This video shows a well-done iPhone interface for controlling the movements of a robot. I thought to post this here, since – as some might remember – we had an assignment for a couple of years, where the task was to come up with an alternative remote control interface for the Robosapien.
It was always interesting to see emerging products as inspiration for the redesign in many assignment submissions. Last time we run this assignment, many students came up with WII like interfaces. We actually dropped the assignment the year the iPhone was released, since we feared a majority of iPhone-like interfaces.
