Six engineering students in France have modded an open source Pekee robot to respond to Nintendo DS controls. It uses the the d-pad, microphone, gyroscopes built-in to game cartridges and a target interface on the touchscreen to control the robot wirelessly. Watching the video made me wonder why Nintendo hasn't announced a DS-powered R.O.B. v.2 yet. It would be amazing. [ via DS Fanboy]
