Learn how to turn almost any toy RC vehicle into a simple robot with Mike Hogan.  Because most RC toy vehicles are incredibly similar, you can easily learn how to hack them.  We'll teach you some of the theory behind these circuits and then we'll help you put it into practice.  A cut here, a jump there, a microcontroller and a little code and -- voila! -- you will be the proud creator/owner of a small-but-evil robot, just in time for XMas. 

We will have microcontroller kits and cars available if you need them, or you are free to bring your own.  If you bring your own controller, we would recommend that you bring an Arduino or an MSP430 Launchpad.   If you bring your own vehicle, just make sure is has a TX2/RX2 chip (as a suggestion, the Thunder Tumbler is one of my favorite bot platforms).
