We've ordered the parts below to convert the "Boat" above into a autonomous robot boat. The basic idea is the android phone can talk to the relay controller over blue-tooth, and the relay controller can turn off and on all kind of things. The phone that we've ordered has a compass, gyro, gps, camera and internet! We figure the computer in the phone is more power than the computers they used to go to the moon. We have started programming with app inventor.
