Robot Mod Uses Nintendo DS Touchscreen, Microphone for Controls

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]
