Watch a modded Hexbug perform autonomous tasks

Would love to see an arduino set up so you don’t have to use the phone as the brains, really cool and I will be checking in to see what else they are making

I doubt an image recognition software like this could run on an arduino.

A raspberry pi might be a better choice since you are going to need a camera with a decent resolution for any distance. It would be interesting to gut a cheap phone and see if you could get to this to work on board one of the larger hexbug platforms.
