Shows the power and reach of JavaScript, which spreads across platforms. Its on mobile ( phonegap ), its controlling hardware ( johnny five ), its running as a server platform ( node ) and what not.


The inspiration came from last JSFoo when Rakesh Pai did the node Robo Stuff. It was fun building a robotic platform from the scratch. So if you ask me the price of a wheel, I can tell that to you and where can you get that from S.P. Road.

It all started with creating a prototype for blinking an LED when some one tweets about JavaScript. The idea of creating a bridge between real and virtual world has been quite exciting.

The preview of the “monster” as I call it, has got attention from some key people.
