Open Sourced Robot For Modding

Now here is a very interesting concept. I-Robot urges you to buy the Create so you can make it your own. Directed at the hack/moding communities. I-Robot is very specific on why you should purchase their product, because they want you, the consumer to come up with the most imaginative idea to mod this lil guy. Unlike other devices such as the Wii, where mods and hacks pop up everywhere on the net, which are cool but are not the main functionality of them. This device is meant specifically for the purpose of hacking. Available from $129, the Create comes prep'd with lots of room/ports to add on hardware. As well as already functioning devices such as it's 30 built in sensors that can be used to make the bionic hamster ball navigation system. Keep a steady eye out for creative mods for the Create on You-Tube and all over the net!
