I have now three mini tanks in front of a camera.
I use these for this first test arena: "battling micro tanks"
These can be controlled from all over the world.
You need PC, Internet Explorer(IE), min 0.5 Mbit/sec and download an activex to be able to control it(if you don’t have it)
You can get a camera view in the original FireFox without the need of loading any acvtivex, but not control my robots.
If you want to control my robots in Firefox, you need a activex plugin.
For now you have to contact me, so I can activate to tanks for you.
Login: minitank / 4455
Mouseclick in camera view to activate controls and use w,a,s,d on the keyboard . Mouseclick is fire
The controls are a bit strange on tank3, when turning it move turret about 30 degrees before it turns.
Contact me 24/7 for a test game.

Here is web IM:
I also made this wireless webcam tank at my university in Sweden at LTH.
Wanna try it?
(This is a funny avatar I found. But it is almost like this it works.)
I have equiped it with paintball and laserdome weapons and a red dot aim.
Contact me for a test drive.

Here is a movie made from a guy in Norway:
This is a site a guy did after a test drive from Australia.
Do you think it would be interesting to have a Internet game with real webcamrobots in a paintball/laserdome battle and be able to hunt real people with the robot?
You can be any where in the world in 30 seconds but as a webcam robot.
You can have a webcam robothumanoid at home and when you need your house cleaned you rent a guy in asia to control your robot and he clean your house from a pc in china. Then you rent a mechanic to fix your car from france. Then you want a professional cook to make you a dinner so you rent a guy from Italy to fix the dinner in your kitchen. And so on.....
I have the robot in Sweden.
Scandinavia and north of Europe get a delay/lag around 0.3-0.5 sec.
The rest of the world get a delay/lag around 1-3 sec becouse they have a satellite link.
Some few people get lucky and dont get a satellite link from USA or Australia and then get a delay/lag around 0.5-1 sec.
I will try to upgrade the web camera robots, so they will be able to compeate against real people on a paintball/laserdome arena/field.
