THE SINGULARITY IS NEAR
Robots controlled over the internet is a burgeoning field in robotics. Robotics systems like ROS make use of websockets to allow the crowd to control robots. Crowd-controlled robots can perform tasks previously limited to domain-experts. Our hack, Cookie Monster, demonstrates a web controlled robot system based in Node.JS and websockets. The visitors to our website cookiemonster.me can vote on whether the robot allows the user to take the cookie, or whether the cookie gets crushed by a hammer!
