One of the best resources for all things DIY, MAKE Magazine, just published a story I wrote about Sparky, the Autonomous Telepresence Robot project that I’ve been working on since the early 90’s.  

The project has come along way since those early days, transforming from a crude assemblage of found parts and junk into a robust, web-based, mobile telepresence platform that uses cutting edge technology to function almost anywhere. 

There are free instructions and software available at, so you can build your own Sparky robot using stuff you probably already have.
