I for one welcome our laser-guided, Mac Mini-powered robot masters


Right now, plugged into my Mac I have an iPod Touch, an SD card reader, and a currently charging Palm Centro. Did you know that you can also control a laser-guided robot with your Mac? It’s true!

Scienticians from Georgia Tech and Emory University have developed just such a robot, called the EL-E, which is capable of tracking objects targeted by a laser and picking them up, all powered by a Mac Mini.

Later, they’re planning on upgrading to a Mac Pro, after which the computer/robot hybrid will scour the globe for Sarah Connor.
