Power A Robot
OK, maybe this isn't a DIY project, but it demonstrates the tablet's versatility. The folks at iRobot, best known for its Roomba robotic vacuum cleaners, are developing Ava, a prototype robot that uses an iPad as its brain.
Equipped with numerous sensors for autonomous navigation, Ava may someday find real-world employment in numerous fields, including the healthcare, retail, and security industries. A shipping version of Ava probably won't have a gangly iPad head, but rather a display better suited for an upright robot that likes to roam.
