Linux-based K-9 doppelganger treads ELC

At the Embedded Linux Conference, Intel’s new Open Hardware Technical Evangelist showed off a Linux- and MinnowBoard based robot that mimics Doctor Who’s K-9.

Last fall at the Embedded Linux Conference Europe in Edinburgh, Scotland, Red Hat engineer John ‘Warthog’ Hawley demonstrated a robot based on Doctor Who’s robotic dog K-9. His treadwheel bot runs Angstrom Linux on Intel’s open spec, Atom-based MinnowBoard single-board computer, the forerunner of the new MinnowBoard Max.
