Researchers at the University of Oklahoma have created a four-wheel robot that uses a Mac mini for its brain and an iSight camera to view and hear its environment. MacDailyNews reports that the computer connects to the robot via a USB-to-serial adapter, with iChat transmitting auditory and visual data through a FireWire cable. Researchers chose the Mac mini because of its size as well as its built-in wireless and FireWire connectivity.
