Evalbot has arrived!

Despite doubting that TI would honor the $125 off coupon, guess what arrived at my door last week?

Amazing!  I promptly put it together and let it wander around the living room while my 2 year old chased it, stepping on it repeatedly while trying to trigger the bump sensors with his foot.

Hopefully I'll find some time to play with it and try to write some code for it in linux, thanks to this post, Evalbot: Hello World!, linked from Hackaday.

Although wheels and motors are great, what I would really like to swap the motors for some LEDs, plugging this into my home network, and using this as a home automation server.  Or sell it for a profit.  Either way...
