Motorized head on Kickstarter

by jriley » Mon Mar 26, 2012 9:22 pm

Have any of you seen the Galileo motorized head for iPhone on Kickstarter? http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/449163977/galileo-your-ios-in-motion?ref=category Looking at that video, I imagine how nice it would be to have Papywizard on iOS. Has anyone ever successfully jailbroken an iOS device, installed Python, and gotten Papywizard to work? I wonder how difficult it would be for someone to port just the functionality of the code (but not done in Python) over to the iOS. Any ideas? These Nokia devices are getting pretty old and carrying a laptop is a drag. The screen on an iPad would be just right :)

Nice! Instead of iPhone, I would build such head for an Android -based device...
