Well I'm just falling in love with my freerunner. Me and some of my
friends made a small robot and controlled that wireless-ly using the
Freerunner. I used accelerometer for the navigation, so you turn the
FR like a driving wheel and the robot obeys you.

And all I had to do in the FR was a python program to read the
accelerometers and send appropriate data to a microcontroller over the
USB (which was connected to a wireless transmitter).

It was awesome fun! I'll see if I can post a video of it some where.
