Anyone for Pi? Mods and hacks for the Raspberry Pi

This robot vehicle is being controlled using a Raspberry Pi.

The user controls the direction the vehicle is travelling by pressing the WSAD keys on a keyboard.

The control program was built using Node.js and is running on a LAMP server. The controls are relayed to the vehicle using the Pi's general-purpose input/output pins.

You can see a video of the vehicle in action.
