Oh goody, now the kids can go outside and play ball without running the risk of getting any exorcise.

Okay, it's kind of tempting...but I'm pretty sure my dogs would kill it. I'm not entirely sure how they would kill it, but I am reasonably sure they would figure it out ... And I do need the exorcise.

I like how they always report things like this as if the Android (or iPhone or whatever) is doing the actual magic.

What's really doing it is the capability engineered into the device that's being controlled. Once you've got that set up you can use anything you want to control it.

The fact it uses an Android/iPhone/iPad is almost incidental. 8)

@SJ - I take it that's something your "little devils" need to watch out for? :P
