Node Cylons

Last weekend RefactorU's team 'frackin toasters' programmed an ar-drone using Node.js.

This was definitely one of the most rewarding programming days I have ever had. Not only did we program a drone, we used input from an ultrasonic sensor to know where the drone was in relation to us!

The drone would reverse when we walked towards it, approach us when we walked backwards, and stay put when we stood still.

Our team took home the 'Top node-copter engineering team' and the award for using external hardware!

I wanted to thank nodecopter, sparkfun, and Refactoru for putting this event on!
