Nearly every month we would either play board games or have movie marathons. This was going to be an issue when he left for college.
On the software side I had a skype call running on my iPhone 5, though I am not sure how I recorded this video as it was the only camera I owned. The NXT robot was being remotely controlled by an app I wrote with AI2. Unfortunately, I do not have the account I used to create this app anymore and cannot recover the code. The android tablet I was using, an original Nexus 7, was remotely controlled through my computer. On my computer I was running TeamViewer, which allowed Mark to remotely control my computer, and by proxy the tablet.
This entire system worked pretty smoothly, and I was happy with the results. Looking back on it now I know how complicated I made everything and if I rebuilt it today, which I am considering as a future project, I would make the entire system much simpler and remove the computer from the equation entirely. Opting for peer-to-peer control of the robot.
