OK, so I like the Sparky robot concept (Mac mini based telepresence) but I want to use iChat, the Arduino and better motors. One piece of the puzzle is replacing the Make controller board and the code that goes between it and Skype. Here's a hunt for hints.
One comment on this post:
"This is a great library. I have used it to send messages to an Arduino using ruby to listen to AIM and then send messages over a serial connection, again using ruby, to the Arduino and then display the message on an LCD and control various external devices. Much fun."
