The ersatz felt-covered Tux is wireless
So its particularly difficult to control from a linux based pc then :)
What gift do you give the Linux nut who has everything? Why, a programmable Linux mascot droid that spins around on its rump, that's what. Tux Droid Tux Droid: it squawks! It lights up! It codes Perl! The ersatz felt-covered Tux is wireless and radio-controlled, courtesy of a fish-styled IR pick up and 2.4GHz transmitter …
So it has an IR pick up, and a 2.4 GHz Tx for the PC. Can someone please clarify whether this wee little beastie is IR, RF or both.
Oh, and radio controlled is wireless. I might just be a little picky here, and I assume it uses both technologies, but a more clear piece of tech info there would be good.
Mac and Windows users could easily use this thing, if they wanted.
You said the software was Open Source. So all Mac and Windows users have to do is compile it for their platforms! I'm guessing the Windows C compiler has some sort of flashy GUI where you just drag-n-drop a makefile and it does the rest for you. And Macs are just Unix workstations, so they'll just use GCC.
The Windows version is a little Steve Ballmer bot which destroys some of your furniture every time you do a search on Google, and makes threatening noises any time the word "Linux" appears on a web page. Even better, fire up Visual Studio and it breaks out into a profuse sweat, spinning around on it's rump and repeating the word "developers" over and over.
Of course it's incompatible with Mac and Linux. Sheesh, do you even have to ask?
Coat. Bloody cold out.
