Linux PC Robot < 500$ DIY Linux robot

Looking for a cheap DIY Linux robot? This is the Linux PC robot project.
The objective of LinuxPCRobot is to build a fully functional robotic development platform for $500 or less using linux, commonly available components, a little skill, and some good old fashioned scrounging.

The robot can be build from junk taken out of old children’s toys, there’s even a tutorial for building an actuator from a mouse. With the children’s“ride around” toy wheels and motors, it can accommodate some serious weight (60~80 lbs total, is that enough for a water gun?). It would be nice to build some more pleasing outer shell for it and an android app for remote control.
