Cyclops robot is micro-ATX motherboard based robot, which mean it hes 2GB DDR3 memory and hard drive for 320GB. It can able run any operation system like Windows XP, 7 or Linux, which mean it can be programmed by any language with using any library like OpenCV. It can work remotely or autonomously, it is depend only what king program it is running.
I made it during this summer at my home=)

Really cool! Makes me want to build one too!

How were you able to power the micro ATX motherboard? What battery did you use? I've been interested in finding an ITX or ATX motherboard computer system for a while now to power some of my robots.

It is really powerful robot! Which give you a lot of flexibility in hardware and actually sometimes cost less than robot on another boards.
The main problem it is to power board from the battery, but it can be solve using 12V DC-DC ATX power supply like one of from this ( About battery, you can use any battery which is suitable with your mother board by power.
