Robot Education Mars Related

SpaceNut ... there did not seem to be a topic in Education about robots

The Holiday Gift Idea catalogs are starting to arrive ...

For a relatively small sum, this product (to be posted shortly) is pretty amazing.

It basically seems to be giving wheels to a smart phone!  I presume the operator uses another smart phone, but a laptop or other computer might work.

I bring this up in the context of the effort of GW Johnson to re-invent the Mars Lander for proving landing pads.

Product Story
This is the remote-controlled vehicle modeled after the NASA Mars 2020 Perseverance rover. Its all-terrain tires and shock absorbing suspension enable the rover to conquer uneven environments whether on Earth or the red planet. It has a front camera arm that secures a smartphone, allowing the vehicle to take pictures and record footage—capturing a point-of-view documentation of your exploration missions. Its remote control provides forward/backward, left/right, and sideways movement just like the real Mars rover from up to 98' away. Requires two AA batteries. Ages 5 and up.

So why would we (NewMars Lander Design Team) miss a chance to mount a smart phone on our little pounder rover robot?
