Grobot v2 First Impressions

I like it. I really, really, like it.

They added full motion video and DVR capabilities and still managed to make the whole thing smaller, faster and lighter! The new mount is head and shoulders above the old one as it is also smaller but adds a tighten-able tilt adjuster that works very well. Not sure how I feel about them moving the light and motion sensors off of the main unit and into a separate sensor array with the temperature and humidity sensors, but I guess it makes sense. The little cage over the temperature and humidity sensors is a nice touch, though.

And most of all, I like that it’s still Open Source Hardware!
