JavaScript is finding its way further and further out of the browser. Only a couple of years ago, if someone had said they wanted to build robots only using JS you'd think they were crazy. Having tried it at the time those naysayers were correct - it was a disaster.

Recently, particularly as a result of the nodebots project, JS Robotics has started to come of age and it's now possible to build simple robots using JavaScript for the majority of the stack - from everything from control and sensors to motors to lights, AI and computer vision.

This talk will give an overview of what's currently possible, where the current gotchas are, how to get started and have some interactive elements that can be played with during or after the session.

This talk was given at MelbJS as well as NodeBots Day Sydney in August 2013.

It is aimed at web developers who may be very confident with JavaScript but who have never touched hardware to show how straightforward it is to start playing with hardware now.
