Considering the name of the platform, I'm surprised we've not seen more robots either based on, or controlled by, Android.  With that in mind, here are two 'bots that rely on a T-Mobile G1 for their remote control; one which wouldn't look out of place patrolling battlefields, the other slightly more bizarre.

The tech is supplied by open-source robotics experts Surveyor, who are offering a control console for their SRV-1 robot controller.  You can download the code from the project page.

As for the SRV-1, it's a modular robot platform that can be hooked into a variety of motors, camera units, and other devices.  You can either buy the parts separately and construct your own 'bot, or you can stop by one of several vendors and pick up a pre-built machine.
