Robots[2] powered by smartphones are nothing new, but robots powered by Nokia[3] smartphones are a rarity.  Make has recently introduced Niko, a robot made from Lego Mindstorm NEXT 2.0 components and uses a Nokia N900 as its brain.

This video[4] shows Niko roving around and taking photos whenever it bumps into objects.  It can now also accept commands and post messages and photos on Twitter[5] .  Of course, those commands are basic like turning left or right, as well as moving forward and backward.
