My only experience with robotics is Lego Mindstorms ;)
As for the weight issue, have you seen the new Sony Vaio UX 180P? Perfect
for his bike. Could be the cell phone (via Skype), iPod, and navigation

My one concern about using Rev for robotics control is that as far as I can
tell, it's single-threaded... how would it handle monitoring multiple
sensors and controlling multiple servos simultaneously?
