This robot is old, and they don't make it anymore, but I have it, and have
successfully driven it with LiveCode (when it was Revolution).

The ER1 has a built-in UI for programming it, but it also has a telnet
interface.  I found an old MetaCard Telnet.mc stack that I modified to send
the ER1 commands like "move forward 3 feet", "turn left 30 degrees", move
backward 6 inches", "say Hello there human".  It was great fun!
