Here's the beginning basic diagram of a proposed "Robot Pool".  Initially it would be the Incubator which is the build machine all MRL builds come from running an instance of MRL with a special service and an XMPP service.  Robot Buddies who were interested in joining the pool would accept the Incubator as a buddy, and Incubator would accept the new robot as a buddy.

Update 2013.11.03

DNA - (Description of Neighboring Automata) 
This is a contextul configuration - allowing meaningful defaults, without taking away the ability to TWEAK 

The following is an InMoov head with many neighboring services..  servos, tracking, pid, arduino, etc...
With DNA you can split or merge services, or graft new ones of different types into the structure.

WebGUI Updates

GroG's picture

This is now the default index page for MRL's webgui.
There is a REST API link which queries MRL's currently running services and returns a dynamically created interface which allows activation of any method with any service.  You may program and control with URLs :)
