    OK, so this guy has a dumb battery, motors, wheels platform, with no sensors. On this, he put a web server with WiFi, which he then controls from a cell phone. So all that this does is run two small DC motors under manual remote control.

    This is lame even by amateur robotics standards today. There's enough compute power there for a full vision system. Running Apache and node.js is not useful. It might be worthwhile to get familiar with the technology, but you don't publicize it.
