    Professors are using Macs and LabVIEW technology at Virginia Tech to compete in the RoboCup.
    Team:SPRint created DARwin, a 3 year old robot, training for the RoboCup. DARwIn thinks with a 4-inch-square Pentium-powered PC/104 computer running the realtime version of LabVIEW. The other TEAM:SPRInt favorite is the Mac. The team uses a 20-inch and a 24-inch iMac, a pair of MacBooks, and a pair of MacBook Pros, all linked by Airport Extreme, for code development in LabVIEW. An Apple Xserve server with Xserve RAID provides a terabyte of data storage and helps keep track of the revisions of the developed codes for the robots.
