This software establishes either a hardware serial or software serial connection 
using the right expansion header on the Arduino Esplora (the left connector appears

ExploraXbeeRemote is a fork of the example EsploraRemote but it uses Serial1 (the
hardware serial pins D0 and D1 which are on the expansion header at Pins 7 and 8.
This is useful for making a wireless esplora controller.  

EsploraXbeeController melds EsploraXbeeRemote with the EsploraKart controller software,
making the Esplora responsive to input and outputing command when the buttons and
joystick press/move making the Esplora a wireless controller. A cell phone emergency
charge battery is strapped onto the Esplora with Xbee making it a truly wireless controller.

Finally EsploraXbeeRobot uses the Esplora to output ASCII commands when buttons are pressed
and the joystick moved or clicked to control a robotic head wirelessly.
