Even if you can't afford sending a robot to Mars and creeping your flesh by making it climb some obviously too high rock, you can at least remote control a Sony EVI-D31 camera located in our lab.

On your left, you should see the image taken by the cam in real-time (that is, with a few seconds network delay). You can click on the picture to point an object, the camera will center on it. Other controls let you change the zoom and return the camera to 0,0. The resolution control allows you to get a poor quality picture with a higher frame rate.

By the way, you'll need a browser able to handle animated GIF, frames with JavaScript enable in order to get all the stuff working.
