So Robby and I gave a talk at Erlang Factory SF 2014 entitled "Distributed Robots with Elixir". It's about using Elixir for all kinds of fun things - from interfacing with a Sphero and a Parrot ARDrone, to running Erlang on Android and using JInterface to interact with an Elixir node running on a RaspberryPi to remote control a tank. The video was just posted, so here it is:
