Robot's on-board laptop folds out for quick modifications

One of the benefits of having the robots on-board computer mounted in the recessed space on the robot's torso allows modifications to be made to the robot's programming "in the field" or when no other wireless device is available. On Salvius the computer is mounted so that it can fold out to expose the keyboard. Salvius uses GNOME as the GUI for its Ubuntu installation. The computer is a Lenovo Ideapad S10e. When closed the bottom fans face outward so that the computer does not overheat.
