21st Century Robot

Fancy building your own robot? Then you might want to investigate the 21st Century Robot Project, a collective that aims to encourage people to develop and share their knowledge about robots, whether it’s for home, hobby, education or research purposes. Their latest humanoid kit, brought out in partnership with Trossen Robotics, is the HR-OS1 Endoskeleton. It is an entirely open source, Intel powered humanoid that can connect to apps on your tablet or smartphone. You’re encouraged to customise, adapt and personalise it, so no two are the same – right down to the 3D printable shell. The kit costs $1,600, and the default shell – the Orion, pictured – will be available soon.
