Heeeeeere’s Jimmy: Intel’s 3-D Printed Robot Will Hit the Market Later This Year
Intel plans to bring its fully customizable, 3-D printable robot kit to market by the end of the year, with a consumer version starting around $1,600.
The hardware designs will be freely available online, allowing anyone with access to a 3-D printer to generate and assemble the basic parts. The kit, which will go on sale at 21stCenturyRobot.com, includes everything that can’t be printed, including the motors, wires, battery, processor and more. […]
The robot is also open source, allowing developers to build their own apps and users to download whatever software applications they want to run on their machines.
