Bilibot: A $1200 Dollar Robot Built Around The Microsoft Kinect Sensor
The Bilibot Project started at MIT through the exploration of what could be done with the new Microsoft Kinect sensor. Besides being a great sensor for gesture technology, the Kinect is a powerful robotic sensor - so much so that robotics laboratories at universities across the world are replacing their $5000 sensors with the $150 Kinect! The Bilibot project takes advantage of this new technological breakthrough to provide a research quality robot at a hobby robot's price.
- an iRobot Create
- a Kinect (modified to run off of a battery)
- a computer running all the nessecary open source software
- a small robot arm that uses geared motors, and can lift objects weighting up to 3 lbs
- and all the mounting hardware, , wiring and electronics needed to put it all together.
