RapiroAn element14 exclusive!  We are pleased to have secured three Rapiro kits courtesy of SwitchScience and the Kiluck Corporation.  In order to maximise the potential of this unit, we will supply a Raspberry Pi and Pi Camera with each unit.
Product Information
It's Programmable!
The RAPIRO board is Arduino compatible and you can program it using the Arduino IDE. Your RAPIRO could dance or sweep your desk if you program it to do so.
It's Customizable!
RAPIRO has countless possibilities for expansion! By mounting a Raspberry Pi and sensors (sold separately), you can customize your RAPIRO any way you want.
It has 12 Servo Motors!
RAPIRO comes with a total of 12 servo motors, one for its neck, one in the waist, four for the two feet, and the final six for its two arms. The torques of the six servos in the neck, waist and two feet, are 2.5kgf-cm(35ozf-in). The torques of six servos in the two arms are 1.5kgf-cm(21ozf-in). Both operating speeds are 0.12 sec/60°.
