A kickstarter for Raspberry Pi lovers

Tue Dec 23, 2014 3:31 am

Here is the link to a project that uses a Raspberry Pi in the most interesting way. Low level tracking as is 4 inches (100 mm) off the ground and you can shoot each other without harm. Just the thing on a long winters night.

Hi there,

And if you have another 'robotic idea' you can take just the Mainboard of the PiPanther + Raspberry Pi and use it to control your own 2-wheeled robot. The PCB is small, but contains almost everything what your custom robot might need. The Ubotia App to control it and stream live video from Raspberry Pi Camera to your smartphone is for free.

Regards,
micas

Part of what I liked about this is that the body is provided along with all the movement parts. Also it appears to be setup for tank battle. Something that my 5 year old nephew and I can do together.
