Want to learn how to build your own humanoid robot? Rapiro is a programmable, do-it-yourself kit designed to teach robotics to coders and non-coders alike. You'll need a couple of screwdrivers to assemble this pint-sized device, which comes with RGB LED eyes and a limited set of preprogrammed skills. Designed primarily as a learning tool to teach robotics, Rapiro ships with open-source Arduino IDE, a C++-like programming environment. Rapiro has enough room under the hood for a Linux-based, Raspberry Pi credit card-sized PC (sold separately) for expanding the robot's capabilities. What might Rapiro do? Options include sending you message notifications via WiFi or acting as a home security bot. Priced at $450, Rapiro will be available in February.
