Kopernikus

Kopernikus is a small robot, that will cost less than EUR1000 to build. If you put it together, you will have something like a remote control car, equipped with a quad core computer, a stereo camera, audio input and output and a video projector.

We've built Kopernikus for ourselves, as a platform to experiment with AI technologies, out of low priced electronic components with accessible tools, designed to be modified easily.

Seperator-Line

To enable more people to experiment with low cost robotics, we've decided to open source our hardware plans and software.

Please note that this is an early stage of development. We're not selling a product, but share our design and progress.
