EPFL delivers a multi-functional educational robot for slightly over $100

EPFL delivers a multi-functional educational robot for slightly over $100 | Big and Open Data, FabLab, Internet of things | Scoop.it
Thymio II is a new educational robot designed by Swiss research institute EPFL.

 

In the past year alone, Swiss research institute EPFL (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne/Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) has brought us things such as a mini ionic motor for satellites, “nano velcro” that removes pollutants from water, and a system that allows paralyzed rats to walk again. While none of these items will ever likely be available to regular consumers, now there is a piece of EPFL-developed technology that you can get your hands on. It’s an open-source educational robot known as Thymio II, and it only costs a little over 100 bucks!

 

Unlike some other educational ‘bots such as NAO or Zeno, Thymio II is not humanoid in form – if anything, it looks a little like a Roomba robotic vacuum cleaner. Although its variable-speed wheels are intended primarily for allowing it to scoot around, they can also be connected to user-supplied moving parts such as arms, propellers, winches, or just about anything else.

 

Besides those wheels, however, it also features a microphone and speaker, a 3-axis accelerometer, five proximity sensors, two ground sensors, a temperature sensor, and 39 LEDs which allow its body to illuminate in different colors.

 

It can accept programming via a USB connection (which is also used to charge its lithium-polymer battery) or a memory card slot. Programming is created using EPFL’s robotics-specific ASEBA language.

 

Thymio II is available now, at a price of 99 Swiss francs (US$106)

Why Design Now?: Contour Crafting

Why? Contour Crafting is a construction technology that potentially reduces energy use and emissions by using a rapid-prototype or 3-D printing process to fabricate structures".

 

La Fabricación por Contorno es una tecnología de construcción que reduce potencialmente el uso de energía y emisiones usando un prototipado rápido o un proceso de fabricación en tres dimensiones para construir estructuras. Es una tecnología del año 2008 pero que provocará un cambio radical en el sector de la Construcción en pocos años.
