POLYRO Robot is Open Source Geekery at its Finest



Robots are cool and all around the country and world lots of students, engineers and researchers are hard at work perfecting the human machine interface, and robots are the focus of much of that study. A new bot has been unveiled called POLYRO - short for oPen sOurce friendLY RObot. The designer of the bot is Tim Payne and POLYRO is surprisingly inexpensive to build. The bot has webcam eyes, appears to ride on a Roomba base, and its brain is a Linux netbook. It uses 11 Robotis Dynamixel servos and has a total price of under $2,000. link
