One of the coolest little developer boards out there is the Raspberry Pi. That board can be used for any project needing electronics for control that you can dream up. A new robotics kit made for use with the Raspberry Pi is getting ready to hit Kickstarter.




That robotics kit is called the PiBot. PiBot will have a range of features that electronics fans will appreciate including voice recognition, face recognition, and live HD streaming from the PiBot camera. The robot will be controllable from a smartphone and tablet.



PiBot will also be able to follow lines, measure distance, and use GPS. The company behind the PiBot also plans to have workshops that will allow people to come in and play with the robotics kit. There are a few things we don't know at this time such as when the PiBot will hit market and how much it will cost.
