Ok, so this deal has absolutely nothing to do with Apple products whatsoever. But just look at this thing. It’s so cool that I can’t help myself. A DIY programmable robot car that has voice control capability? I may have to cobble together some after-Christmas money get this one myself.
This DIY kit is from Sunfounder and is based on their PiSmart platform. PiSmart is an “intelligent platform” built to run on the Raspberry Pi that adds Speech to Text, Text to Speech, and servo and motor control capabilities. This kit comes with everything you need to build a robot that can follow lines, avoid obstacles, and obey voice commands.
There are also additional pin headers on the board, allowing you to add additional sensors and functionality later on. The Raspberry Pi with PiSmart also supports graphical programming with Scratch, making it easy to get started programming your robot.
Our Deals site is offering this Raspberry Pi Robot Car DIY Kit for $169.
