DIY Dr Who K9 With A Raspberry Pi Brain #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Super cool Dr Who K9 companion built with a Raspberry Pi. via radio times
English IT architect Richard Hopkins built his first K9 when he was eight years old, made out of cardboard cutouts from blueprints in Doctor Who Weekly magazine.
His latest version of the metal mutt is much, much more sophisticated.
Wagging tail, flashing eyes, flapping radar ears, nodding head, moving body, head-mounted camera AND soon-to-be revealed speech recognition: this telepresence robot is the ultimate DIY Doctor Who project.
