Hoverbot: A robot built from repurposed consumer products #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Super awesome, and thorough, project that is further broken down into parts so you can mix and match to create your own post consumer robot!

Shared by Isabella Simon on Hackaday.io:

Most modern robots fall into one of two categories: professional grade or hobbyist level. Professional robots are generally built for a single purpose (e.g. industrial manufacturing, vacuuming, security) and cannot be easily adapted for other applications. Hobbyist level robots are often built for flexibility and extensibility but the hardware required to make them robust and reliable is expensive.

Hoverbot bridges the gap between the two categories by repurposing existing cheap consumer products and leveraging modern software tools. The result is a moderately priced (~$250), extensible, functional robot.

This project is broken down into a collection of modules that can be either used in combination to create your own Hoverbot or used individually as components in other projects. Hoverbot modules:
