So from above you can see the construction of the bot itself is pretty easy, there are full instructions provided and it also comes with all the tools you need.
The next part of the build is getting the Pi setup with TensorFlow and getting some image recognition working.
I started off with PiBakery to get the basic setup and installed the camera and servo software then moved onto installing TensorFlow and looked into the image recognition script included.
I then wrote a Python script that will take a photo and call the image recognition and pass in the image taken for analysis.
The script also controls the pincers on the front, closing and opening them.
