Eddie is a new type of robot from Parallax Inc. designed to foster creativity, innovation and experimentation. Compatible with Microsoft’s Robotics Developer Studio, Eddie can roam autonomously, see in 3D using the Microsoft Kinect™, and be driven remotely using a wireless controller.
The included control board uses the 8-core Propeller microcontroller to directly control two 12V motors and collect data from several sensors around the robot. The entire base is controlled over a simple USB connection and convenient open-source command interface. The Eddie Control Board provides access to additional I/O, making Eddie fully expandable with numerous sensors & accessories.
Note: Laptop, Microsoft Kinect, and wireless remote not included.
