The Pi Tank is the first open source 3D printable Raspberry Pi based robot with a Kinect sensor that you can control with your smartphone. The purpose of this project is to create a robot that anyone could build. The robot can act as an artificial pet and anyone can write software for it (preferably on mobile platforms so that the distribution would be the easiest). The first version was created by Kristjan Järvan, Madis Kaasik, Ulf Anso and Ilya Kuzovkin in Garage48 event 08.02.2015. The design stl files are downloadable at Thingiverse and the Raspberry image from GitHub. There will be a better initial mobile app for it – we want it to work just like Parrot AR drone interface (camera on the background and buttons on top). And yes – it has a laser.
