The adorable TJBot is a robotics kit for exploring Artificial Intelligence with IBM Watson. It's constructed out of laser-cut panels and powered by a Raspberry Pi to interact with the outside world using speech, motion, and light. If this sounds daunting, don't worry, because it comes with assembly instructions, step-based coding projects, and everything you need to get started with your TJBot. It's also open source so you can hack and modify the existing design to your heart's content!

The TJBot was developed at IBM to encourage people to dive into the world of AI and showcase design practices and projects. What will you develop with your TJBot? A speech-driven dancing robot, a robotic DJ, or even an automated explorer? The choice is yours.

  • TJBot Laser Cut Cardboard
  • Raspberry Pi Model 3
  • 16GB NOOBS Card
