Description

Rapiro is a cute, affordable, and easy to assemble humanoid robot kit. Comes with 12 servo motors and an Arduino compatible Rapiro main board. Designed for Raspberry Pi. Its limitless possibilities all depend on you.

Product from Japan!

Easy to assemble

Rapiro is easy to assemble! All you need to build is two screwdrivers and to follow the simple step-by-step instructions.

Works immediately

Not a programmer? Not a problem! Rapiro comes with a pre-programmed Rapiro main board which works right after assembling.

Programmable

The Rapiro main board is Arduino compatible and you can program it using the Arduino IDE. Your Rapiro could dance or sweep your desk if you program it to do so.

Customizable

Rapiro has countless possibilities for expansion! By installing a Raspberry Pi and sensors, you can add more functions like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, image recognition and whatever you want.

Functions

12 servo motors

Rapiro comes with a total of 12 servo motors, one for its neck, one in the waist, four for the two feet, and the final six for its two arms. The torques of the six servos in the neck, waist and two feet, are 2.5kgf-cm(35ozf-in). The torques of six servos in the two arms are 1.5kgf-cm(21ozf-in). Both operating speeds are 0.12 sec/60°. Both maximum angles are 180°

RGB LED eyes

Rapiro's eyes can be lit up brightly by RGB LEDs. You can give a full facial expression to Rapiro, by programming its eye color.

Arduino Compatible Controller

Rapiro comes with a total of 12 servo motors, one for its neck, one in the waist, four for the two feet, and the final six for its two arms. The torques of the six servos in the neck, waist and two feet, are 2.5kgf-cm(35ozf-in). The torques of six servos in the two arms are 1.5kgf-cm(21ozf-in). Both operating speeds are 0.12 sec/60°. Both maximum angles are 180°

Arduino is a combination of an 8-bit AVR based microcontroller board and C++ like development environment (Arduino IDE).

You can install Raspberry Pi

If you want more functions, you could do it by installing a Raspberry Pi (sold seprately) inside Rapiro. Raspberry Pi can be programmed with a wide variety of programming languages for Linux. Depending on your programming, your Rapiro could give you message notifications with Wi-Fi enabled or could protect your home as a security robot using a camera module!

Rapiro is designed for Raspberry Pi model A and B. You can also install Raspberry Pi model B+ with small modifications to the plastics parts of Rapiro. See the compatibility information of Rapiro and the model B+..
