The Polish-based startup, Husarion, launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $50,000 for RoboCORE. RoboCORE is the intersection of hardware and software, and it's an all-in-one package for building your own robot without extensive programming knowledge.
For many robot hobbyists, bringing together the right hardware and software can be a daunting task. But that's exactly where RoboCORE comes into play.
The heart-shaped, open-source RoboCORE combines hardware and software into one solid package. Compared to other similar products on the market, RoboCORE has some pretty sweet and unique features. With its Internet connectivity features, users can stream audio, video, and upload code to their RoboCORE. Numerous ports support servos, sensors, and even SD cards. In addition, RoboCORE is compatible with sensors and motors from the LEGO Mindstorms kit.
"If you have ever programmed the Arduino, you can easily handle the RoboCORE too. RoboCORE libraries are based on real-time operating system, so in an easy and transparent way you can create multi-threaded, real-time algorithms defining your robot's behaviour, with a strict control over the execution time of each operation."
