WHAT CAN I DO WITH INTELLISAURUS?

Intellisaurus is intended for many skill levels. The easy to follow instructions allow someone with a modest skill level to assemble the robot and have it walking in a matter of hours. There is no soldering or programming required to build and play with it. With a little more in-depth involvement you can connect the AI hardware and enable Google Assistant or Alexa. Impress your friends with a smart speaker that also walks. If you consider yourself a true maker or hacker then get into the source code and modify it. Or, customize the shell in your favorite 3D modeling software and print new parts. You decide!

This fun loving guy reaches 8 inches tall. He sports an Arduino Nano to control the motors and a Raspberry Pi Zero W to connect to the internet and run Google Assistant, or other various AI algorithms. He walks he talks he struts his stuff! Its all within the reach of your imagination! This versatile frame can wear different shells such as Triceratops, Stegosaurus, or Dragon, each sold, or created on your 3D printer, separately. All open source software, so you are in control, modify, and improve your Intellisaurus to satisfy your Inner Maker.

Base Kit

The base kit includes all you need to build the robot. All the electronics, sensors, servos, screws and other items are included (except the two 18650 batteries). All the plastic parts with necessary screws and bolts. The only tools you need is one small Philips screw driver.

This kit includes an IR remote controller, to allow you to control the robots movements directly, without any of the Artificial Intelligence features

Animal Shell – Package

Buy a shell pre-printed or download files and print your own. The shell adds weight to the head and tail which is necessary to balance well while walking.

These shells are provided as a downloadable STL files. So you can print or even modify them. Print in you favorite color. Use your favorite 3D software to customize the shell.

There are three shells to choose from, Triceratops, Dragon, or Stegosaurus.

Artificial Intelligence – Package

Get this bundle of Raspberry Pi, audio hat, speaker, and camera to create an intelligent robot that sees, speaks and understands. You do not need this Package to have the robot walk. The Base Kit includes an Arduino and IR controller which can control the basic walking motions. The Raspberry Pi in this Package sends high level commands tell the Arduino which way to turn and where to go.

This kit does not include an SD card reader for your computer. To make the most out of this kit you will need to connect the Raspberry Pi to your own monitor, keyboard, and mouse. There is a SD card reader on the Raspberry Pi.
