Telepresence Robot Kit

For my senior honors research project, I designed and prototyped robots for the Telepresence Robot Kit, part of the Toy Robots Initiative at Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute. Stolen from the web site: "The TeRK project aims to make educational robotics accessible to a large community of college and pre-college students as well as home and hobby robot enthusiasts. To this end TeRK includes the development of affordable robot designs that can be built with hand tools and commercially available off-the-shelf parts." The challenge was to build functional robots that can perform complex tasts with only the simplest of tools and a lack of experience building robots, or anything at all.
