RAPIRO: The Humanoid Robot Kit for your Raspberry Pi by Shota Ishiwatari #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

RAPIRO: The Humanoid Robot Kit for your Raspberry Pi by Shota Ishiwatari.

RAPIRO is a cute and affordable robot kit designed to work with a Raspberry Pi. It comes with a Arduino-compatible servo controller.

RAPIRO: Looks small, acts large, its limitless possibilities all depend on how you program it.

  • Low cost, 1/4th the price of current aesthetic robot kits.
  • Low cost, 1/10th the price of current linux-powered humanoid robot kits.
  • Comes with 12 servo motors and full-color LED of eyes.
  • Easy assembly. Anyone can assemble a RAPIRO with only a screwdriver, without the need for any soldering.
  • The servo control board is programmable and is completely compatible with the Arduino.
  • Designed to mount the Raspberry Pi and Camera module in the head.
  • Designed to mount a PSD distance sensor and speakers
  • We plan to publish our sample code and 3D data openly for community customisation.


I believe that RAPIRO can be a catalyst between robotics and Paspberry Pi. We want to start a revolution in cute, cool, affordable, customizable, and programmable robots. If we are successful in our kickstarter, we will publish 3D data (.stl) on our website, allowing you to customize the RAPIRO with a 3D printer.
