TeRK Telepresence Robot Kit

TeRK Telepresence Robot Kit: "Community Robotics

The TeRK project has received a three year grant from Intel to conduct research into community robotics. The project, entitled Neighborhood Nets is an interdisciplinary research project that combines design, art, qualitative research, informal learning, and engineering to discover and describe how communities do, or might, make use of emerging networked technologies (such as the Qwerk) through interviews, participant observation, workshops, and participatory design. Thank you Intel!"


This robotic flower blossoms, wilts, tracks objects moving in front of it, and can catch a ball. Check out the recipe to build your own.
