This cute, affordable and easy-to-assemble humanoid has endless customisation options It may be small, but the Rapiro is very much capable of acting big should you programme it to do so. It relies on a Raspberry Pi for its processing power and actually takes its name from ‘Raspberry Pi Robot’. Its ability to be continually upgraded and changed is Rapiro’s main strength; the more you put into it the more you get out. The possibility to learn about robotics with Rapiro is a huge selling point. You do have to buy the Raspberry Pi separately, but it’s relatively inexpensive so don’t hold it against this cute little robot. Rapiro is recommended for anyone aged 15 or over, but younger children can have a huge amount of fun with Rapiro under the supervision of an adult.
