Intel's 3D Printable (Open Source) "Jimmy" Robot

Meet Intel's 21st Century Robot, "JIMMY"!

 Intel futurist Brian David Johnson says, "Users will have the ability to customize their robot to their own specifications." Johnson said, "You could make the robot into a dog, who could dance the tango, and then add an alarm clock app, and then the robotic dog would dance the tango when it's time to wake up. It could also, for example, be used to remind a grandparent when to take their medicine."

You can learn more directly from Intel at their Jimmy microsite "21st Century Robot"

It is hoped that the files needed to create your own robot will be available for download for around $1000 USD - http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/corporate-responsibility/better-future/21st-century-robot-program.html
