The OpenSource Wizards of Menlo Park over at Willow Garage have announced the pre-order release of their much anticipated TurtleBot.
Looking a little like the beginnings of R2D2 or a Dalek, the TurtleBot can can explore your house on its own, build 3D pictures, take panoramas, and more. Using the open source OpenCV and PCL you can teach your TurtleBot all kinds of tricks, or you can test out all the shared software for your new little buddy from ROS.org.
The full kit, with software, hardware, a kinect, a laptop and the iRobot Create Robot will set you back $1200. If you already have the iRobot create and the laptop, then $500 gets you the software and remaining hardware.
