Building strapping

Im not sure what it's called, CTC can you enlighten me? But it's cheap and easy to work with. I've used it on Retro bot for the extra battery holder http://letsmakerobots.com/node/8004 You should be able to get it from you local building supplies store. Easy to bend, and cut it with tin snips.

The Parallella Board?

I was wondering what people think of this board and the supercomputer that this guy built with them.

The Board:

https://www.parallella.org/board/

This guy built his own supercomputer with 8 of them (each with 18 cores) wrapped around a gigabit switch and a couple of Intel I3 NUCs.

Personal assistant robot

Hi all,

I have plans for a robot for a college project: in short, this is a personal assistant robot. It should be able to use Wolfram Alpha (just like Anna) to get information on spoken search terms (I.E. voice recognition) and output them using text-to-speech. This is all for now, as I want to have a working base that I can develop of my own accord.
