About this project

The idea of robot has intrigued us for a while -- with some considering it a crucial part of future society. Robots are amazing and exciting, but the problem is that robots when we heard about them, are either too expensive or too complicated, that keeps makers, explorers and innovators from having their first robot!

Introducing CrazyPi, the perfectly genuine robot kit for everyone to build their first DIY robot! With the astonishing SLAM functionality and one of the first robots to implement remote real-time audio / video streaming, the CrazyPi Robot Kit, it’s the first time ever for robot to be this approachable and affordable.  

 

 

Implement audio / video streaming even from another country, take care of your plant or pet whenever you are not at home! Start customizing your own robot at this amazing low cost!

We know exactly how much you love the SLAM functionality! You can start drawing a map of a new environment using this kit, along with other amazing use cases including streaming and creating IoT.

Besides the astonishing SLAM functionality, streaming and creating IoT, you can also connect CrazyPi to uArm to play chess even from the other side of the world! Connect the main board to the media board to turn it into a mini PC too!

 

All makers and developers in the era of internet needed a thinkpad, and in this new era of IoT and home robotics, you need a CrazyPi! Designed for ROS and by DIY robot makers, CrazyPi is a powerful Robot maker board with an abundance of features. With its P2M cloud services, you can connect and control CrazyPi without using a monitor, even from another country. 

Compare with the the traditional maker board robot, you can easily assemble your CrazyPi robot, without the need of installing drivers. CrazyPi also comes with Ubuntu, ROS and robotic applications pre-installed, so you can start playing with it as soon as possible! Because of the visual IoT of P2M service, CrazyPi is a superior maker board than other maker boards currently on the market.

 

 

 

 

You can put CrazyPi in an unknown, new environment and select a destination, CrazyPi will draw a map with the Crazyou 4K LIDAR sensor of CrazyPi Kit thanks to the SLAM (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) function. Building your own robot to explore the world in your way is no longer a dream, get CrazyPi today and start your own adventure! 

 

Thanks to the 4G module and our P2M service, you can watch video mapping in real time from anywhere in the world, as long as you have internet connection. We are one of the very first maker boards to implement this feature! Don't let distance stop you from getting to know the world, explore the world crazily!

 

With CrazyPi, IoT (Internet Of Things) is no longer the future, it is the present, CrazyPi makes executing IoT a breeze. Build your own security camera or monitoring system. Create an IFTTT (if this, then that) or custom code your own application to manage things like your garden and pets, babysit you kid or even do something romantic. Everyone can be a great maker, you just have to give it a little imagination! With Linux and ROS pre-installed, you can remotely control uArm (Robotic arm) to play chess with your pals, or use the camera to see what is going on the whole time even from another country, distance is nothing!

Thanks to a meteorology sensor, CrazyPi is capable of sensing temperature, moisture, air pressure, etc so you can use it for more situations. All the data are also visible on the web/app, so you can even use it for meteorological measurement!

 

 

CrazyPi Vs. Turtlebot 3

Crazy LIDAR VS. Competitors

 

 

1. ROS

CrazyPi comes with ROS pre-installed. Save your time on the complicated ROS installation and start building your CrazyPi robot immediately. Run all the ROS software directly.

2. Ubuntu

Ubuntu is an open source software operating system that runs from the desktop, to the cloud, to all your internet connected things. Thanks to a fully operational Ubuntu system, CrazyPi lets you surf the web, game, code and do all other things. Featuring 16gb storage, CrazyPi is small and portable and can fit in your pocket.  

 

Our hardware modules are magnetically connected, so assembling accessories in a second without the use of any tools. So no more complicated and annoying chords and cables, start building your own robot easily and magnetically!

 

There are a tons of options for you to connect CrazyPi and use it outdoor, via remote control and stream in real-time. You can connect CrazyPi via WI-FI, 4G, Bluetooth and even sound wave. Connect to WI-FI using sound wave, or by simply talking to your phone. Even in environments without network access, you can turn on the CrazyPi’s personal hotspot, then use your app to connect and control. After connecting to WI-FI, you can access your CrazyPi feed from the other side of the world. Since we support 4G LTE you can even use CrazyPi outdoors, allowing you to monitor or control from another country.

 

 

 

You can connect and remote control CrazyPi via our Web operating system or the APP we developed, have full control over your own robot.

Using our easy to use APP to control your CrazyPi to do whatever you want! Now available in App Store and Google Play!

And it can react to your phone's gyroscope, so simply turn your phone and the gimbal of CrazyPi will turn simultaneously!

 

 The magnetically modular design has made CrazyPi super easy to build and start your own adventure! And the driver free USD plugging-go design has further more make building your own robot a breeze!

 

 

 

The CrazyPi team was formed in 2015 by a group of robot lovers. We knew how a lot of makers would love to play around with RaspberryPi, but installing the ROS and Linux is too complicated. And making your own robots requires a lot of welding, which also takes a lot of time and effort. We thought it would be great if we can come up with something that can easily make your robot building dream come true, or even better, turn your RaspberryPi into a robot, and at the same time easily because we pre-installed the Linux and ROS and we made the parts magnetic so no more welding. So that is how CrazyPi came into being, it will be your first choice when it comes to robot building. 

We want to give out our special thanks to AAC & ACT LAB, for providing us the place and equipment we need to carry out this project. 

We want to thank uArm for the advice and the cooperation, which has made CrazyPi even better. 

Thanks Shenzhenware for featuring CrazyPi. 

Most importantly, we want to thank our backers for bringing this project to life, none of these will be possible without your love and support.

Risks and challenges

We have already selected our suppliers to make sure when we have a successful campaign, we can ensure the shipment to be fulfilled on time. We will work side by side with the factory after the campaign so we can avoid the delay of shipment!
