I built a robot on a Roomba base a few months ago. My granddaughter has named him Keith.

It is driven by a RaspBerry Pi with a Wifi dongle, and a powered USB hub.

It is powered by a Powergen mobile phone charger, which also powers the hub.

It uses an Arduino as the USB interface.

The frame is similar to the Turtlebot, but is home made.

It has a PS3 Eye camera and microphone, to give it voice commands and to stream video data as it moves.

It has speakers and voice ouptut.

It carries a Maplin robot arm, and both the arm and robot can be controlled by keyboard or voice.

It can carry an Android table to telepresence applications.

I am teaching it to fetch beer.
