Vincross has launched a Kickstarter campaign for a modular robotics kit ranging from $89 for the Linux-driven, quad -A53 compute unit, called MIND Kit.

The MIND Kit aims to fill the gap between professional robotics kits and robot development kits aimed at children. Robotics kits aimed at roboticists and experienced robot hobbyists are too complex for most users, and the kits aimed at kids lack modularity, flexibility, and programming depth.

“With MIND KIT, you can not only build robot rover, tank and arm in no time, but also you will get powered to make your own robot. MIND KIT provide a lot of fantastic modules and unlimited possibilities. There’s no ceiling on what you can create. Let’s build more robots.”

The MIND Kit runs the Linux-based MIND 2.0 stack on a Cerebrum subsystem, which is available on its own in an $89 early bird or $99 standard package. Once you receive your Cerebrum, you will be able to purchase other components.

The Mind Kit’s Cerebrum unit runs MIND OS on an unnamed, quad-core, Cortex-A53 SoC clocked to 1.2GHz. MIND OS can be integrated with OpenCV, ROS and other AI libraries, so is possible to take full advantage of the built-in libraries, third party libraries and the hardware resources to seamlessly build AI & robotics applications.

More information about all the available Kit may be found at the MIND Kit Kickstarter page.
