Description: Have some fun coding your very own AI robot with TJBot, a do-it-yourself template to learn, experiment, and explore AI with IBM Watson. The project consists of open-source step-by-step recipes, or coding instructions, designed for a Raspberry PI to help you connect your TJBot to Watson developer services.

Born at IBM Research as an experiment to develop best practices in the design and implementation of AI and cognitive objects, TJBot is an example of ‘embodied cognition’ – the idea of embedding artificial intelligence into objects in our everyday lives. Want to have a conversation with TJBot, teach TJBot to dance, or tell a joke? You can use featured TJBot recipes to teach your own TJBot these skills or create your own new recipes and share them with the world.

In this version of the TJBot Kit, we include a laser-cut template to form the body of the Bot, LEDs, a microphone, the Raspberry Pi, SD Card, and wires to connect everything together.

Important: The TJBot is currently unavailable to ship on new orders. If you already have an order for one with us, we will be shipping those out soon.

  • TJBot Laser Cut Cardboard
  • Raspberry Pi Model 3
  • 16GB NOOBS Card
  • USB Microphone
  • Speaker
  • Servo

  • Is it possible to link the individual items in the kit to the actual products? I am 3d printing the case for this, so i don’t need the cardboard, but i would like to purchase all the other parts. It is just hard to do that with descriptions like “speaker” and “servo”. If you could link to the actual products that would be great!

    • Hi Dasien -

      Here’s a wishlist of parts that are used in the kit without the microphone and without the cardboard pieces. I did swap out the Micro USB Cable for a Raspberry Pi 5.25V Wall Adapter Power Supply. And, until we’re able to fully secure a supply on the microphone, it’s available on here on Amazon.

  • That’s not what “embodied cognition” means… what you’re describing is “ubiquitous computing”.
