By Noel Randewich and Alexei Oreskovic RANCHO PALOS VERDE California (Reuters) – Intel Corp introduced a walking, talking robot on Wednesday made from 3D-printed parts that will be available to consumers later this year, if they are willing to assemble it with a kit that costs around $1,600. The companys Chief Executive Brian Krzanich was accompanied by Jimmy on stage at the Code Conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. Intel describes Jimmy as a research robot, but the company intends to make 3D-printable plans available without charge for a slightly less advanced version, and partners will sell components that cannot be 3D-printed, such as motors and an Intel Edison processor, in kits.
