 +==== What can I do with RoboCORE? ====
 +
 +Our hardware was designed to:
 +
 +  * make both autonomous and remotely controlled constructions;​
 +  * control the attached motors and modules;
 +  * collect and use measurement data from the sensors;
 +  * communicate with the outside world via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
 +
 +There are many different scenarios for using RoboCORE – building telepresence robots, driving, swimming or manufacturing devices.
