This Raspberry Pi robot created by Munich-based Ingmar Stapel is designed to autonomously make its way through a certain area and operate as a metal detector.

Aptly called the 'Discoverer,' the robot is essentially a remote controlled car that utilizes a Raspberry Pi as its internal brain. The robot can be controlled at a range of up to 350-meters and allows Stapel to explore areas with ease and at leisure.

The maker industry is showing little sign of slowing down with new products and innovations being created everyday. This Raspberry Pi robot metal detector shows the kind of creations that are being made within the consumer market to satisfy a hobby that shows potential for real-world applications.
