To help children learn more about robotics and electronics, a new build your own robot kit has been created, aptly named BYOR. Designed by engineer Teun van Roessel based in Eindhoven in the Netherlands the kids electronic robot kit is combined with arts and crafts to provide a versatile and user-friendly way to start building electronic systems.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the BYOR robotic kit which has this week been launched via Kickstarter and is now available from €109 to early bird backers. With worldwide shipping expected to take place during June 2019.
“The BYOR kit consists of a number of different input and output components. These components can be easily connected to each other via the Easyboard and will respond directly. For example, when a servo motor and a button are connected, the motor will respond to the position of the button. No programming necessary but very much possible! The components of the kit can be easily attached to freely available materials such as cardboard. Because of this, children are completely free in building their robot or device. It also encourages them to see the value of trash- or scrap-materials. Ideal to combine with lasercutting or 3D-printing!”
