Makers, and hobbyists that would like to learn more about robotics maybe interested in a new Arduino robot kit that has been developed by Funnyvale based in California, called the Hackabot Nano.
The Hackabot Nano has been specifically designed to be an easy to build Arduino robot, and will come complete with its own free Android companion application if the project reaches its stretch goal of $10,000.
The Hackabot Nano Arduino robot project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. Its creators explain a little more about the Arduino Hackabot Nano robots key features :
– Very compact: about 12cm x 12cm x 5.5cm (4.7in x 4.7in x 2.2 in)
– Controller: Arduino Nano compatible. Program with standard IDE.
– Connectivity: Radio Frequency (2.4GHz), WiFi, Bluetooth, Raspberry Pi
– Robot Chassis: Fabric Shield (the main PCB) is designed to mount up to 4 motors directly
– Sensors: GPS, Gyroscope + Accelerometer, Ultrasonic Distance Sensor.
– Motor driver: capable of driving up to 4 DC or servo motors.
– DC Motors: two versions (A) high speed (B) high torque
– Power: input voltage: 5-12V; dual on-board voltage regulators to deliver 5V and 3.3V.
– Expansion: Audio jack; Screw terminals to connect 4 PWM (pulse width modulation) signals and power source; header pins to analog inputs (like sharp IR sensors)
– I2C headers: to connect other I2C devices (like magnetometer)
