Anyone who is interested in building working robots and coding using Arduino might be interested in a new initiative called Maker Club which has been created teach the electronics, programming and CAD design required to create 3D printed robotic projects.
Maker Club is a new start-up and is currently looking for funding over on the Indiegogo crowdfunding website to raise £10,000 to help create its first range of robotic learning kits.
The team over at Maker Club has also developed a companion Android and iOS application that you can use to control and manoeuvre your robotic creation. The team explain a little more:
“Every project is remote controlled using our Arduino-based bluetooth chip, the MakerConnect, and our iOS and Android apps. All the parts for the robots are interchangeable, like Lego, so once you’ve got the hang of things, there’s almost nothing you can’t invent! There’s no soldering and no prior knowledge required, we’ll guide you every step of the way…
It’s a basic microcontroller and companion App that allow the wireless control of potentially any Arduino based project over Bluetooth LE (Low energy). Once powered up, it seamlessly connects to the MakerConnect smartphone app and you’re ready to go! Our chip and Arduino library are geared up for robotic control, like hexapods, RC cars and robotic arms, but why stop there? Control your household lights, add sensors and hack your home – the possibilities are limitless! “
For more information on the new Maker Club and it new robotic kits jump over to the Indiegogo website via the link below for details and to pledge for a robotic kit starting at just £39.
