Ben Pirt based in the UK has created a new DIY robot kit for kids that he has named the Mirobot. The Mirobot is a wireless robot kit that’s designed to teach children about technology, programming and mathematics and has been designed for use in either the home or classroom.
The DIY robotics kit has been created and builds on a previous Kickstarter design, to be easy to build and allows the child to gain pleasure from building and seeing the robot carry out their commands.
After being programmed via a web browser, such as drawing or following a line. Watch the video below to learn more. The Mirobot project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. Its developer explains more :
“Building Mirobot is simple, but it demonstrates to children the basic mechanical concepts that make robots work. Everything locks into place nice and securely and children get the amazing feeling of having actually built their own robot.
Mirobot is a build-it-yourself WiFi robotics kit that draws. It’s designed so that children can build it themselves, along the way learning about the mechanical design (and gaining an enormous sense of achievement), and then use it to draw things whilst learning about computing and maths. It’s all open hardware and software (you can check it all out on GitHub) which means that it can be used how you want to use it.”
So if you think the Mirobot robotics kit is something your children could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Mirobot become a reality.
