Those of you looking to learn a little more about robotics and electronics in general may be interested in a new open source robotic kit called Nybble. Which allows you to build the “world’s cutest open source robotic kitten”. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the robotic kit which can be easily programmed and is now available to back via Indiegogo with early bird pledges available from $200.
The campaign has already raised over $60,000 with still 23 days remaining and will definitely make the jump into production. If all progresses smoothly worldwide deliveries expected to take place sometime around April 2019. Nybble’s motion is driven by an Arduino compatible micro-controller. It stores instinctive “muscle memory” to move around.
“Nybble is the lightest and fastest robotic cat that really walks. Built on an open source platform, Nybble has endless possibilities in the way you can “teach” tricks, behaviors, and CAT-itude as you program it and help it grow. You can even mount a Raspberry Pi to help Nybble think! Nybble is also the first product of OpenCat, the most respected DIY project on Hackster.io. Check out how Nybble would grow up to, and make friends by communicating with other Nybble owners.”
