Building electronics Arduino projects is always fun but building your very own balancing robot sound like even more fun. Socially Shaped has created a new Educational Robotic Platform called Roby that uses 3D printed parts to help youngsters build their very own Robot with ease.
The project has been designed to provide children with first hand experience in programming, robotics, and 3D design, watch the video below to learn more.
“We are delighted to introduce you to Roby. Roby is a 3D printed robot kit that teaches you programming, robotics and 3D design. Roby can balance and drive on two wheels and has two arms to stand up if it falls. Roby can also speed on four wheels like a racing car or add tracks for off-road fun. Roby is not just an entertaining robot, it’s a robotic learning platform. When you build Roby you will have an opportunity to learn in a fun and engaging way:
• How to build robots.
• Programing Scratch or language of your choice.
• The Arduino platform.
• The Raspberry Pi computer.
• Basic skills in Linux-based operating system.
• WiFi and Bluetooth communication.
• How to use sensors, stepper motors, and other electronics.
• How to leverage 3D printing to make your own design.
No matter what age, you will have fun building Roby yourself or with your entire family using our step by step guide.”
Roby is currently on Kickstarter looking to raise $25,000 in funding to make the jump into manufacture, follow the link below for more details.
