With the Holidays just around the corner its time to find the perfect gift for the STEM builder in your home. These 3D printed arduino robotics kits teach programming, problem-solving, and are just fun to build and expand.
The LittleBot Budget is a simple and affordable introductory arduino robotics kit. It has 2 versions, the Basic and Plus. The basic is a simple arduino programming platform. The Plus includes a gripper and bluetooth so that it can be controlled with Android apps.
The Budget is also a great kit to expand using your 3D printer. Many expansions can be downloaded for free from Thingiverse.
The top-selling robotics kit in the Littlebots family, the 2C has 4 actuated joints. Using the bluetooth app or by programming it from scratch the LittleArm can be trained to pick up pens, draw, or put a marshmallow in your hot chocolate. This arduino robotics kit is also very simple to build for beginners but still interesting and capable enough for more advanced users.
A Large 6DOF robotic arm Kit. The LittleArm Big is an advanced robotics kit. It is designed for high-schoolers and college students. The arm can be used to make functional assembly-lines and do real work. It can be programmed from scratch using Arduino Tools or it can be trained using the Android or Windows software.
This robotics kit is for the builder that wants to try something different. Designed after the first creatures to crawl out of the ocean, this arduino robotics kit is a great introduction to walking robots without being too intimidating.
This simple robotic boat is a great addition to any robot hobbyists collection. Fully programmable with arduino tools or controllable with the Bluetooth app. Simple and quick to build and easy to disassemble makes this arduino kit ideal for the classroom as well.
