We have created a new arduino kit. His name is Buddy. He is a DIY social robot to serve as a replacement for jibo, cozmo, or any of the other bots that are no longer available. Fully 3D printed and supported he adds much more to our series of arduino STEM robotics kits.
Buddy will be coming to Kickstarter in September.
Buddy is able to look around and map his surroundings and react to changes within them. He can be surprised and he will always have a unique reaction to changes.
The kit can be built very easily in less than an hour. It is even robust enough to take the abuse that kids can give it in a classroom. Or he can sit safely on a desk.
Buddy is an arduino social robot that is meant to get kids excited about the possibilities of robotics and technology, not just how they consume it. He is a robot kit that doesn't just teaches the physics of robotics but also the psychology and interactions of it. He will be a great addition to any STEM classroom or nerd collection.
