In today's world technology is progressing faster than the blink of an eye. Our technology is used make our lives, our jobs, everything faster, cheaper, and more efficient. And when it comes to learning technology there is no age limit. Kids can be learning it and certainly adults should be learning it. And it can't get much easier.
When you were a child didn't weren't you a fan of robots? Something that thinks and moves that you built? Those actually exist. There are a number arduino kits and general robot kits that you can build, program and modify. So if you are a fan of robots its never too late to build your own. And here are the "Top10 Arduino Robot For Adults" that we think you will enjoy the most. And yes, a couple of our kits are on the list. Because we do a good job.
Makeblock Ultimate Robot Kit - $349
The is the fully stocked MackeBlock Kit. Hence the name ultimate. This robot kit has everything that you need to make 10 robots from the single kit. If you are not good at soldering that is alright. This kit doesn't need any soldering. It also comes with bluetooth and an smart device app so you can control your creations with your phone.
If you are a beginner tutorials are available to get started.
The LittleArm Big is a 3D Printed robotics kit. With 6 joints and controlled by the arduino it is both fun to build and to program. You can use the accompanying apps to teach it motions to repeat over and over. Or you can use any arduino tool to program reactions and add sensors.
The LittleArm big is really a good surrogate for real life robots. With many similar capabilities this kit is really just a scaled down version of the Giant robot arms you see in Tesla Car Factories. Practicing on this robot could get you ready for working with the big boys someday. Or just have fun putting sugar in your coffee.
The Bioloid STEM Kit is a robot kit with 7 example robots. But what really sets this STEM kit apart from other educational kits is the fantastic curriculum guide. These guides are far from a simple assembly manual - the 2 workbooks represent 21 weeks of comprehensive educational training. The STEM kit breaks each chapter into three phases: the Basic Phase, the Application Phase, and the Practical Phase.
While this kit is targets at classrooms, adults can have a lot of fun building the kits also.
The Crawling Quadruped Robot Kit for arduino included everything you need to a build a walking quadruped robot and control it via wireless remote control.
The four legs of this mobile robot each have 3 joints driven by servos. You may use sample sketches to control and upgrade the robot. This a small-type arduino project and can be put together relatively quickly. And then you can easily add more code or 3D print covers for the robot as you go along.
Alophabot2 Arduino Robot - $83
A very condensed arduino robot this kit has everything you need already on the robot. While there is not a lot to built the Alphabot offers a whole lot to program. With many many sensors to choose from and nice compact setup the Alphabot is a great kit for more advanced users to get cheaper into robotics. It is certainly an advanced robot kit, which makes it great for adults.
The Littlebot Budget is a kit that is the simplest of all. Meant for beginners who just want to start learning arduino this kit is the basics. The kit starts with a main arduino board and a basic distance sensor for his eyes. Then he drives around bouncing off the walls or you can control him with a simple Android app. From there you can add on line following sensors and all all sorts of 3D printed accessories. He really is an expandable robot. and with a lot of tutorials on Youtube you can find help for all of those sensors.
