After Makerfaire 2015 we were really impressed with how much time and effort had gone into lots of projects. Really polished and professional looking demos.
This is great, but it can also be off putting for beginners who might feel unable to get started.
So we want to answer that by developing a £5 robot that is quite bodged together.
Probably based on a shrimp kit, using steppers or dc geared motors and a CD for a base.
To keep it accessible we won’t be using any PCBs or anything laser cut.
It will draw with a pen and maybe communicate with other robots. Here’s a video of what we’ve got so far: https://plus.google.com/
