Make Your Own RoboBrrd!

Yay! RobotGrrl has written up an awesome instructable detailing the process of making your very own RoboBrrd robot! She writes:

RoboBrrd is an robot / animatronic character whose purpose morphs to mirror that of the virtual world. It is designed to be used as a tangible real world interface to virtual world learning applications. As a standalone robot, RoboBrrd is an entertaining platform that can be used to learn about robotics, Arduino, circuits, and programming.

This Instructable will guide you through creating a RoboBrrd- all the way from the circuits to programming to the felt decorations. We will also include reasoning behind our design choices to further enlighten the Instructable.

This is a great robot project for kids and parents to build together — it’s low-cost and doesn’t require any special tools. Having seen it in person, I can also attest to how charming it is. 🙂

You can also check out this mini-interview I did with RobotGrrl at the Open Hardware Summit, in which she talks about Learning Pet, a smaller version of RoboBrrd:

Awesome work, RobotGrrl!

  1. Thanks johngineer! And thanks Adafruit for the servos that make RoboBrrd work! 😀 Building these is a lot of fun. Going to make them mesh together eventually 🙂 Hopefully other people start to make them now too.
