Do you still remember the Barobo mobot, a competent modular robot system with two body joints and two rotating faceplates. Barobo, Inc., manufacturer of Barobo mobot, announced today the launch of the Mobot-A robot kit, a 3D printed robot.
Barobo is a spin-off of technology developed at the University of California, aiming to make robotics more affordable, adaptable for education and industrial applications.
“As 3D printers become more and more common place in the classroom there’s a need for engaging projects and curriculum to tie this powerful tool into science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects,” said Graham Ryland, President and Co-founder of Barobo.
All the 3D printable plastic parts, accessories, assembly instructions, and curriculum for the Mobot-A will be available to download from the company’s website.
