Hack-E-Bot – As Seen on Show & Tell!
Richard Albritton shared a link to the latest state of his
Hack-E-Bot website — for the robot he shared on Show & Tell last week!
This is the information page for the Hack-E-Bot, a low price open source robot to encourage children to learn about engineering, electronics, and programming.
The goals for this project are to make a robot that should be;
Easy to assemble without the use of many tools or glue.
Easy to upgrade and encourage hacking.
Based on an easy to program chip-set, like Arduino.
Fully constructed for under $40.
Right now I am looking to get educators involved to help turn this website into an educational portal for children interested in engineering and robotics.
This is still a work in progress, but this page should provide enough basic information to get you started with the Hack-E-Bot.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s
CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
