As Seen on Show and Tell: Bit the RoboDawg! #showandtell #robotics

Thanks Orlando for sharing this great robotic dog project with us on Show and Tell! Check out his Instructable for the project here.

So I have been thinking about creating a robot companion of some kind for a few years now and have finally gotten around to doing it. I also recruited a few friends to get in on the action as well. It is working surprisingly well for a first go at things. I have taken my robot dog to my work place on a number of occasions and have gotten a number of compliments (as well as strange looks. Lol). The project is by no means perfect (or complete), but we figured this would be a good place to share our progress and give everyone a chance to build their own. You can follow the project’s Hackaday.io page and GitHub repository as we continue to develop. Please comment with suggestions, critiques, etc. They are much appreciated.

Here we go. Bit the RoboDawg Version 1.0.

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.
