Show and Tell: DuinoBots – 3D Printed Battle Bots #Feather
duinobots.com is developing 3D printed battle bots. You print or pick your own shells and use their app to take on all comers.
DuinoBots are modular, 3D-printed robots bent on destruction! Equipped with working weapons and hit sensors, these battling bots connect to your smartphone via the DuinoBots app, where they are at your command!
Built on Arduino, it’s an open source project dedicated to making engineering and robotics fun.
Buy a kit from our store or hack one together yourself. You can find the code, design files, and everything else you need to build your own bot over in the docs.
It appears their bots use parts – would like to see more about that.
See more information on their site and pictures & video on Google Photos. Building bots? Let us know in the comments!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
