A special robot for the Belgrade workshop #Robotics @Hackaday @deshipu

Fluffbug is a four-legged walking robot that fits on your desk, can be programmed with an USB cable without installing any special software on your computer, can be built on a budget of less than $30, and that can be easily expanded or modified, to try out new ideas.

We will be building these at the Hackaday Belgrade workshop. There is also a large Jolly Wrencher logo on the PCB.

See the project on Hackaday.io and source on GitHub.

  1. This is not the robot we are going to be building in Berlin, it’s a robot that we have built seven years ago in 2016 in Belgrade. The new robot in Berlin is a bit different, you can see the project page at https://hackaday.io/project/180025-fluffbug and the github repository is at https://github.com/deshipu/fluffbug — you can read about the workshop and buy the tickets for it from https://hackaday.com/2023/03/14/hackaday-berlin-the-badge-workshops-and-lightning-talks/

    I would greatly appreciate either fixing this article, or deleting it, so that people are not surprised when we build a different robot than they thought they are going to build. Thank you.
