The Block Bot meetup is an opportunity to come and play with Lego-compatible robotics kits.
The Block Bot kit is designed as an affordable platform for anyone, young or old, to get involved in simple robot design and construction.
With a run time of approximately 30 minutes the Block Bot kit consists of
- a 11.1volt, 450mAh LiPo battery, (weight approx 40g)
- a pre-programmed Arduino brain with power controllers and preloaded open source code base in a lego-compatible chassis (weight approx 20g)
- four motors that can be used for different things — propulsion, steering, grabbing
- a Playstation 3 style bluetooth robot remote
The Block Bot kit can be used for competitive racing, robo-battles and engineering challenges.
We'll have 10 kits and lego available, so come along and get involved.
- Participants under 16 years of age must be accompanied by a responsible adult
