We present a new robotics platform that enables you to practise building an entire robot, learn about electronics and programming, as well as having fun developing and evolving it.
With PrintBot Evolution you can make a line-follower robot with two IR sensors, make it avoid or follow lights using its two light sensors, and avoid obstacles with its ultrasonic range sensor. You can also control your PrintBot Evolution with an Android smartphone via bluetooth.
The PrintBot brain is a Zum BT-328 board, a much improved Arduino-compatible board, with bluetooth, power switch and convenient connectors for servos and sensors. You can program the PrintBot evolution without code, using the drag&drop bitbloq environment, or you could use Arduino IDE if you want.
The skeleton of your PrintBot Evolution is made of printable pieces. If you have access to a 3D printer, you can modify and print them off yourself.
Get the native project in FreeCAD. Feel free to adapt it to your taste!
What's more, this Printbot has been designed so that you can evolve and transform it into any creature you like. Using the most simple materials, such as EVA foam, you can dress up your robot and give it a totally new look. We will give you some ideas in the form of templates. For example, a skin to transform it into a fantastical dragon, an awesome elephant or a stupendous shark… These are just a few ideas, the only limit is your imagination!
You will find all the parts and electronic components included in the kit:
