BreadBug the Adaptable Educational Robot - Kickstarter

BreadBug the Adaptable Educational Robot - Kickstarter

 This robot kit got its start about 2 years ago as a way to provide a very low cost introduction to robotics. Although the circuit that brings this little bug to life has been in circulation for many years, at that time, we struggled to find a physical design that was easy to mass produce and assemble.
Why Make The BreadBug?

The answer to that question is simple…fun! BreadBug is just plain fun to build and to experiment with. You learn best through experimentation. The built-in breadboard allows you to reconfigure it for many different behaviors. You can even plug in a small microcontroller for added functionality. There are many robotics kits out there, but we found that it was hard to get a good quality kit for under $20. Team learning with one kit per 4 to 5 students is okay, but with the BreadBug, students are able to get a one-on-one learning experience that is otherwise hard to get.

How Does BreadBug Work?

The BreadBug has been designed so that you can rearranged the wiring on the breadboard which allows the student to experiment with different "behaviors" of the BreadBug. It is also possible to add a variety of sensors and a low power microcontroller to get even more complex activity.  Curriculum is in development to provide step by step instruction on carrying out experiments with the BreadBug.

What You Get

Body is laser cut baltic birch.  Runs on 2 AAA batteries.  Overall dimmensions are "3 x 3" x 1.75", not counting antennae.  Everything you need to put it together is included in the kit.  The only tool you need to put it together is a phillips screwdriver which is also included.

The kit includes:
  (1) laser cut body plate
  (2) DC motors with thrust bearings and rubber feet
  (1) 3D printed motor mount
  (1) 170 point breadboard
  (2) antennae switches with feelers attached
  (1) 2xAAA battery holder
  (1) power switch
  (1) nylon "tail" screw set
  -All necessary screws and doublesided tape
  -#1 screwdriver -Assembly Pamphlet
  -All wiring is pre-soldered so all you have to do is plug into the breadboard
