Some kids want to start lemonade stands, some want to sell eggs, others are a little more interested in the technicalities of the world. If you want to give your kids a STEM education while having a lot of fun, why not bring a robot dog into the family? Petoi Bittle is the palm-sized robotic dog that is suitable for ages 14+ to build themselves and children of all ages to enjoy under adult supervision.
bittel is a open source bionic robot dog which was successfully funded on Kickstarter. With the basic kit, you can assemble the puzzle-like frame with everything included and download demo codes on GitHub to let Bittle make basic movements on four legs. With the STEM and robotics kit, you can take it further by learning how to code, modify, and program Bittle to perform amazing tricks. Legged motion gives Bittle more freedom to navigate unstructured terrains and lets you practice coding robotic gaits, locomotion and kinematics behavior. You can control Bittle with the Bluetooth remote or with the Petoi mobile/desktop apps.
Bittle is an open platform for merging gadgets from multiple creators into one organic system, allowing you to go way beyond the basics. It uses a custom Arduino board that coordinates all instinctive and advanced movements and is expandable with artificial intelligence capabilities and more by mounting a Raspberry Pi or other AI chips via wired or wireless connections. It’s highly programmable with Scratch, C++ or Python coding, and the Li-ion battery pack supports about an hour of continuous running.
