Product Description

Hello, Friend of RoboBrrd!

RoboBrrd is a robotic bird character with an entertaining personality that you can assemble yourself!

It can wave its wings, blink its eyes in a rainbow of colours, and open and close its beak.

If you have ever been looking for a robotic pet that you can make your own, or even build your very first robot- RoboBrrd is the place to start!

What will I learn?

When making RoboBrrd, you will learn a lot of things in a fun and hands-on way.

Mechanical: Assembling the pieces, seeing how the wings move, learning about the beak mechanism

Electronics: Soldering the components to the boards, wiring the various boards together, plugging in the sensors and servos

Programming: Using the RoboBrrd library, calibrating the servos

Design: Observing the 3D printed interlocking pieces, the slider tray for the electronics

Our instructions and documentation are there as a guide. Plus, if you ever get stuck you can ask on the forums.

What can it do after?

When you have completed assembling RoboBrrd, you can make it do whatever you want. It is up to you to hack it and modify it into your own fun experience!

If you are looking for some ideas, check out the Learn and Community pages.

We would really enjoy seeing what you are working on, so please tweet us a photo!

I’ve never built a robot before! Can I do this?!

Have you ever imagined a creature so cool, that you really wish it could become a reality? Like a dragon with fairy wings, or an ostritch with five heads.

By learning more about robotics, and with a lot of practice, you will eventually be able to make a form of these creatures into reality.

RoboBrrd is a great place to begin on this journey!

What other supplies will I need?

• FTDI cable – this is for programming the brain! Other Arduino derivatives sometimes need this cable as well.

(Adafruit, Sparkfun, RobotShop)

• Wire – you need wire to go between the brain and some of the breakout boards. Also it’s generally a good idea to have wire.

(Adafruit, Sparkfun, RobotShop)

Other:
• Soldering iron & solder
• Hot glue gun & glue sticks
• Hand Tools: Wire cutters & strippers, pliers, scissors
• About 1 or 2 weekends of time
• Patience and enthusiasm
