Marty is a fully programmable robot for kids, WiFi enabled walking robot for kids, makers, educators, and for anybody who just wants a cute but very real robot.
Marty makes learning about programming, electronics, and mechanical engineering a fun, challenging and engaging process. Marty is designed to be customisable with 3D printed parts, and is also completely upgradeable. Marty is even compatible with single board computers like the Raspberry Pi!
Marty has a unique leg design, which makes him easier to use than a traditional walking robot and prolongs battery life. Marty can walk, turn, dance, kick a ball, and - of course - bust out some funky dance moves!
Marty’s legs are a bit different to a traditional walking robot. Each leg has three motors: one for forwards and backwards, one for side to side, and one for turning.
Marty is built to hold a full size Raspberry Pi (a little credit card sized computer), so while it’s not required to have one, you can add one and then you have a walking quad-core computer!
Marty robot for kids can be controlled remotely over WiFi, but you can also program him in a variety of programming languages including Python and C++
