Little Robot Friends (LRF) are programmable, customizable table-top robots. Users assemble their robot and use Little Robot Friend’s coding software to code for new robot behaviors. The robots are available for purchase in assembled or self-assemble kits.
Users begin using their LRF by following directions to assemble the robot’s hardware. Once assembled, users play around with the existing inputs and outputs of the robot such as blinking or singing. Once the LRF has been assembled, users plug it into the ‘Hacker Dock’ connected to their computer, and download LRF’s corresponding coding software. Users then watch instructional video tutorials on how to open-source-code their LRF using the Arduino system. Users can code their robot to sing, operate remote cars, and respond to tweets.
The ‘Do-It-Yourself Kit’ costs $49.99. Inquiries about other kits and accessories can be made on the website.
