Mobot makes robot construction easy and inexpensive

If you are the person who likes to build robots of your own, then you need to keep an eye on this article. A company called Barobo, Inc has developed a robotic kit known as Mobot, which can certainly make your robot construction easy and inexpensive.

Mobot is an educational robot that develops student education in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). This technique will also make every student to learn how to program robots and work collectively.

Mobot has rugged design with four degrees of freedom, including two rotating faceplates and body joints. It weighs only 18 oz. Every single Mobot has six mounting surfaces for connecting it with other modules using fast release snap connector. Each joint is capable of traveling at 120 deg/sec speed and 100 oz-in torque.

Mobot is incorporated with software that helps the robot to protect it from any sort of risky movements. As a result, there will be no problem to handle the robots while it is on the move. Moreover, it equally protects the users too.

Barobo’s Mobot can support several computer operating systems like Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Mac OS X. A Graphical User Interface RobotController can be useful for programming the robot. In addition, C / C++ interpreter Ch will help the user to perform their own programming for controlling the robot process and motion.

The two major advantages of Mobot are that it is fully programmable and 100 percentage wireless. By attaching several modules together, the user can develop some astonishing robotic forms like snake, humanoid, dog, 4 x 4 trucks, and so on. It just requires a computer with Bluetooth connection for controlling the robot. Moreover, it is powered by two rechargeable batteries (9 volts), which can provide up to two hours of battery life.

Generally, robots with these facilities will definitely cost over 1000 dollars. However, Mobot is currently available for a pre-order with a basic price of $270 only.
