TiddlyBot gives Raspberry Pi robot powers

July 4, 2014

The TiddlyBot, which just launched on Kickstarter, has been developed to help young people have fun and learn about robotics and programming. After running a Code Club and workshops using Raspberry Pi I realised that robotics can be a great way to teach and learn programming and other useful skills.

The TiddlyBot can follow lines as well as draw lines both freestyle and programmatically. When used in a group they can be used for educational games as well as colorful artistic creations.

A young team of undergraduates, we’ve developed the robot itself, and also software that can remotely control and program a TiddlyBot from any smartphone/tablet or other internet-enabled computer.

The blockly interface can be used to help teach some of the fundamentals of programming. Tiddles also supports the learning of  Python and Javascript.

To realise the project we’ve launched TiddlyBot on Kickstarter and now need backing to bring TiddlyBot from the prototypes into peoples homes and classrooms. Please discover the project on Kickstarter.
