TipToe Introducing TipToe, a walking insectoid robot with iPhone App control. TipToe is a new robot being developed by XYZbot. TipToe has 6 legs, LED eyes with changeable color (RGB LEDs). The robot comes as a kit of parts which you assemble in about 30 minutes. Then download a free iPhone app, switch TipToe on and start walking. Forward, Backward and Turn motions are possible. Add on modules allow you to upgrade TipToe to add a speaker to have him beep sounds, or add a sonar sensor or temperature sensor for ranging.

TipToe can be controlled immediately using the iPhone app, but advanced users can reprogram for their own behaviors, including autonomous action.

TipToe is based on the RFduino, a bluetooth enabled Arduino compatible module. So reprogramming is easy using the Arduino interface along provided with example code.

TipToe debuted at the Denver MiniMakerFaire on May 3rd and 4th at the National Western Complex. Watch a quick clip from that event.

TipToe's retail price starts at $89.00 and is offered right now on Kickstarter.

Fritz is an animatronic puppet that is controlled by an Arduino microcontroller. Fritz was created to provide an inexpensive introduction into robotics that is both entertaining, creative and educational. With an open source directive, Fritz is accompanied by a PC application to provide you with an easy to use interface in customizing and interacting with the project mechanics. Fritz
RBmG The RBmG (Rubber Band Machine Gun) is a fully automatic, rapid fire gun that shoots rubber bands like nobody's business. Press the trigger and a battery powered electric motor operates to fire ammo continuously while you hold the trigger. Finally, here's your chance to "fire your gun in the air while shouting 'Arrhhhhhh'."

The RBmG ships as a kit of laser cut wood parts that you can assemble in about 30 minutes. Tools required are screwdrivers and pliers. Not only is it fun to fire rubber bands in full rock and roll mode, the kit is a great opportunity for education, hidden in a fun form. Learn about electric motors, and simple machines, then blast some soda cans into oblivion.
XYZbot specializes in interactive devices that appeal to a wide audience interested in education, modification, entertainment, and creative uses of technology. Both of our products, Fritz and the RBmG (Rubber Band Machine Gun) were successfully funded on Kickstarter.
