Welcome

We work to inspire the next generation of technology leaders. Regardless of what students grow up to become, it is important that they have a solid foundation in technology to thrive in our modern world.

 

The Pi-Bot is a uniquely designed (and affordable!) complete robot kit for anyone interested in building and programming robots! This Arduino robot is the ultimate multi-disciplinary engineering education tool of our day. We have developed the perfect hands-on learning platform for both students and professional engineers to learn the hardware and software of robotics. The Pi-Bot is controlled by an Arduino-compatible board and gets its name from its unique chassis shape - a pi.

The Technical Alphabet introduces student to technology literacy from the time they start reading. Reading starts with the ABCs and so should technology education!

The Pi-Bot Project

Our team has spent years testing all of the leading robotics kits on the market today. Although many have impressive features, they are either too complicated or overly simplistic... and always much too expensive. Today, a typical Arduino based robot usually costs over $150. Too often we spent money on kits that could not do much or were too costly to be practical. Not to mention, many of these kits used proprietary components that limited the scope of real-world usage.

We wanted to change this.

We engineered the Pi-Bot from the ground up through several design cycles to optimize function while staying affordable. We continue to work with students to make our designs appealing, and work with experts in the area of robotics to improve our designs.

We field tested our Pi-Bots with a small group of high school and college students. The response has been remarkable. This is the kit we wish we had growing up! 

Pi-Bot is unique:

  • Modular platform for interchangeable sensors
  • Standardized Arduino C programming
  • Novel chassis design minimizes weight while maintaining strength
  • Fully accessible microprocessor for easy connections
  • Slide in battery pack
  • Additional microprocessors can be used simply replacing the support plate
  • Develops practical knowledge by using real electronic components
  • All for a low cost!

Our laser-cut chassis ensures high precision and durability. The unique "Pi" shape is optimized to minimize weight with high strength.

We give you the flexibility to design your own projects with included line following and ultrasonic distance sensors. The modular chassis allows sensors to be moved and positioned for your convenience. No soldering is needed to fully construct your Pi-Bot!

We are currently developing an assortment of new sensors and motors for even more capabilities in the future. The Pi-Bot kit is flexible and can be used for years.
