CellRobot – first smart modular robot

CellRobot – first smart modular robot

A very interesting project hit Kickstarter couple of days ago. Its CellRobot – first modular robot which can become accessible to everyone, also non – specialists.

CellRobot is a design created to be functional, educational, entertaining and fun. Each CellRobot contains the Heart (main unit with charge port, screen, sound hole, connector, lock and indicator light), Cell (additional part with a servo motor, a sensor and an independent MCU (Microprogrammed Control Unit) which can be connected to the Heart and (supplemental) X-Cell which act as add-ons to normal cells, allowing the robot to evolve and accomplish any task with the invention of new X-CELLs. The designers want to make an open CellRobot platform, which allows users to create X-CELLs.

CellRobot is going to be controlled by special smartfon or tablet app by Bluetooth.
As the team of creators say in Kickstarter ads:

We are trying to make the control mode of CellRobot to be as simple as possible so that customers of all ages can build and control their own robots. Everyone can share their ideas and be inspired by others’ creations. We hope that CellRobot can offer a new robot every day through the contributions from users. Every day, you’ll have a new robot to make or try out.

If the project will succeed, first CellRobot will be shipped in December 2015. You can still back that project!
