Project Description

This project deals with the development of 3D-printed models, electronics and software for innovative education in robotics, sufficiently cheap to allow the schools (technical or vocational, as well as re-qualification courses or hobby clubs) to afford them for all their students in the class. Each and every student might make/repair/improve his/her own robots from a scratch and naturally “learn-by-making” multiple subjects from CAD modeling and 3D printing to electronics assembly to coding on multiple platforms. The models developed so far include the universal control system for a wide range of 3D-printed robotic manipulators, and a robotic model of a human hand, controlled wireless via a sensory glove and expandable with future advanced modules (muscle control, computer vision etc).
