Hack-E-Bot – As Seen on Show & Tell!

Pasted Image 5 4 14 11 23 PM

Richard Albritton shared a link to the latest state of his Hack-E-Bot website — for the robot he shared on Show & Tell last week!

This is the information page for the Hack-E-Bot, a low price open source robot to encourage children to learn about engineering, electronics, and programming.

The goals for this project are to make a robot that should be;

  • Easy to assemble without the use of many tools or glue.
  • Easy to upgrade and encourage hacking.
  • Based on an easy to program chip-set, like Arduino.
  • Fully constructed for under $40.

Right now I am looking to get educators involved to help turn this website into an educational portal for children interested in engineering and robotics.

This is still a work in progress, but this page should provide enough basic information to get you started with the Hack-E-Bot.
