Welcome to CurieBot, your own mobile, customizable, and adorable, 32-bit, Bluetooth-enabled driving robot!
Based upon our popular three-layer round robot platform, CurieBot brings some special sauce to the table -- delicious Arduino 101 sauce, that is! This powerful board comes in a familiar Arduino form factor, so you can use many of your favorite shields, such as the included Adafruit MotorShield v2. It's an excellent introduction to our wide world of robotics!
CurieBot is designed to introduce you to the joys of making with electronics. We decided to come up with a fun pack of parts that:
Instead of the typical processor, this one is packing an Intel Curie 32-bit chip, which enables some very powerful on-board processing. The Arduino 101 also has a 6-axis accelerometer/gyro, and that's not all -- it's got Bluetooth LE built directly onto the board, which enables direct control of CurieBot right from your Bluetooth-capable phone or tablet! It's quite similar to our AdaBox002 robot, but with an Arduino driving it instead of a Feather.
Build and control your robot right away, and then begin exploring all of the possibilities for modifications and expansion with this powerful new platform.
Some soldering required! Use any iOS or Android phone with our free Bluefruit Connect app to control your robot friend after it's been built.
