WHAT IS THE Scratch Duino
ScratchDuino is a comprehensive and easy-to-use robot kit in all aspects:
Modular and customizable
Easy assembly using magnetic-mount parts
ScratchDuino collects information on multiple channels simultaneously allowing to build complex solutions for various tasks
Reliable / troubleproof
Open Source (Scratch+Arduino)
Easy programmable (1 hour workshop is enough to start programming for 7 years kid)
Scratch Duino is ready out of the box to collect data and process it according to a piece of code you design with Scratch.
The goal is to raise $105,000 by October 24, 2014, and to start the serial production of ScratchDuino robots construction kits in Finland.
DETAILS, DETAILS, DETAILS
Scratch Duino is an educational open source robot-designing kit. It is a complete solution, which combines both hardware and software in a single extendable setup. The hardware part is modular and easy to assemble.
Scratch Duino is reliable and designed to work under tough conditions: each sensor is protected by its individual plastic shield that can be mounted onto the motorized platform in a foolproof way. You can easily build a robot from scratch just combining the motorized platform and different types of sensors.
