The Twitchie Kit from the Maker Shed has been around for a while for a good reason; It’s really cool! The amazing life-like motion generated by the three Arduino powered servos brings an eerie realism to your bots, plushies, and animatronics. Since this kit is light on soldering and does not require programming, we frequently recommend it to young makers and beginners in robotics. Of course, seasoned makers can easily modify the kit and write their own code to do some astonishing things with Twitchie, like make cuddly scorpions! HINT: Want to save $10 on Twitchie?

Maker Shed

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for ‘projects in a box,’ otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .

    Great video, great product, and great project. But, please, equalize the audio levels. Turned it up to hear the voices, turned it down when credits blared, turned it up to hear the voices, turned it down when the music kicked in.

      This is one of my older videos, I’ve gotten much better at audio editing since then! Thanks for bearing with it.

        No problem, I was just trying to watch it surreptitiously at work :-)
