The Beatty Family Builds Bots Together

Robert Beatty sent us these wonderful pictures of his daughters, “Lunamoth” and “Julajay,” building robots. His “maker girls,” as he calls them, have been…

…involved in the designing, soldering, electronics, metal fabrication, programming, and naming of the robots, and testing, with Dad guiding the way. We really enjoy it.

Our two most recent robots are a Mars Rover, complete with a NASA-style rocker-bogie suspension system, and a mechatronic tank with mecanum wheels. We’ve also built quad rotors, crawlers, and others. Be sure to watch the Mars Rover and Mechatronic Tank videos.
