New Make: SpinBot Kit in the Maker Shed


Have you been looking for a great gift idea for an aspiring young maker? Have a look at the new Make: SpinBot Kit from the Maker Shed. This kit lets them create a simple, vibrating “robot” that makes amazing art. The kit was designed with ease of use and creativity in mind, so even the most novice maker can build it. The bot’s frame is held together using colorful zip-ties or rubber bands (plenty of both included) to encourage artistic expression. Just attach the drawing implements of your choice, add the vibrating motor and batteries, and you’re off and running.

The SpinBot Kit is the brainchild of Christopher Myers and Anne Mayoral who form ArtBot Toys, a company founded with the goal of connecting kids and the STEM fields at an early age. They’ve attended multiple Maker Faires where their SpinBots never fail to draw a crowd. We at the Maker Shed thank them for letting us bring this kit to you.

I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I'm a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
