In the Maker Shed: Twitchie Robot Kit on sale

Make your bots and plushies come to life! The Twitchie Robot Kit is an amazingly life-like animated armature that’s Arduino-powered and comes pre-programmed, making it an excellent kit for beginners in robotics. No programming required! You can download and modify the code if you want, and it’s pretty light on soldering, too. We recommend Twitchie for young makers (both boys and girls) interested in robotics or in bringing plush toys to life. For a limited time, Twitchie is $20 off the regular price!

    Hey Becky… nice Twitchie!

    I kind of like it when it just flails about without your hand on it. It has a great personality. :)

    I think you’ve now inspired me to make one from some scrap parts, extra servos and a micro controller I have lying about. ~~~~~

    I assume the twitchie has slip gears on the servos? I’d hate to see good servos go bad.
