Kickstarter Alert: Linkbot is an Easy-to-use Modular Wireless Robot

Great modular robot project that needs just a bit of a bump in its last few days on Kickstarter:

  • Atmel AVR Microcontroller >> Compatible with Arduino so you can re-flash with your own firmware using the on-board bootloader
  • ZigBee-Capable Radio >> Communicate wirelessly with an 802.15.4-compliant radio, create mesh networks, control and monitor remotely
  • Multi-Color (RGB) LED >> Select from a full spectrum of colors
  • 3-Axis Accelerometer >> Detect free-falls, bumps, tilt angles
  • Buzzer >> Play notes or complete tunes, give audio responses to inputs
  • RJ11 (6P4C) Expansion Connector >> Use a standard phone cable to connect our Bluetooth/breakout boards or your own electronics to your Linkbot’s power and I2C bus
  • 3x Buttons – Easily control Linkbot modes and functions or write custom functions for button presses
  • Micro-USB Connector >> Connect to a computer or charger with a standard Micro-USB cable
  • Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery >> Run your Linkbot for over 3 hours for most applications before having to charge
  • High Torque:Weight-ratio Motors >> Light-but-strong motors produce up to 100oz-in of torque
  • Absolute Encoding >> Precisely control and measure speeds and angles down to 0.5 degrees
  • BaroboLink Software >> Graphical interface lets you run programs, actuate motors and read sensors on your computer
  • Polycarbonate Housing >> Super-durable, drop-tested from second-story building (not recommended) so it can handle your demanding projects
  • SnapConnector Mounting Surfaces >> Quickly connect and remove wheels, connecting plates, grabbers, even multiple Linkbots; or connect your own accessories with standard screws
