New in the Maker Shed – Twitchie Robot kit


Certainly a unique take on robotic kits, the Twitchie awaits your creative ‘touch’ –

Twitchie is an open source multi-purpose robot kit. It has the capacity to frighten and scare, but also the power to love and care! It’s a regular pathos-o-matic! Grown men scream! Maternal instincts long dormant, suddenly activated! It’s a robot unlike any other, and you can make one with this kit. Cover your Twitchie any way you’d like to make it truly unique.

    but I’m having trouble seeing how it’s more than $30-$40 worth of parts. Are they really good servos?

  2. meh says:

    Guess you gotta pay off the laser cutter somehow.

    @meh – what do you mean? whose laser cutter?

    should kit makers not make kits? i don’t understand the comment.
