Hedgehog Bot is a build-it-yourself IOT (Internet-of-Things) robot kit. Designed for anyone aged 10 and above to learn about programming and building electronics.
Internet-of-Things: A network of objects or things creating a more direct connection between computers and the real world, typically over wifi.
When showing people our prototype, they compared the wire-y exterior of our bot to that of hedgehog and the name stuck.
The Hedgehog Bot has a body made of MDF and uses readily available screen, motor, wifi and microprocessor parts as well as loads of wires! This results in a really low cost kit.
Scott and Joe - graduate electronic engineers from the University of Bristol. We have a passion for technology and education and we hope this kit brings those things together.
