Crowdfunding campaign kicks off for Marty the Robot

Remember the little blue robot from the 2016 Edinburgh Mini Maker Faire poster?

MMFposter-500w

Marty wowed audiences at the Faire with demonstrations of his ability to dance, walk and even play football. He is a low cost, fully programmable and customisable walking robot, created by Edinburgh University PhD graduate Alexander Enoch and the company he founded, Robotical.

The company has now launched a crowdfunding campaign, aiming to create hundreds of Martys to inspire future generations of programmers and engineers. The robots are designed be used by kids, educators and makers, to help people learn about programming, electronics, mechanical design, 3D printing and robotics.

Find out more about Marty and the campaign on Robotical’s website.
