Vorpal the Hexapod

Vorpal the hexapod robot is another great educational tool (Source: Makezine)

Vorpal is the work of Steve Pendergast. After a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2018, the Vorpal has continued to be a very unique and cooky 3D printing project for classrooms.

Vorpal is totally open-source, able to be programmed from scratch, and controlled via Bluetooth. It’s a great project for kids and adults to be introduced to robotics and coding. Check out all the resources you’ll need at the Vorpal Robotics site.

If you choose to print it yourself, you can build Vorpal for about $60, otherwise, you can buy different levels of kits from $179-$299, with $299 getting you the robot fully assembled.
