LittleBots: Buddy the Social Robot

These cute Buddy robots are social creatures (Source: LittleBots via Instructables)

It’s our last robot on the list that’s by LittleBots, but it’s a departure from their robot arms. Introducing Buddy, an adorable, simple, DIY “social” robot.

Fully 3D printed and controlled with a programmable Arduino, Buddy is meant to be an introduction to social robotics. Buddy uses only an ultrasonic sensor to “see” and interact with the world. Even though Buddy only has three points of articulation, it’s very expressive.

You can download the files to print yourself ($20) or you can order the kit ($69) from the LittleBots website.
