GridBots is an educational modular toy created for kids to explore how they can interact with robotics.
I approached this project wanting to simplify how complex chain reactions can be introduced to kids and in the process build a system that would spark creativity using electronics.
Each robot is brought to life by an electronic hub that holds a small servo motor, an Arduino, and a LiPo battery. The Arduino is programmed to respond to changes in light or motion from the sensors in each circuit.
Throughout the set, color is used to guide the order that the pieces are assembled. This project allowed me to explore how to craft a meaningful experience for a younger audience as well as shifting my thinking towards creating multi-disciplinary design projects.
