Introducing Marty the Robot!

A fully programmable, customisable walking robot

Back the project on IndieGoGo

Marty's unique design reduces the cost of making a robot that can walk, turn, dance, kick a ball, and more.

Controllable from your phone, programmable over wi-fi out of the box, and easily expanded with a Raspberry Pi or Ardunio for ultimate flexibility.

Marty is the perfect robot for kids, educators and makers, to help learn about programming, electronics, mechanical design, 3D printing and robotics.

 
For Kids
  • Price of a smart toy, features of a real robot
  • Easy to build kit
  • Fun to play with, but grows with you
  • Get started by remote controlling Marty and downloading apps
  • Learn about robotics, programming, electronics, and more
For Makers
  • Unique design keeps cost down
  • All parts 3D printable
  • Community support and tutorials
  • Hackable and expandable
    • Works stand alone, or holds a Rasperry Pi, Beaglebone, Arduino...
    • Expandable hardware, electronics, and software
    • C++, Python, ROS inegration, Scratch libraries
For Educators
  • A teaching tool that won't break the bank
  • Useful for a range of lessons across many levels
  • Teach programming, mechanical design, electronics, 3D printing...
  • ... all the way to kinematics, image processing
  • Educational materials provided

3D Printable


All Marty's plastic parts are 3D printable, and we'll make the design files available

Print spare parts, and make your own modifications and add-ons. Upload and download part designs using the app store

More than a toy

Simple yet sophisticated


From running demo behaviours and remote controlling; to creating programs in Scratch and making new movements; all the way to learning kinematics, image processing, and creating and printing your own parts - Marty can span from an easy introduction to robotics to a serious platform.

Add a camera, and you can even get him to play football!
