If you have a 3D Printer then you can build your own Marty - a Kid, Maker & Educator friendly Humanoid Robot. If you want to modify Marty's hardware, change up the colour scheme, give Marty funky Disco Eyes or even use bits of Marty for other projects, 3D Printing is the way to go.
The 3D Printable parts are slightly different from the injection moulded ones — this is because what works well in a printer won't neccessarily work well in a mould, and vice-versa.
Marty is great as-is, but adding a Raspbery Pi, Camera, Distance Sensor or other add-ons opens up many interesting possibilities: autonomous football, face recognition, simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), AprilTag tracking and whatever you can make ROS do!
We have a set of Add-Ons available in our shop, and guides on how to use them with Marty:
Marty is a proper Walking Robot with Legs & Feet — With 9 Servo Motors and a handful of built-in sensors, Marty has a much more interesting way of moving than just rolling around!
Marty is a real robot designed to help teach coding to kids, for the price of a smart toy. Marty comes as a kit or pre-built, so you can either choose the fun of building a robot, or to just jump straight-in to playing and coding with your new walking robot companion.
Marty is Wi-Fi enabled and with nine individually controllable servo motors. You can use our app to remote control Marty, and add a bunch of sensors to react to the environment — Marty can walk, turn, dance, even kick a football!
Marty is supported by fun and engaging online tutorials and a fast-growing and inquisitive community. Every Marty the Robot comes with a 2 year warranty, and we're always here to support and help.
Marty the Robot makes learning about coding, electronics, and engineering a fun, challenging and engaging process. Designed to be customisable robot with 3D printed parts, Marty is also completely upgradeable — you can even add a Raspberry Pi and a camera to Marty's head!
All packs include everything you need to build and program your very own Marty, including a screwdriver, rechargeable battery and USB charger.
