Making Simple Robots is based on one idea: Anybody can build a robot! That includes kids, English majors, school teachers, and grandparents. If you can knit, sew, or fold a flat piece of paper into a box, you can build a no-tech robot. If you can use a hot glue gun, you can learn to solder basic electronics into a low-tech robot that reacts to its environment. And if you can program your smart phone, or you're willing to learn a little bit of programming, you can build a Simple Robot that follows your directions. Filled with amazing low-tech/no-tech robotics projects, Making Simple Robots is written for non-engineers of any age. All you need to get started are basic crafts skills - cutting, taping, and gluing. And most can be built with just easy-to-find materials. But the projects inside will take you from cardboard-and-duct tape creations to 3D printed components and Arduino programming. Each project includes step-by-step directions as well as clear diagrams and photographs. And every chapter offers suggestions for modifying and expanding the projects, so that you can return to the projects again and again as your skill set grows.
