If there’s one thing that’s true for pretty much every single Electronics Maker out there, it’s that we all dream of having a little robotic army to do our bidding and  dominate the world  make our lives easier in various cool ways. However, it’s not always easy to figure out where to start your Robotics adventures, with many different kits catering to Makers who already know coding or robotics, with very few being focused toward simple robotics, but that’s why we’ve taken a strong liking to tiny Robotics Learning platforms like the DIY Spider-Bot, as this is designed to help Makers understand how the mechanics behind robotics work, and then integrate electronics into the mechanical arrangements in order to create actual robots.

While the DIY Spider-Bot Platform may not look like the most impressive Robotics Kit out there, it is designed to focus more on learning the basics, with mechanics that are easy to see and understand, and minimal extra components needed to get it operating. However, this is just where the fun starts, and once you’ve figured out how this little spidey-bot works, you can then expand on your bot further with Sensors and other modules to give it more functionality, a smarter microcontroller “brain” to interact with the world, and even more advanced ways to move around. This is perfect for anyone who wants to learn about robotics but doesn’t quite know where to start, as this kit allows you to build a fully functioning robot in just a matter of minutes, but also offers awesome ways to enhance it as you enhance your skills in Electronics, coding and robotics as a whole. This unique style dedicated to learning, along with an awesomely price, makes the DIY Spider-Bot a great choice for beginners, but also for veterans who want to expand their robot army and enjoy all of the fun designs and ideas that robotics has to offer.

Please Note: This is designed as quite an open-ended DIY Kit, and while it may have limited functionality out of the box, it can easily be enhanced with other parts, stronger motors, various sensors and other fun components. Furthermore, you can even get a second DIY Spider Bot to extend and grow the first with more motors and better control, and as your skills in electronics and robotics advance, so too will your ability to modify and customise the style and functionality of you little Spider-Bot Companion.
