With more and more development in robotics, we have seen developers build some really advanced robots to aid humans in various tasks. We have all seen the terrifying yet cute robot-dog, Spot, from Boston Dynamics ta out in the real world. Now, there is a palm-sized Spot-like robot dog called Bittle that’s made for STEM learning.
STEM learning, if you are unfamiliar, is essentially a curriculum focused on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It is used to educate students in the above four disciplines and improve their knowledge about the ever-changing world of tech.
So, to educate children in the field of robotics, the Pittsburg-based robotics company, Petoi, made the Petoi Bittle. It is essentially a tiny robot-dog which can fit in the palm of your hands. The developers say that it is not a toy for small kids, but a perfect tool for teaching and learning the basics of robotics and electrical assemblies.
To start off with Bittle, users need to assemble its puzzle-like frame and then download the necessary demo codes from Petoi’s GitHub repository.
