Meet the MiiA Family
Say hi to the MiiA Family – a range of accessible, extensible, engaging and multi-purpose robotics platforms designed with the core principle to be teaching and learning tools. MiiA is based on the Otto Robot shared under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-SA 3.0) license. MiiA was redesigned to be easily accessible to encourage both students and budding makers alike to be fully immersed in the process of building a robot from start to finish.
Our newest offering, MiiA.bit, is a rover based version of MiiA that allows for a peek into the world of robotics from a different perspective.
All robots in the MiiA family are packaged as complete DIY kits including everything required to result in a fully functioning robot. This includes the easy to assembly structure, servo motors, printed circuit board, microcontroller as well as a variety of sensors. Also included are assembly instructions and detailed getting started guides to quickly get you started.
Introducing, the MiiA.bit robot
- Easy to assemble structure
- Sensors for interacting with the outside world
- Bluetooth for wireless control
- Powered by Arduino Micro-controller for a world of options
What can MiiA do?
The brains behind the MiiA Family is powered by an Arduino Microcontroller. This allows it to be fully programmable, enabling the user to implement nearly any functionality they can think of. At the very least, the MiiA Family of robots can walk, drive, dance and avoid obstacles. The design of the printed circuit board is modular to allow the addition of various sensors and other modules such as RF Transmitters/Receivers, Bluetooth Communication Modules, or even audio output modules. This modular and flexible design allows robots in the MiiA Family to be tailored to be as simple or as complex as the use case requires.
In fifteen years we’ll be teaching programming just like reading
and writing . . .
and wondering why we didn’t do it sooner
