UPDATE: When the Indiegogo campaign ends,
we will make mOwayduino anyway!, even though
we don´t reach the goal on the campaign!!
mOwayduino in the news
Do you think programming is difficult?
Did you think Robotics is just for programmers?
We don´t think so. Our aim is to make robotics accessible to everyone.
At Minirobots we have developed mOwayduino, an open source robot, based on Arduino technology. mOwayduino robot is ready to program, with multiple built-in sensors, motors and more.
You don´t need to have any robotics background to start working with mOwayduino.
mOwayduino FOR EVERYONE
Our aim at Minirobots is to make robotics accessible to everyone who wants to develop robotic applications, to awaken an interest in programming and to introduce it into society as a whole.
We want to create a product for all ages, a free hardware structure that puts no limits to learning.
The same tool for different programming languages and for different levels and which is ready to work and get results from the very start. An open source robot with the only limit of your imagination.
READY-TO-GO ROBOT. BUILT-IN SENSORS
An already built platform which includes everything you need to start working:
• Arduino Leonardo based robot (ATmega 32u4)
• 4 anti-collision infrared sensors
• 1 directional light intensity sensor
• 2 opto-reflective infrared sensors for the floor
• Bicoloured luminous indicator on top
• Frontal LED
• Red rear LEDs
• 3-axis accelerometer
• RF communication based on nRF24L01+
• LiPo battery rechargable via USB
• 2 hours without external power supply
• Prepared for collaborative robotics
• Expansion modules
A compact design which you can extend adding infinitive number of accessories. From a WI-FI connection to any circuit designed by you.
Computer Vision System
mOwayduino Camera is a vision system that connects to mOwayduino's expansion slot. You will be able to see real-time images captured by the camera on the PC screen and create computer vision applications: recognising shapes and colours, control the robot with visual codes, make mOwayduino find objects, etc.
Wi-Fi. Internet of things
This module adds an internet connection to mOwayduino and provides it with a client/web server. You will be able to develop a number of different applications:
- Control mOwayduino from your mobile devices, tablets, telephones etc.
- Consult social networks and any Internet website
- Send e-mails
- Control mOwayduino's movements via its webserver
- And any more...
Equip mOwayduino with even more options. Personalised electronic circuits can be created and added to let the imagination soar with mOwayduino.
WHAT CAN WE DO WITH mOwayduino?
Here are some of the things you'll learn how to do:
APP FOR iOS AND ANDROID
With mOwayduino and the Wi-Fi module, you will soon be able to enjoy a number of applications we are developing for tablets and smartphones.
SDK FOR DEVELOPERS
mOwayduino is a completely open source platform which allows you to interact with any external device.
You can control mOwayduino from any platform, using its WIFI capabilities, computer vision system, and radio-frequency.
Thanks to its WIFI conexion you can communicate mOwayduino with your mobiles and tablets.
You can develop your own mobile applications.
We are Minirobots, a company created by 2 young engineers who set off on their professional career by creating Bizintek Innova,(www.bizintekinnova.com) an engineering company to develop electronic products for third-party companies in different sectors.
Over a period of 4 years, we have developed products for a number of different sectors. But there was one product that was missing.
A product which familiarise people with the world of programming and apply this to a real environment and would also develop the creativity and the sense of logic and imagination because Programming is the present and the future.
We are a start up but we have a clear idea of what we can offer society.
With mOwayduino we want to go even further and develop a free hardware platform to bring programming within everyone’s reach. We are moved by the same enthusiasm and motivation as when we started, and we believe in our idea. But we need your help.
A small help from you would be very valuable to us.
For us, any kind of help is important, not only the economic part. Help us to spread the word and convey our idea. Your voice will be our best form of advertising.
If you believe in our idea, help us and together we will bring mOwayduino world wide.
USE OF FUNDS
We are asking you for your collaboration in order to be able to attain our objectives which will be beneficial for everyone (parents, children, teachers, and so on) and to demonstrate that with very little it is possible to give future generations a knowledge in accordance with the times in which we live.
Our aim is to bring mOwayduino into our homes, schools and leisure centres.
We need your help to develop our project and cover all the steps required prior to its commercialization.
- To start up production
- Develop mobile software applications
- Finish the development of the SDK for developers
- Meet the obligatory requirements in order to be able to market this product, such as the CE mark and FCC certificate.
