Frequently Asked Questions
Where's the manual/documentation?
Please visit our documentation for detailed instructions on assembly, configuring, deploying codes to run sample codes, and using different modules.
What's the recommended age?
Nybble is suitable for adults and children over the ages of 14. Kids can enjoy playing with Nybble under the supervision of an adult.
How long does it take to assemble Nybble?
On average, it takes four hours to assemble Nybble's frame. No soldering is required for the basic functionalities of Nybble. There are several moments when you need to be extremely careful to plug in the cords in the right order and direction.
How beginner-friendly is the process of setting up the software and playing with Nybble?
After assembling the pieces, you will need to learn some basic operations in Arduino IDE or use the Petoi mobile/desktop apps to configure. Then you can control Nybble with the included infrared remote or the Petoi mobile or desktop apps.
Do I need to order other parts to make Nybble walk? How long does the battery last?
You need two 14500 Li-ion rechargeable 3.7V batteries and a smart charger. Two batteries can provide 45 mins of playing time.
Be careful with fake batteries! Don't trust batteries that claim a capacity larger than 850mAh. We have been using EBL Li-ion batteries and they work well. If you are in the US, you can buy the EBL batteries or the battery + charger combo from Walmart.
Note that Nybble doesn't come with batteries.

Thank you for the work you put into the project and for sharing it with the world, even under adverse conditions (GFW, visa). I am looking forward to developing projects with Nybble and sharing. I’m excited to put a Lidar on Nybble’s back and have him navigate around my house with SLAM algorithm.
I received my kit today and very happy with it. It’s very well designed. I just wish I had something like this when I was younger so I’m glad you’re trying to make the hobby more accessible/affordable. Thanks.
So excited to get my two Nybble kits soon. I have two kiddos who are interested in programming and robotics and this will be perfect to fill in a bunch of the quarantine time with quality learning!
