Out of the box, the mobile app worked easily and quickly over the BlueTooth connection mechanism. This 'Pet Toy' It is really cute.
I was able to update the NyBoard V1_2 firmware after a Mac OS Driver on my MacBook Pro was updated and I figured out how to
establish the USB connection with the Uploader circuit substituted in place of the BlueTooth circuit. The Arduino IDE 2.0 seems to
work with the USB Uploader plugged in. I purchased some sensors and I will work on the Gestures circuit/module first. I am hoping
to have some gestures working soon enough to use in an upcoming workshop for middle school girls sponsored by STEM Santa Fe.
Thanks for a great hands-on teaching inspiration. BTW, I do have a Computer Science degree with an Electrical Engineering minor.
Programming this unit may intimidate those without some technical background.
Petoi Bittle is without a doubt the best robotic kit that I have seen. It is elegant engineering. Bittle does not show any signs of weaknesses or cost cutting. The build, quality and cosmetics are excellent and more importantly it is extensible. From a shipping standpoint the product packaging is excellent with all items held firmly in place. Startup and assembly instructions and supporting videos are available online. Calibrating the legs was also well documented and easy. The kit includes everything you need as well as an IR Remote, and a spare relay, spring and boot. The IR Remote is great to get started without a PC or Phone. My unit started up and was able to perform all the pre-programmed functions without a problem. Code is available online that allows you to control Bittle from your PC or Phone. Both sets of code downloaded and worked properly. I purchased the Intelligent Camera Module with Bittle, it was also well documented, and I was able to get it up and functioning in minutes. I was even able to 3D Print a stand from a file provided by Petoi. Bittle's software is open source, and it is supported by a lot of documentation and additional sample code. I was looking for a robotic platform that I could extend and Bittle has exceeded my expectations in every area. Adding or changing Bittle's functionality requires a knowledge of Arduino and coding, but the good news is there is a lot of information on Petoi Camp that will help get you started. Additionally, Bittle supports a Scratch like language to help kids and non-programmers get started. If you are starting a STEM class or a project to teach your kids robotics, Bittle would be an excellent choice, they even provide a link to download a suggested curriculum. The only part of Bittle that I wasn't impressed with was the head and sensor mounting. I think a Nybble style head with two axes of movement would be better especially if a camera could be integrated with the ultrasonic sensor. For anyone looking for a quadruped robot I would highly suggest you consider Bittle.
Excellent solution to initiate about robotics from 7 to 99 years old
