TipToe: App Controlled Walking Robot

Super Cool Physics Toys

We have covered plenty of awesome robots here in the past. You can’t control all of them using an app. TipToe is different. This 6 legged robot kit can be controlled using an iPhone/iPad application. Designed to introduce you to the field of robotics, TipToe can be assembled in a few minutes using a Phillips screwdriver and a pair of pliers.

The kit is available in two models: The Basic version has:

  • 6 legs
  • Forward, Backward and Turn Walking
  • 2 adjustable eyes
  • temperature sensor
  • iPhone app

The Plus version adds a carapace, sonar ranging sensor, and a speaker. TipToe only uses three servo motors. It can walk, report back the ambient temperature, and change its eye colors. The Plus version can play sounds and sense distance. This Arduino-compatible robot can be yours for under $100 on Kickstarter.
