Making Simple Robots

You can make robots that really work from everyday stuff, but why stop there? Making Simple Robots will teach you the basics of soldering, 3D printing, Arduino programming and more!

With projects that range from simple to advanced, you can make paper models bend themselves with shape-changing wire, design 3D-printable robot legs, build a flexible robot with a "programmable" body, add transistors to a simple Solar Wobblebot, and get step-by-step help to sew, wire up, and program a stuffed robot with an animated eye!
