BOXZ by Leo Sep 19, 2012


BOXZ is is an open source robot platform for interactive entertainment! We connected Arduino,Plexiglas(or Cardboard) Origami and your idea together, so we can easily and quickly build a remote robot by ourselves! We can use it to playing football game, racing, fighting or some other interesting things!
