DotBot:bit is an open source robot chassis to prototype robot with BBC micro:bit.

This robot has been created to make 3D printing and programming lessons for my students

To create DotBot:bit you need:

n 1 micro:bit,
n. 2 Servo:lite board from Kitronik,
n. 2 FS90R micro continuous rotation servo
n. 2 wheels for FS90R 60mm x 8mm
n. 2 glass marble (16 mm).

Two versions of DotBot: bit

  1. DotBot:bit
    easy and fast to print

  2. DotBot:bit Truck
    allows the connection of other mechanical elements
