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!


Follow the step, I will show you how to build a BOXZ Base
Here are the drawing, skin of Mario, Android Client and Arduino code in the Att.
We just need print and cut, then download the arduino code and install Android Client

Here is the Step by Step how to make a BOXZ

Version info:
BOXZ Base: Easy and funny, made by cardboard
BOXZ Pro: Support more sensor and use plexiglass

Size info:
The Cube of BOXZ: 128x128x128MM
The Skin of BOXZ: 130x130x130MM

Some more update:

Everything you can find it here, include the draw, arduino code and skin...Have fun!
