Crowdsourcing Mornings: Petoi Bittle: A Palm-Sized Robot Dog For STEM And Fun

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at: https://geekalabama.com/media-kit-pr/geek-alabama-crowdsourcing-guidelines

Petoi Bittle is a tiny but powerful robot that can play tricks like real animals. We fine-tuned every bit to fit agile maneuverability into a palm-sized robot pet. You can bring Bittle to life by assembling its puzzle-like frame and downloading our demo codes on GitHub. You can also teach it new skills to win prizes in our community challenges. Bittle makes a perfect tool for learning, teaching, and researching, or a surprising gift to impress your family and friends. Bittle is not a toy for small kids. We recommend parental guidance to appreciate its rich content and avoid damage or injury.

Evolving with an open-source gene, Bittle is an open platform to fuse multiple makers’ gadgets into one organic system. With our customized Arduino board coordinating all instinctive and sophisticated movements, you can clip on various sensors to bring in perception. You could also inject artificial intelligence capabilities by mounting a Raspberry Pi or other AI chips through wired/wireless connections.

Bittle is the second product of OpenCat, sibling of Nybble. Backed by a worldwide user group, you can find many tutorials and project ideas on the Internet. By posting on our forum or social media (Instagram/Twitter @PetoiCamp), you can contribute to the community or simply make your wishes heard. We are always drawing the blueprint for futuristic robots!

As of September 2nd, this project has raised $187,000 of their $50,000 goal. This project has 28 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $5, you will get project updates.  For a pledge of $225, you will get everything you need to make your robot dog.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/petoi/bittle?
