Introducing the Fartbot

Posted by in Fun stuff

This was a little challenge my kid and I set for ourselves: building a fartbot. Contrary to its name, it doesn’t fart (I can feel your disappointment) – it’ll end up being a mobile-controlled ghost-like robot that produces fog and awkward sounds.

We just finished step one: making a bluetooth controlled moving platform – which ended up being pretty easy (thanks to the pile of tutorials out there, and awesome embedded platforms such as Arduino). We set up a build log on fartbot.co, so feel free to build yours too and let us know how it goes!
