I’m more of a software person than one to play with hardware, but for the hardware enthusiasts out there that like to play with Arduino, I thought you might be interested in the Robotic Minion!
The Robotic Minion project was started by Dustin and David Andrews (my cousins) and if you an Arduino fan, you will probably like what they have come up with. The video below gives you an idea of exactly what the Robotic Minion can do but if you want a really good description of all the ins and outs of the Robotic Minion, I would recommend checking out the instructable article on how to build your own Robotic Minion!
However, if you don’t feel like building your own or just want to support the project, there is about a day left in their kickstarter for the Robotic Minion and they could use a little help reaching their goal. As of the time of this writing, they are $291 short of their $5000 goal with about 27 hours left. If you are interested in the Robotic Minion starter kit or just like making cool projects happen, toss a couple bucks their way so they can make their goal before time runs out!
