Creating unique Decabots
Decabot platform was created to be explored especially in the personalisation. The idea is to use the basic chassis to easily assemble your components (Arduino, motors, batteries…) and create new forms of exterior formats, using new materials, like MDF, cardboard, acrylic, paper machê, paper, wood, LEGO, or 3D print.
