- Hummingbird base robotics kit for all ages
- Uses Hummingbird Duo controller as core of the kit
- Includes everything you need to make a small robot
- Program in everything from Scratch to Java
- Ages: 13+
The Hummingbird Duo Base Kit has everything you need to build a robot, just add craft materials. Hummingbird is designed to enable engineering and robotics activities for ages 13 and up (8 with adult supervision) that involve the making of robots, kinetic sculptures, and animatronics built out of a combination of kit parts and crafting materials.
Combined with very easy-to-use visual programming environments like Scratch, Snap, the Visual Programmer, and Ardublock, Hummingbird provides a great way to introduce kids to robotics and engineering with construction materials that they are already familiar with. At the same time, Hummingbird continues to provide new challenges by allowing programming in the Arduino environment, Python, Java, and Processing, and by supporting Raspberry Pi. It is a robotics kit that is equally challenging and compelling to the beginner and expert.
Hummingbird Duo Controller
The Hummingbird Duo is essentially two boards in one: it operates as either an original Hummingbird controller or as an Arduino Leonardo with an integrated motor/servo shield and improved connectors. With the Hummingbird Duo, the Arduino has been built right into the controller, so that anyone who wants to can immediately take that next step. The Duo controller will be the core of all Hummingbird kit. All kit components are soldered with 24" braided wires and terminate in bare, tinned wire to prevent wire fraying. Securely connecting them to the Duo controller is easy due to Duo's clear labels and spring-loaded terminal blocks.
