The growth at Learn Robotics for 2019 continues to amaze me. Even though February was a short month, we managed to surpass our previous records and continue to grow the LR community.
So thank you! And, if you continue to love the content we’re putting out, please share our blog with a friend. It really helps promote robotics education around the world!
Here’s a quick review of the articles and projects published on Learn Robotics for February 2019.
This month, we covered a broad range of topics: software development, industrial programming, wiring, and education. I also gave you an inside look at how I fixed my Powerbeats 3. (Not robotics related, but a good skill, nonetheless.)
I challenge you to pick any of these projects, and give them a try! You can find the materials and step-by-step instructions within each post. If you like the post, be sure to give it a rating. This helps me determine what types of content to write about next.
Now, let’s talk about the biggest launch in the history of Learn Robotics… drumroll…
Mini WiFi Robots eBook
“Can you make a book that shows me how to build a robot?”
Why yes, yes we can.
In addition to the articles and projects, we published our first full-length robotics project eBook: Mini Wi-Fi Robot.
And let me tell you, this project took FOREVER. Shoutout to WolfxPac (Harsh) the author of the book for putting up with the back-and-forth edits, additions, and long hours to get this book published.
With all the work, comes great reward. We now present you with the 50+ full-color guide to creating a custom WiFi-controlled robot from scratch.
I wanted to show you all areas of robotics (mechanics & modeling, wiring & electronics, and programming & integration). And, this eBook smashes those goals out of the park.
Join the Global Competition
Because of its success, we’re opening up a Global Robotics Competition for people who 1) purchase the Mini Wi-Fi Robot eBook and 2) have a competition pass.
We’re still ironing out the details for the competition (and working on getting some sick prizes), but I expect the competition to be April/May 2019. Be sure to follow us on Instagram (@learnrobotics) to gain the scoop on when the competition will take place!
Oh, and for those of you who bought the eBook during launch (2/13 – 2/14), you’ll gain a FREE entry into the competition. Early birds get the worm, so thank you for your support!
Sign up → eBook and Competition pass here (& save $5).
In addition to the Mini WiFi Robot eBook, you can also grab our Arduino Workbook bundle for $25.
Say goodbye to the boring LED blink project. Say hello to the coolest IoT, Games, and Devices you can make with Arduino.
And eBook #2 in the works
Yep, you heard it here first. I have another eBook in the works. A few weeks ago, I had a question come in about building a robot that could be programmed on-board without a computer. The goal is to show you how to do this for under $15. While this might sound like a no-brainer, this robot will be self-programmable using features from the button recording tutorial.
I think it’ll be a great addition for the STEM and tech enthusiasts who are looking for an affordable way to get into the robotics space.
