The popularity of hobby robotics and the maker movement is soaring, inspiring innovations in micro manufacturing and sparking creativity in DIYers worldwide.
For me, it all began when I built my son a toy robot for his 4th birthday. I crafted it from a piece of Snapware, an Arduino and other odds and ends, and made it controllable over the Internet. I proudly presented it to my son, who, a short time later, asked if I could build him one that poops.
Spurred by the challenge, a need to fulfill my child’s expectations, and my own (apparently passed-down) fascination with poop, I went to work and built him one. And now I want to teach you how to build one as well.
In this panel you will learn how to get started with Arduino, how to program your ‘bot using HTML, CSS & Javascript, and how to use Breakout.js and Node.js to tie it all together. You'll also discover some great resources to keep you inspired and learn about some exciting new technologies on the horizon.
