Otto: the Dancing Machine

Build a better robot!

Construct your personal Otto robot and program it to move and groove! The Arduino Nano acts as the brain that controls the customized 3D printed body and feet, along with 4 separate motors for the leg muscles. Once built, Otto will be able to walk, dance, sing, and even avoid obstacles....at your command. Walk away from one session with a new robot pal!
