Assemble the robot and get started

Each motion module already knows a pre-defined movement like grabbing, panning or twisting. Connect it to the Powerbrain, turn it on and press Play.

Start the powerbrain by pressing the play button…

Press play again and your robot starts moving

With (+) and (-) you control the speed it’s as simple as that.

Record and replay movements (Teach)

You have just built a robot-dog and now want to teach it something? No worries, the Twister and Pivot modules are able to learn new movements.

App-Remote Control

Controlling your robot remotely with your smartphone or tablet? Of course, it’s possible! Download our Tinkerbots App (iOS/Andoid) and make your robots move while relaxing on the couch.
