CES 2017 - Every year CES gathers many interesting startups and this year was no different. One of the most interesting things that caught our eyes is a little spider-robot that appeared to be dancing.
The robot, named STEMI Hexapod, is a product of a Croatian startup that wanted to create a learning experience in a fun and easy way. The robot comes in parts that you can then put together on your own. You will also need an app that will let you control the robot's movement by tilting the phone.
By building STEMI, you will learn 3D modeling, electronics, Arduino programming and mobile app programming. Since we strongly believe that knowledge should be available to everyone, we will make the entire platform Open Access. Also, we made all the blueprints, 3D models and the source code available for everyone to use and customize.
STEMI will teach you many scientific, technological, engineering and mathematical concepts which is why it's perfect for anyone from the age of 14, but adults will also find it challenging and entertaining.
The STEMI also has some cool features, like being able to change the height of the robot, you can also build your robot into different shapes, and it can dance.
The price of STEMI robot will be around $300, and we'll update you on the availability once that becomes known.
