A Learning Platform Taught By Remote Tutors
While it’s not necessary to know electronics, robotics, or programming to get Niqbot running, this robot is designed to help you learn these subjects. Remote Instructors will guide you step-by-step on how to build the kit, how the code works, and the electronics that power Niqbot™.
As you explore Python programming, you’ll be shown where to modify the code to add new features like headlights, LED color lights, sensors, and mechanical devices that can be controlled using buttons on Remo.TV. When docked, the Raspberry PI that controls the robot can be easily connected to an HDMI monitor, keyboard, and mouse, allowing it to be used as a computer.
Niqbot ™ offers a complete learning platform for robotics. Start out as novice and in time you will Master the basics of robotics.
Niqbot ™ also doubles as a desktop computer. Hook it up to an HDMI monitor, keyboard and mouse to learn programming.
Recommended for bright thinkers 10+ years and up. Includes live remote training, phone support,
The best way to learn is by doing. Niqbot™ is a kit based robot that is easy to build, fun to work with, and offers a guided path to deeper understanding of electronics, mechanics, and programming. As your learner grows, so will their knowledge of how robots work. Prepare them now for the future with Niqbot ™.
The Niqbot™ kit comprises 75+ parts, along with a specially designed set of birch ply boards that tie the robot components together. The kit does not require soldering, and can be constructed in under 6 hours.
Powered by PI
The core technology used to create Niqbot™ is the Raspberry PI 3a+ ™. This open architecture computer provides all the processing power required to run the video, audio, microphone, and more. The General Purpose I/O pins across the top of the computer provide the gateway to controlling mechanics, lights, and other devices available in the learning kit.
Niqbot™ comes with full documentation and step by step instructions on how to assemble the parts. There is also a wiring diagram with instructions on how to connect the electronics and power assemblies together with the on board computer. Each week, live training sessions on assembly and wiring are provided using Zoom™, allowing the student and the instructor to view and guide the assembly process.
All live training is conducted with Zoom Video Conferencing.
Remote Conferencing is the safe, secure, and fun way to learn!
It Talks, It Listens, It sees you!
Remo.TV integration extends the robot’s capabilities through video and audio streaming. You’ll be able to invite friends and family to drive the bot, chat with you, and they will view whatever Niqbot™ sees and hear whatever you say when the bot is connected. When two or more bots are in the room, you will be able to interact and converse with each other as you drive the bots. A wifi connection is required.
Remo.TV is a real time, low latency robot control website with phone app allowing anyone worldwide to remotely control the robot. Niqbot ™ offers TTS chat, sound functions, microphone, and video streaming on the Remo.TV site.
The only source of knowledge is experience.
STEM BUILT IN
Give the Gift of Knowledge
Combining Science, Engineering, Technology, and Math in a robust kit approach, Niqbot™ also includes live training. For those interested in learning robotics, programming, artificial intelligence, and more, Niqbot™ delivers years of learning opportunity.
It’s kit design makes it easy to modify, to expand, and make your own. Great for home school or after school programs, and bright thinkers everywhere. Recommended for ages starting at 10 and up!
We’ll Build It!
Looking for a ready made robot? Don’t have time to build the kit? We can ship Niqbot™ ready to run. See options for pre-assembled in our robot shop. We still offer free training and the same warranty support as the kit.
Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.
The brain is like a muscle. When it is in use we feel very good. Understanding is joyous.
At the end of the day, the truth is that if – when – robots prevail, so many vocations will be lost. Save for the profession of making robots, that is.
