BOB the Biped

I try to get my kids involved into robotics. There is only one problem. I have two daughters. They are interested but the things I build are not attractive to see so they are bored very fast.

I have a Ultimaker 3D printer for a few months now (I will write about this someday) and they really like this thing. The girls only want to print dogs and the oldest one asked me to print a Aibo dog for her. Great idea but … maybe some other time.

Last week I found something on the Internet what’s simple and looks great. I showed it to my kids and they loved it. It’s Called BOB the Biped. This is an open source project build by K.Biagini. You can find it at

Below the parts I printed. Next on the todo list are the electronics.
