Dash is the world's first lightning-fast origami robot that people love to play with. Our animal-inspired design allows us to offer a fun, high performance robot at a price never before possible. Dash is a great educational tool for kids that want to get an early start in robotics, engineering, and biology, as well as a great platform for makers that want to dig in and explore the possibilities of a new paradigm in robotics.
Because he has legs, Dash can run over all sorts of terrain, including rocks and gravel. And he is so tough that you can run him off of tables and he just keeps going!
What do I get?
The Dash kit comes with everything you need to build and run Dash with your iOS device. This includes the laser-cut body components, as well as the motor, transmission, and plug-and-play electronics. The assembly should take about an hour, and we have videos online that show you how it all comes together. The only thing you'll need to supply is all-purpose glue (like Elmer's).
