A cool kid’s project, looking for funds! Looks like on the way to get funded.

How it started

Last winter, I promised my eight-year-old son to build a little balancing robot that he could program. One thing led to another, and this robot turned out to be a much more elaborate project than originally envisioned. “It’s not urgent,” he says. If all the bosses of the world were so patient!

Lil’Bot is programmed just like an Arduino Uno, and takes standard Arduino shields. About half of the Arduino memory and three quarters of the processing power are available after the balancing code and all the rest have taken their share.
