Starting from 50 EUR. Full set costs 319 EUR

It is a robotic arm, consisting of 6 motors allowing life-like movements and 3D printed elements. The use of rivets make the assembly, modification and reassembly easy. Ergo Jr comes with three tools for different interactions with its environment: a lampshade, a gripper and a pen holder. 

The robot is controlled with a Raspberry Pi board, and a camera helps it interact with the world. 

Everything in the robot is let transparent and accessible to promote an educative approach and an interactive technology.

The Poppy project is a community-centered robotic project. It targets the needs of a multidisciplinary community where researchers, teachers, artists, and robotic enthusiasts can share their work and ideas.
