I have recently finished a new and improved version of the Pixybots. Presenting Pixybots v2.3. The original program has been fine tuned to be more responsive. The robot also has may other features including a upgraded laser cut chassis, deans power connectors, pan/tilt head, and IR cliff detection in the front. If you have not seen the Pixy robots before there is alot of information on the orginal version in the projects page. 

Here is a short clip of them in action enjoy!

About Our Hackerspace

Arch Reactor was founded in 2009 by a group of friends who liked technology, programming, making, and pizza. Now St. Louis' largest hackerspace, Arch Reactor's growing membership continues to bring new skills, projects, equipment, and people to one place.

For a deeper understanding of what we're about, you should check out our explanation of hackerspaces, perhaps read about one of our members' projects, or (best of all) come meet us in person at the next open event!
