The RobotGeek Whegly is an Arduino based, 4x wheg (wheel / leg) robot kit designed to overcome rougher terrain than your average wheeled robot. The open wheel design allows the Whelgy Robot to quickly change from a standard roll to climbing small obstacles wherever necessary.
Whegly is powered by the RobotGeek Geekduino, 4x RobotGeek Continuous Rotation Servos and is constructed of a rigid 1/8" thick Delrin body capable of withstanding those obstacles he is so eager to walk right over. Whegly comes with a rechargeable 7.4v 2200 mAh battery and charger which offers up to 2 hours of run-time and includes an Infra Red Game Pad for manual control.
Because Whegly is Arduino based, he is compatible with all manner of Arduino based sensors and products, you can add lights, speakers, even an LCD to your crawler to customize its appearance!
Whegly is Open Source, you can download all the applicable files to program and build Whegly and with a 3D printer you can give him some extra character or functionality! We added hubcaps to ours to prevent him from getting stuck on his side, what will you add?
