Coding is a great skill to pickup whether you are a kid or an adult. Programming doesn’t come easy to everyone but there are plenty of kits that make learning it more fun. Here are 6 iPhone controlled hexapod robots that give you hands-on coding experience:
Hiwonder JetHexa: an app connected hexapod robot powered by Jetson Nano. It uses a depth camera and LiDAR for mapping and navigation. It supports TensorFlow, PyTorch, Caffe/ Caffe2, and other frameworks.
XR R1: an app controlled 18DOF hexapod with AI and camera module. It has 12 pre-programmed moves. It has face recognition, color recognition, and line tracking capability. It supports Python and C++ coding.
SpiderPi: an app connected hexapod robot with AI vision. It can pick and sort items, recognize shapes, follow lines, and track targets. It supports Python programming.
Freenove Big Hexapod: this app controlled hexapod is based on a Raspberry Pi. It has face recognition, balance, real-time video, and other functions. It ships with Python code.
STEMI: this hexapod robot comes with 3D modeling instructions. It can dance, show emotions with LEDs and respond to voice commands. Users learn how to 3D model with Fusion 360.
RaspClaws: this Python programmable robot is powered by a Raspberry Pi 3. It comes with a robot HAT, Pi camera, MPU6050 Gyro Sensor, MG90S Servos, and LED modules.
