About this project
Tiddly Bot introduces anyone to the exciting world of robotics in a fun and simple way. Tiddles is great for the learning of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, (STEM) as well as basic robotics and programming.
Based on the Raspberry Pi the Tiddly Kit adds robot powers like movement, a multi-colored light, and line-drawing and following. This can be used to help learn and teach programming as well as for playing games. Great for schools and at home.
Our developed software allows things to work out the box. Connect to any smartphone, tablet or PC then remote control Tiddles or program with our customised Blockly Interface.
Tiddles is a Squiggly Bot!
TiddlyBot is a squiggly bot and can draw both freestyle and programmatically. Several with different colors can make modern art!

New Workshop Experience Offered!
We've been running fun and engaging workshops since last September and now we’d like to offer this experience on Kickstarter. In this two hour workshop experience, we'll get you building, programming, and playing in no time. (See http://www.pibot.org/workshops.php for more details).
As well as delivering your rewards your backing with fund our energetic team to develop great learning software, content and workshop experiences, to reach hundreds of young people. We're serious about empowering the next generation with vital tech skills, as well as confidence and your backing will make this possible.
Meet the Team
We're a multi-disciplined group of digital creatives. We're passionate about using play to help learning, and are excited about learning and playing more to deliver the TiddlyBot to a wider audience.
We made the first stretch goal! Here's a taste of the 'Beginners guide to robotics' we want to develop.
What's in the Kit?
Risks and challenges
Tiddles is a simple robot. This is a good thing! There's bound to be challenges to overcome though our dedicated team will do all we can to get this project to you on time and to plan. We've built hundreds of prototypes over the last year and we've already built test batches and shipped them, so we know what we're letting ourselves in for. Electronics needs some final tweaking though this is already underway and we have time to get things just right.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
