New Reward! The Monster Robot Kit

We just added a new reward, that includes everything you need to make an amazing monster robot. All parts can be combined in a Dual Core robot with a communication cable. You will be able to make many models because it has two grippers, four motors, six wheels and many other parts.

The programming of this Dual Core cute monster will be done also via the MiniBloq Software, just by dropping icons on the screen. But you can actually assemble two autonomous robots. You can program them to fight or chase each other, do collaborative tasks or perform complex actions. 

Which reward should I choose?

Some of the final details are still under final review, for example how many extra spare parts we will be including. As we promised before, we prepared more detailed information. If you have any particular doubt, please do not hesitate in contacting us.

Collaboration

We are talking with the Galago guys to explore integrating that great board with Multiplo kits in the future. Also, after our respective Kickstarter campaigns finish, both teams will work on adding Galago support to our graphical programming environment MiniBloq.

Media interested in our project

Here you can see our that our startup has been featured at Mashable. Also we appeared on MakerMaster, TechCrunch, Makezine and others. Robots for everyone!

      Hi CK! We tried to make a simple explanation, with more details on the (most expensive) electronic components. Regarding your question about the wheels, here is a small list:

      Starter Kit = 2 Wheels with Tyres.
      Building Kit = 4 Wheels with Tyres.
      Monster Kit = 6 Wheels with Tyres.

      I hope this answers, please tell us if you have further questions.
      Thanks!
      Julián

      What about the mechanics kit? Can I assume it includes all the multiplo parts found in building kit but with 2 DC gearmotors only in electronic category?
      I'm still not sure what do you have in multiplo mechanic parts, such as how many wheels I can make, roughly how many pieces of these main component parts.
      From the picture given, my understanding is that you can make only one out of them in Building kit (given the available mechanics), 2 items in Monster kit (looks like there are 6~8 wheels).
