Today, I would like to draw your attention to the latest buzz in Malaysia’s educational robotic industry – rero, which stands for reconfigurable robot. rero is a robot construction kit at a whole new level, featuring easy-to-use hardware design and programming tool. It is designed and manufactured by Cytron Technologies. rero official website here: www.rero.com.my
rero incorporate with very unique design cube servo s and several joining parts that eliminate the use of screws and nuts in the entire construction process. Easy-to-build, screw-less mechanism and fewer parts with the highest possibility are among the design guidelines. rero comes with very minimal parts and yet it can be used to build unlimited types of robots.
rero also provided an easy-to-program GUI for school students to learn robotics and it is free. For university students, you can still program rero using C code with the aid of library (API). You can use rero to present your idea without the need to construct everything from scratch. You can do many things with the high-spec rero controller. It comes with a 3.2” TFT LCD colour touch screen, bluetooth module, 6 DOF IMU, audio playback function with a speaker and many more.
rero is doing their pre-sales now at indiegogo.com with very great discount. The quantity is limited so better act fast if you like to build your own robot. Indiegogo link here: http://www.
P/S: Indiegogo is a crowd funding platform similar to Kickstarter. Basically it is a platform for people to share their ideas and to get people to support them. In return, supporters will receive promised perks such as great discounts, free gifts etc.
