3D Printing is fun. It is even more fun when kids can combine it with Robotics.
So here is our InukshukBot: the Motion Sensing Bot inspired by Inukshuks (stone landmarks built by people throughout the circumpolar world, including Canada).
It is powered by Arduino Nano and uses ultrasonic sensor and light emitting diodes (LEDs).
The ultrasonic sensor detects the motion and light up an LED. As an object comes closer to Inukshuk Bot, more number of LEDs light up, and finally all 4 LEDs light up when the object is right in front of the Bot.
InukshukBot was designed on the popular software TinkerCad and the design was then uploaded on Replicator to create the gfiles. It was finally printed on FlashForge 3D Printer.
