Welcome to the Hull Pixelbot Microsite. You can find all the designs on GitHub. Eventually we're gong to move everything onto our spiffy new address: www.hullpixelbot.com

And then there's....

Correct Lecture Poster.png

I do lectures in rhyme for charity. This one will be all about building and using your own pixelbot.

These are our elite "Red Nose Robots" being drilled for Red Nose Day.

This is the robots being used to display pixels.

On the day of the Comic Relief lecture you'll be able to use the chat window above to control your very own robot.

As long as you've sponsored me of course.

c4di Meetups

We meet up at c4di every couple of weeks to work on our robots and talk hardware. You can find out about the latest meeting here

Hull Pixelbot Fan Art

I've been playing around making some "fan art" for the Hull Pixelbot. Here's my first attempt. You can click through the image above for a high quality version you can print out and stick on your wall.

Hull Pixelbot version 2.0

Version 2.0 of the HullPixelBot design files are now on Thingeverse. The design now includes provision for pixel holders for the top and rear of the robot and a holder for a distance sensor and three light detectors. I'll be updating the construction details and software samples for these new additions. 

I'm also working on a set of drivers for motors and sensors which are coming along nicely. They'll be posted here soon. They will allow you to make the robot move in curves and also give precise control of robot positioning. 

Welcome to HullPixelBot. A slow moving, easy to make, Arduino powered, tiny robot.

Getting Started

  • You can find the 3D designs for the bot here.
  • You can find assembly instructions here.
  • You can find a program to get your robot moving here.

You can 3D print the components or, if you are a Hull student we'll see if we can print a set for you. The electrical parts will cost you around 10 pounds.
