The Microbric I-Bot is a small robot that was distributed as a build-it-yourself kit by the Adelaide Advertiser newspaper in South Australia, in November-December 2005. It is designed to be used as an introduction to electronics and to teach robotics.
A community of I-Bot users has developed with the aid of internet forums.
Programs can be created and uploaded to the I-Bot, via Windows and Mac software available from the I-Bot website. A simple graphical interface is used to create programs which can then be uploaded to the I-Bot via holding it up to a flashing square on the display.
The programmer requires internet access, but I-Bot programs can be shared with others using a 'shareId' number.
