MakerClub is for tinkerers, hobbyists, and makers alike. For those of you who want to engage in a fun project like building your own 3D-printed hexapod, MakerClub is perfect. To start, you order a bundle of electrical components and optional 3D-printed parts for a certain robot and MakerClub delivers them to your doorstep.
MakerClub provides you with in-depth instructions for each of their robotics projects. They help you step-by-step until you're robot is ready to come to life. After building, you can use MakerConnect app on a smartphone device (iOS or Android) to take control of the robot. MakerClub states that you'll even be able to upload and sell your own custom robot designs on their site.
So what's the hardware inside these bots? Other than MakerClub's custom designed board, these robots consists of your average breadboard and hobby servos. All of the parts necessary to build a robot of your liking are bundled together when you purchase a kit. MakerClub's Arduino-like board allows for hassle-free programming and assembly. There's no need to build your own programmable chip if you use theirs. For an extra $50, it's a pretty good deal. With this sort of Arduino-compatibility, MakerClub has made a library of open-source code that users can use for their robots.
Like I stated above, MakerClub has a site where users can upload new robot designs, follow guides, and share code. With this sort of collaboration, makers will be able to expand their project library and learn from others. Sites like these have already been proven to work. Just look at Thingiverse and Instructables.
So far MakerClub has raised over 7,000 euros on Indiegogo. If you're looking for an affordable way to get started with 3D-printed robots, then take a look.
