Hey,

You may know that fabric8r.com is currently based in the Cincinnati, Ohio area. A maker from this area is running a kickstarter project for his educational robots. I've enjoyed talking with him several times at the local mini maker faire.

The robots are not designed for heavy workloads - instead, they are weak for safety. The underlying custom electronics though should support stronger motors if needed (this is what I recall from talking to him - things may have changed, or I might not remember correctly).

Anyway, if you're in Cincinnati, take a chance to support a local, and otherwise check out the offerings and see if they suit you.

Here's the link:

July 2018 delivery?

It looks like a fun device, plus you have the option to go pick it up in person or at least commiserate on why the project failed. I'd consider gambling on it, but I'm way too many projects behind to pick up a new one

We’re doing really well! 176% funded with 5 days to go. Not much time left, and the retail price is a good deal higher.
