Low Voltage Labs LLC, a maker of STEM products for Raspberry Pi and soldering kits, has purchased the line of robots from Plum Geek Robotics. Low Voltage Labs owner Eric Thompson will continue to work with Kevin King, the creator of the Plum Geek robots, to ensure the smooth transition of Low Voltage Labs taking over the robotic product line.
Low Voltage Labs is already manufacturing WinkBot, and expect to have the first robots available in April of 2019. WinkBot, a robot that is programmed with Arduino, can use basic programming to follow lines, seek lights, detect barriers, and more. It is the perfect robot for those learning to program code. Users learn the basics of the C language in a fun, non-complicated way.
Low Voltage Labs has also started production on the Ringo robot. Also programmed with Arduino, Ringo was designed to inspire people learning to write code to breath life and real personality into their own robotic pet. Ringo is loaded with sensors, allowing users to code hundreds of possible behaviors. Ringo will be available in May of 2019.
