Learn to make your own robots with this accessible, illustrated guide for robotics enthusiasts, featuring 13 unique robotics projects suitable for beginner to intermediate level. You’ve seen the sci-fi movies and dreamed of creating your very own robot. Now learn to build machines with your own hands that will move or perform tasks at your command.

Featuring brand-new projects and specially commissioned photography, this book uses easily sourced components to teach you simple electronics and programming. Learn to design and build your very own custom-made creations that can walk, draw or even guard your home.

Start with a space-age butterfly that skips along on its own or a robot that creates psychedelic patterns of amazing variety, then discover how to create a catapult bot that activates when movement is detected or construct an intelligent, all-terrain rover vehicle – the possibilities are endless.

Daniel Knox first learned how to make and build things in his grandad's workshop. Now, Daniel manages the running of 'The Shed', an open access workshop at the University of Kent that provides space and machinery for students to work on practical projects. Daniel also helps run TinkerSoc, a student society whose antics have included creating a choir of singing Furbies, building 'spud' cannons and engaging in ant-weight robot wars.
