Current robotic kits on the market come in a variety of expertise levels. Simplistic robotic systems generally focus on the younger audience and come with a simple remote control that sends commands to the robot which executes predefined motions. More advanced robotic kits come with programming software. The novel feature of our invention is that the robotic motion be programmed through physical manipulation. Our system allows the user to create, run, and even edit complex motion control algorithms onboard, without having to connect to a computer and deal with programming software.

This method of generating code allows someone with little or no programming experience to create complex motion control programs for a wide array of devices. It's a fun, hands-on bridge for beginners to learn how to program. It's a fast way to test machinery with multiple degrees of freedom.
