Nybble – World’s Cutest Open Source Robotic Kitten

Nybble is a robotics kitten that changes its movement, behavior, and CAT-itude as you program it and help it grow. Built on an open source platform, Nybble has endless possibilities in the way you can “teach” tricks, make it faster, and make friends by communicating with other Nybble owners. Nybble is also the first product […]
