The toy provides an educational platform for both kids and adults alike

Marty the Robot is a toy robot that could help anyone explore the field of robotics. The robot walks on two feet and it runs not just one but several programming languages. It’s modular, Raspberry Pi-compatible and all parts can be 3D printed—it’s rather obvious then that the creator wants you to reinvent Marty.

A complete set ships unassembled and the first task is putting 36 parts together. Those with access to a 3D printer can also just buy the motors instead and print all parts at home. Built for tiny hands, building Marty doesn’t require any soldering and safe for kids to do.
