Introduction: How to Make RC Origami Robot With Arduino

I like playing with paper. After knowing about Arduino, I have been trying to combine the two. In this instruction, I will try to explain how to make a RC origami robot.

Step 1: Step 1. Design the Robot

I used Blender to design the robot. The robot has 8 legs. It will use the followings;

  • One Arduino UNO
  • One HC-06 (Bluetooth module)
  • Two DC motors
  • One L298N (DC motor driver)

Step 2: Step2 Print Out the Design

I used the Shillute Cameo to pre-cut paper. The cutter didn't cut through the design but it is still very handy to cut out the design by hand later.

Step 3: Step 3. Programming

I used the Arduino IDE for programming. The program is very simple. It is using HC-06 (a Bluetooth module) to communicate with an app in smartphones.

Step 4: Making Video

The video will show you how to make the robot and the final result.

    Wow, this looks so good!

    Have you seen this class the site has for new Instructables authors?

    https://www.instructables.com/class/How-to-Write-an-Instructable-Class/

    There are loads of helpful ideas in there, and totally worth a look if you're interesting in taking the documentation of your project to the next level. This robot is excellent and with full written steps, would very likely be featured on the site! : D
