Carduino – 3D Printed RC Car Controlled via Smartphone

The team of Maker Club, led by founder and CEO Simon Riley, has created a RC car made out of 3D printed parts that can be controlled by a smartphone app connected to an Arduino chip.

The Carduino is one of Maker Club’s first big projects to be implemented in schools and it is supposed to get kids enthusiastic about robotics. All 3D printed parts can be customised and printed in any colour desired. Possible add-ons according to Maker Club could be distance detectors to avoid collisions, a GoPro for some cool mobile camera footage or an awesome 3D printed shells to personalise your car.

The car is controlled via the Maker Connect app. The intuitive, easy-to-use application was developed by Maker Club to control all their robotic creations via Bluetooth technology.



Their Indiegogo campaign for this project will launch shortly. Designs and codes can already be downloaded on their website.
