Otto DIY mission is to enable anyone in the world, teachers, parents, kids makers, and leaders to connect, share, learn and grow with each other. A new robot revolution, that empowers anyone in the world to successfully build their own robot; through the help of open source hardware, accessible technology, education and community, the Otto Builder community is all about sharing robots, getting feedback, troubleshooting and meeting all kinds of great people that want to build robots.
Why it matters OPEN SOURCE technology?
We wouldn’t exist without open source. Otto DIY robots were born from the idea of an open source hardware and we are still faithful to this ideology. Everything we do, everything we sell, is open source.
What does this mean? All source codes, 3D printed parts, blueprints, instructions manuals… everything is freely available to anyone via our great partner Wikifactory a social collaborative platform. Because we strongly believe in the community and all the people around the world we enable by sharing knowledge.
