Hackabot Nano is a Compact Plug and Play Arduino compatible robotic kit. The goal is to provide a platform that enables people build feature-rich robots without having to worry about complex wiring.

The project was successfully funded through KickStarter in April 2015. All orders are fulfilled in June/July 2015. For those who missed the campaign can still purchase it in our store on Amazon, Tindie and Etsy.




Feature highlights:

  • Very compact: about 12cm x 12cm x 5.5cm (4.7in x 4.7in x 2.2 in)
  • Controller: Arduino Nano compatible. Program with standard IDE.
  • Connectivity: Radio Frequency (2.4GHz), WiFi, Bluetooth, Raspberry Pi
  • Robot Chassis: Fabric Shield (the main PCB) is designed to mount up to 4 motors directly
  • Sensors: GPS, Gyroscope + Accelerometer, Ultrasonic Distance Sensor.
  • Motor driver: capable of driving up to 4 DC or servo motors.
  • DC Motors: two versions  (A) high speed (B) high torque
  • Power: input voltage: 5-12V; dual on-board voltage regulators to deliver 5V and 3.3V.
  • Expansion: Audio jack; Screw terminals to connect 4 PWM (pulse width modulation) signals and power source; header pins to analog inputs (like sharp IR sensors)
  • I2C headers: to connect other I2C devices (like magnetometer)
