Building a qBot

This tutorial will take you through the steps of building your own qBot. Make sure you have a look at the required components and tools/equipment before you start.

Your first qBot project

This tutorial will take you though the process of programming your first qBot sketch. 

It involves downloading the Arduino library for qBot, and using it to run a "Hello world" sketch.

Bill of Materials

These are the things you need in order to build a qBot! This page shows you where to get a hold of all the required components that makes up the qBot.

Depending on how long you can manage to wait, we have suggested various dealers. Some which deliver quickly, but cost a bit more. And a bunch of eBay alternatives :)

DISCLAIMER: The list will be updated from time to time, there is a risk that some things are outdated, sold out or discontinued with the different dealers. But we will try to provide options as quickly as possible.
