Capabilities of the Databot™ ...

Databot™ is built on Arduino and will show up as an ESP-32 in the Arduino software. You are further able to change its behaviour using the software. MicroPython can be loaded onto it and hardware-level commands can be taken using the complete technical details, pinouts, and sensor data sheets provided.

The Databot™ is a great tool for physical computing and can be coded to respond to sensor data. It will flash the brilliant LEDs and squawk, beep, and chortle using the onboard tone generator. It simply is the best way to begin a journey into coding and robotics with one simple device.

*Note that the Databot™ in the video is the older version.
