Marty v2 - Robot Description
Marty is a proper Walking Robot with Legs & Feet — With 9 Servo Motors and a handful of built-in sensors, Marty has a much more interesting way of moving than just rolling around!
Movement: Walking, Dancing, Turning, Kicking. Marty's unique leg design makes a swagger like no other Robot.
What is Marty?
Marty is a real robot designed to help teach coding to kids, for the price of a smart toy. Marty comes as a kit or pre-built, so you can either choose the fun of building a robot, or to just jump straight-in to playing and coding with your new walking robot companion.
Marty is Wi-Fi enabled and with nine individually controllable servo motors. You can use our app to remote control Marty, and add a bunch of sensors to react to the environment — Marty can walk, turn, dance, even kick a football!
Marty is supported by fun and engaging online tutorials and a fast-growing and inquisitive community. Every Marty the Robot comes with a 2 year warranty, and we're always here to support and help.
Marty the Robot makes learning about coding, electronics, and engineering a fun, challenging and engaging process. Designed to be customisable robot with 3D printed parts, Marty is also completely upgradeable — you can even add a Raspberry Pi and a camera to Marty's head!
All packs include everything you need to build and program your very own Marty, including a screwdriver, rechargeable battery and USB charger.

With moving arms and changing expressions to complement this swagger, Marty is a robot with character.
