Designing Your Own Custom ESP32 Powered Adventure Robot!
As many of you guys know, we had an absolute blast updating and launching our brand new Rover Robotics Kit. The entire process of designing a custom robot can be a little intimidating, but it can also be so much fun! In this tutorial, we'll go through the process that we here at ACBR go through when we design one of our robots! You can always pick up one of our bots in our shop, but this guide is for those who may be interested in customizing the Rover, and making one of their own!
The Rover Robotics Kit can be purchased here!
As always we have a video version of this post that can be found on our YouTube Channel, as well as linked below!
