Matrix Launches Formula AllCode Kickstarter Campaign (sponsored)

Matrix TSL has launched a Kickstarter campaign for its Formula AllCode robotics course, which features a high-specification, Bluetooth-enabled robot. You can program the robot via Python, AppBuilder, Flowcode, Matlab, LabVIEW, C, and more. It is compatible with Raspberry Pi, Android, iPhone, and Windows devices.AllCodeKickstarter

KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN

Formula AllCode is a platform for both novice or advanced electronics enthusiasts to learn and test their robotics skills. Participate in the campaign: Formula AllCode

The funds raised from this Kickstarter project will allow Matrix to take the current prototype development shown in the project videos to the next level with a technical specification to beat any other like-for-like robot buggy and subsequent manufacture of 1000 units to be launched world-wide.

By backing the  Kickstarter campaign, you are supporting a project which allows users to develop their robotics understanding on a platform of their choice. Whether your starting out with your first robotics project or you’re a fully fledged robotics developer, the Formula AllCode will work for you. The project must be funded by Sunday, September 6, 2015.AllCodeSpecs
