RoboGuts™ circuit board + 3D printed plastic parts + lessons that include a wiring diagram and program listing + end chapter projects lets beginners and students spend their time learning the basics of technology and manufacturing so they can use to innovate and create new products.

Anybody anywhere in any language around Earth and beyond can learn the fundamentals of manufacturing learning some basic electronics and completing the circuit on a real circuit board that can be used in almost any project you can dream up using almost any computer chip or module you want to use for your project. Then learning the BASIC language and c language programming while your 3D plastic parts are printing you learn about different components, sensors, motors, how to program using phonemes to have your project talk back to you in your own language be it English, Japanese, Chinese, Hindu, beeps 'n pops 'n clicks etc...

Programming lessons show how to write library functions and use them in structured programming style so you learn how to program at the highest quality programming style that makes programming projects so much easier.

Finally, after the 3D plastic parts are printed you learn how to finish the parts, trimming and painting then assembling the projects so you learn how to design for 3D printing and easy assembly of new projects you dream up later.

  • 1 × RoboGuts™ circuit board The RoboGuts™ circuit board is smaller than an Arduino UNO but has the ability to host almost any MCU chip and includes a SpeakJet chip and mono audio amplifier socket. and using the FREE software you can teach your projects to talk and sing in any language.

  • More 40W soldering tips in the mail

    Yes, I ordered a bunch of soldering tips for the new 40W soldering pen (I was using a 30W pen, but it choked on soldering connector pins in the large ground plane on the RoboGuts™ circuit boards.  

    I should be able to keep up with sales with this first batch of boards ... and hope I can get the next batch soldered in a wave solder machine.  

  • Learning new things about soldering

    Hi,  In the process of using the new lead free solder so that the RoboGuts™ circuit boards are 100% RoHS compliant I found out that the soldering pen tips wear out about 100x faster than when using lead.  

    I've gone though trying several different soldering pens and after a little research online I find that it's the reactions during the soldering that cause the iron on the tips to move into the soldering joint.

    Initial Powering of the RoboGuts™ circuit board ...


    I've created several images showing various ways to power the RoboGuts™ circuit boards.  

    Standard 9V radio battery power:  

    4.5V Power from 3 AA cells 

    a 6V source such as 4-AA cells;  

    Got a LiPo battery pack?  2P = 7.4V or 3P = 11.1V works well with the RoboGuts™ circuit boards;  

    The board will work from 3V to 12V depending upon the MCU chip or module selected, my demonstrations are with the PICAXE 28X2 module which has its own voltage regulator onboard, but cannot supply too much power for big projects, but is great for building the miniFloppyBots or a BillyBot ... 

    Find all sorts of info about powering the RoboGuts™ circuit boards in the "Teacher Notes" on the lesson page:

    How to use the lesson pages ...


    The lesson pages ( are setup for anybody to use ... all you have to do is look at a lesson image, put jumper wires on your RoboGuts™ circuit board exactly as you see them in the lesson image.  Once you are sure your board is properly powered and the lesson jumpers are correct then click on the lesson image to reveal the lesson BASIC language programming code.  Copy the code, then paste it into the FREE programming editor ( and program your MCU to perform the lesson.  

    Next, you can experiment with the lesson by changing which PIN is connected to the component and making the appropriate change in the BASIC Language program (e.g., move the jumper wire from PIN B.1 to maybe PIN B.7 change the program code from "symbol LED = B.1" to "symbol LED = B.7"  and see the lesson function again.)
