We all love playing with robots!

But building them can be a bit challenging because there are so many wires to connect to control motors from Arduinos. Sometimes, it becomes a nightmare because of the fragile jumper wires. I've experienced this many times with my students.

So, my team and I decided to create a super child-friendly, plug-and-play motor that doesn't need bulky motor drivers or wires. This is the result:

Introducing the "Robomatics Gear Motor," which comes with an integrated motor driver and a USB-C connector. This design allows anyone, even young children, to plug it in easily!

The compact size and solid electrical connection make it easy for any beginner to start building robots with it. We still have one challenge, which is connecting the USB-C cable to Arduino. Luckily, there are many USB-C to DIP connectors to solve that!

You can find Arduino library and schematics in below git repos! All open source.
