The iBoardbot is a robot connected to the internet (using the ESP8266 ESP12) capable of writing texts and drawing with great precision. Also, it can erase in a quick and effective way. Send to your iBoardbot your information from any part of the world. As it has a multi-user interface you can also play and challenge your kids, use it as a collaborative notice board or as a twitter wall in your shop window. Have fun and enjoy learning how to assemble your iBoardbot!

The iBoardbot is able to reproduce what you remotely draw using its web application from any part of the world and any device: a laptop, a smartphone or a tablet. From a web app that can be shared, the user will find the necessary apps for the control of the board. You will be able to draw, write a text of your choice (even from the other side of the world!) and to accessthe iBoardbot´s configuration menu . This drawing robot can be used at the same time by as many users as you want.
This robot, with its open API for developers will allow anyone to make the most of its possibilities. E.g.: Writing Tweets with a specific Hashtag, displaying motivational quotes, showing the weather forecast in your city, ifttt recipes, thelatest reviews about your shop or your company... So much opportunity, so many possibilities!

Arduino Leonardo
Using ESP8266 802.11 b/g/n WIFI module
Materials: Glass, PLA plastic,rubber, stainless steel and anodized aluminium

#43278 This would be fun to build. Is it open source? ( do you have a list of materials/code?)

Out of curiosity,was it not possible to power everything with the esp? Wondering why there's both an arduino and an esp in there? :)

#43695 HI Woodat!
Yes, it is completely OPEN SOURCE. We will post all the info as soon as possible (still working on the assembly instructions :mrgreen: )
We wanted to use the same electronics we have used for other ESP8266 controlled robots on this iBoardbot. Just to allow people to create different robots with the same items. Other robots controlled with the ESP8266:
Self balancing robot:
Remotely controlled Laser Pointer:
