Tiny 4WD is small but powerful robot that you build yourself. Unlike many other small robots, Tiny can be used outside on the patio, deck, playground even gravel paths/drives. The first Tiny was designed for the MagPi magazine “How to build a Pi Wars Robot” feature written by Brian Corteil. The kit contains all you need to build the chassis including our Raspberry Pi camera face plate , great for computer vision projects plus a Pimoroni Explorer pHat to drive the four motors powering the large grippy wheels. The kit also includes a mini breadboard for adding sensors and help supply power to the motors.
The Standard Tiny 4WD robot kit is collated by Pimoroni and uses stock parts from their great collection of maker kit. The "East Coast Customs" is based upon the standard kit, with some modifications to make our great robot even better.
The East Coast Customs chassis has fixing holes for the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, as well as the Zero, you can use any 40 pin Raspberry Pi with The East Coast Customs chassis. All the East Coast Customs chassis are cut by our head meat bag Brian. The next upgrade is straight headers on the motors, and gives more room for a larger power pack.
Colours and Materials
More stealth than bling, the finish is matte and does not show finger prints!
You can't miss the glowing edges of Atomic Green, makes a robot that stands out.
Woody is the lightest chassis and is cut from 3mm laser ply, because the wood is unsealed you can apply any colour you wish.
Made from Translucent Perspex that has caught the smoke from a bonfire on a autumn evening
