Nybble is probably the lightest and fastest robotic cat in the world that really walks. Its motion is driven by an Arduino compatible micro-controller. It stores instinctive “muscle memory” to move around. An optional AI chip, such as Raspberry Pi can be mounted on top of Nybble’s back, to help Nybble with perception and decision. You can program in your favorite language, and direct Nybble walk around simply by sending short commands, such as “walk” or “turn left”!
Nybble is a kitten. Though lightweight in both hardware and software, Nybble is an optimized version from the grown-up OpenCat. And it doesn’t eat as much.
Nybble is based on the OpenCat framework to be covered in later paragraphs. The wooden frame is a retro design in honor of its popstick framed ancestor.
