Yogy the robot puts the power of Arduino in the hands of kids

Yogy, an Arduino-based obstacle avoidance robot from Instructables user Jaidyn Edwards (chickenparmi) might look like an empty yogurt container with eyes...but that’s only because it is.

We’ve featured plenty of Arduino projects in the past, but this is one of the first made specifically as a toy for kids. Yogy is designed to be easier to construct than similar kits found elsewhere, and it could be a great first project for a child and their parents to work on together.

Jaidyn has included the code files for obstacle avoidance as well, so no coding is required on your part. Best of all, if reading isn’t your thing, he has also provided instructional videos to show you how to build your own Yogy.
