Alpy (Educational Robot) by Levent Muslular
2018 - 2019, Golden A' Baby, Kids' and Children's Products Design Award Winner
Inspired by the idea of making an educational robot which will be an abstract perception in order to give more free space for being creative.
Alpy presents a novel approach and combines the functionalities of a complete STEAM kit with the attraction of a robot. The product can easily be transformed from a basic physically programmed robot towards an autonomous intelligent robot. The platform customization is handled through opaque, transparent, rigid or function specific modules with common interfaces. The components can easily be altered via the user due the robust inherent design and requires no soldering or special tools.
Design Challenges
The main challenge was optimizing the dimensions and weight of Alpy, because it should be easy to hold by children safely. Customization without changing inner chassis was very tough.
Production Technology
Outer plates of Alpy are made of acrylic plates, which are made by CNC laser cutting. Inner chassis is made of two identical aluminum parts. Communication of Alpy and mobile device is via Bluetooth.
