When it comes to robot construction it usually requires makers to source the parts individually, but the 'PurpleKit' construction kit packs everything required. Launched on Kickstarter, the 'PurpleKit' is the work of Francisco Juretig and allows users to create various systems using the components in the kit.

As one would expect, making a robot is no easy feat; designing the unit, sourcing the parts and programming everything can take a long time. The 'PurpleKit' robot construction kit helps to cut down on guesswork and prepare beginner engineers for their fire forays into robotics development. Being that maker culture is showing little sign of slowing down, the 'PurpleKit' is a formalized way for makers to continue DIYing without having to feel overwhelmed.
