Welcome to Orionrobots
At Orionrobots, Danny builds robots, electronics, gadgets and stuff that moves. I get kids like my regular helpers Jonathan and Helena to join in, and occasionally others too. I aim to make some of the cool robotics things easy for anyone to build, and push the boundaries of what is easy. Oh and just to have lots of fun doing it too…
You can support my work at Orionrobots on Patreon where there are also previews, polls and other perks for supporters.

Learn Robotics Programming - Second Edition!
You can start making your own robot with the book Danny Staple has written on the subject. Learn Robotics programming takes a step-by-step approach to making and programming robots. The book shows how to do so using a Raspberry Pi and Python3.
Build a robot with ultrasonic sensors to detect distances, a camera for computer vision which it uses to sense coloured objects and drive towards them, or track faces and point its “head” at them. See how to write code to drive the robot with your phone, make it avoid walls, follow lines and make a voice recognition assistant to control the robot by speaking.
