Robotics built with fischertechnik 
Here, my robotics activities will be published/pictured. In my blog I tell what I actually do, so check it each week. All videos can be found directly on my YouTube channel and links to the videos and event pictures are grouped on the video page. If you want to be informed when a video is published, please subscribe to my Youtube channel and/or follow me on Twitter and Instagram.

Various robots

My robot software for Mirft, Mydfir and Hand is written in Python using this API.
The software on Discovery and Mirft2 are written in Python using ftrobopy which can be downloaded from here.
