Robotical Knowledge Base & User Guides

Welcome to the Robotical knowledge base! These pages will help you get the most out of your Marty


Hello, I'm Marty!

I am a humanoid robot who was developed to make STEM learning fun and engaging for everyone! I am designed for educators and learners - I'm simple to use, incredibly robust and absolutely state of the art. I can walk, dance and eyebrow-wiggle like no other robot can!

I'm equipped with a unique walking mechanism, with 9 servo motors controlling my movements. This means I can turn, kick a ball and so much more, while also being more stable than many other walking robots.

Which Marty do you have?

This site has resources for both Marty v1 and Marty v2. The Original Marty v1 and the new Marty v2 look pretty similar, but they work very differently.

The easiest visual way to check if you have a v1 or a v2 is to look at the screws on the cross brace at the top of the leg.
