Ready to dive into robotics? Meet Sparki - He's a cute Arduino robot that's easy and fun to use!


Product #: MKAB2

Think robots are complicated? Think again! Sparki is an easy, affordable, feature-packed, open-source Arduino robot. He comes pre-programmed and ready to do your bidding with the included remote control. Ready to go to the next level? Load up the custom-enhanced Arduino software and choose from dozens of example programs, or write programs of your own and upload them to Sparki through the USB port.

Sparki comes with a bluetooth module, an array of onboard sensors, precise geared stepper motors, a motorized gripper and more. We even worked with Arcbotics (Sparki's Maker) to have him custom made in blue - just for you! Sparki is the perfect all-in-one package to get started in robotics.

Recommended for middle school ages or anyone who wants to dive into robotics with Sparki!

  • Ultrasonic distance sensor (get distance from Sparki to walls/objects)
  • 3-Axis Accelerometer (pick-up detection, fall detection, hill climbing)
  • 3-Axis Magnetometer (sense the magnetic field around Sparki, coordinate with accelerometer to detect compass heading)
  • 3x Light-sensing phototransistors (light following, darkness seeking)
  • 5x Line-following and edge detection sensors (mazes, line follow, sumo)
  • 128x64 Graphic LCD
  • RGB LED (RGB = generate any color!)
  • Buzzer (beeping, booping, and musical tones!)
  • IR Transmitter (like your TV remote control)
  • IR Receiver (like your TV)
  • IR Remote control (lots of buttons to control Sparki with)
  • TTL Serial port for expansion (talk to an Arduino/Raspberry Pi)
  • Bluetooth Serial Module
  • Powered by 4xAA batteries (not included)
  • 2x Geared stepper motors (precise, measured movement down to millimeters/ sub-degrees)
  • Marker holder for drawing:
