Piel is a Plush Robot Manufactured with high volume 3D Printing to teach Kids STEM
Teddy robotics is a robotics startup that began as a senior Project in 2017. After several years and several robots later, they have launched Piel, a STEM robot for learning programming. While Piel is very unique for its plush exterior. Underneath it is a sofisticated robot that is composed of 3D Printed Components.
Piel is currently on Kickstarter if you would like to support the project.
Teddy Robotics will be working with Slant 3D to manufacture the Piel using high volume 3D Printing.
Composed of several complex 3D Plastic pieces, injection molding would have been far to expensive for the young startup. The combination of crowdfunding and 3D Printing allows them to quickly and efficiently launch an entirely new product.
Piel is a perfect example of a product that might not have been created if production 3D printing did not exist. The team at Teddy robotics have been able to prototype the design, and when complete the prototype can go directly into production. There are fewer intermediary steps between the idea and an actual product for consumers.
