Hello Zowi

We have been good boys during the year, and the three kings (like Santa on Spain) have took us a zowi robot. The educational BQ robot created with open hardware and open software.

On this website we will try to collect all the available technical  information, and projects around this device. Moreover we will try to go further and understand the internals and develop more complex projects than the original standard educational project for kids.

This is the BQ page for Zowi.
This is the Zowi support page, you can download Zowi instructions, and Zowi Unassembling guide.

Zowi is based on BOB, the original project, you can read more info at:
