(9 customer reviews)



The iBoardbot is a robot connected to the internet capable of writing texts and drawing with great precision. Also, it can erase in a quick and effective way. Send to your iBoardbot your information from any part of the world. As it has a multi-user interface you can also play and challenge your kids, use it as a collaborative notice board or as a twitter wall in your shop window.


Take a look to a LIVE DEMO of the  iBoardbot control WebApp here*

  • Drawing mode: It can precisely draw what you assign to it. Different users will be able to collaborate with the drawing at the same time from different devices and world places. No matter how far the drawer is; the drawing precision will be as if the drawer himself was holding the pen with his hands


  • Graphics mode: Upload and draw your own graphics using the iBoardbot´s webAPP!


  • Text mode: Send any text. The iBoardbot will adjust it to the right size so it can fit on the board and it will draw it using its own font. Just type it and click/tap on SEND


  • IFTTT integrated: Why not send the subject of an email you just have received to the iBoardbot? Or use the iBoardbot as a Twitter wall? Or write the last SMS you have got? Or display the temperature of your home? the weather forecast maybe? The last tweet from your favourite music band? or… there are as many possibilities as possible recipes. Create your own recipe!

Product Description

The iBoardbot is a robot based on an Arduino board (atmega32u4) with a wifi module with the ability to connect to cloud services. When you write a text in the app or draw with your fingers, this information is sent to the servers (in the CLOUD) then, is processed (vectorization) and splitted into smaller packets of data that are sent to the iBoardbot in order to draw your message in almost real time.

There is a queue of pending tasks for every single robot in the server. The iBoardbot robot handles this queue, so you don´t need to wait to send new tasks!

This is a 2D drawing robot with a simple design and a great accuracy. It uses stepper motors, bearings and timing belts as its mechanical structure.

This “display robot” has an integrated eraser in the drawing header so you can wipe the board automatically and continuously send as many messages or graphics as you want! 

The Software/Code: We will provide an open API, so developers can easily make the most of it to generate powerful applications (a weather forecast display, wall info from your social networks, games…)

The iBoardbot firmware is open source and the server protocol isopen as well, so you can hack it to your needs or set up your own cloud services. Furthermore, we will provide (as we do with all our projects in JJRobots) “how it works” and technical documents so people can learn robotics with this project while having fun!

Control your iBoardbot using your smartphone/tablet


The iBoardbot robot shares almost all of its parts and 100% of its electronics with the B-robot EVO, the fastest -remotely controlled- Self Balancing robot. Create your own B-robot after assembling the iBoardbot!

    G-R-E-A-T robot. Funny and “hackeable” as much as you want. You have spent time designing it, I can see that.
