Unique industrial design, extremely compact

  • Integrated design, the structure of the robot arm is compact, and the net weight is only 850g, super convenient to carry
  • Modular design, few spare parts, low maintenance cost, quick disassembly, and replacement, realizing plug and play


High configuration, with Lego interface

  • Contains 6 high-performance servo motors, fast response, small inertia, smooth rotation
  • The base and the end of the cobot are equipped with Lego component interfaces, easier for the development of various micro-embedded equipment

Track Recording & Learn by hand

Get rid of the traditional point saving mode, myCobot supports drag trial teaching to record the saved track and can save up to 60mins different Tracks making it easy and fun for beginners to learn robotic arms.


How to control myCobot Pi?

  • Learn by Hand: Get rid of the traditional point saving mode, myCobot supports drag trial teaching to record the saved track and saves up to 60mins different tracks making it easy and fun for new players to learn.
  • You can use the digital pins on the robot to make it communicate with other devices.
  • With Myblockly, our free desktop application uses blocks to create your own robotic programs. Based on Blockly (similar to Scratch), our visual programming interface allows you to quickly and easily create robotic programs without any prior programming knowledge. You can also use RoboFlow, our software for industrial robots.
  • Advanced Users: develop your own controller (use a computer mouse, a keyboard, a game controller or Leap Motion to control myCobot according to your preferences and needs), use our API (PythonC++C#Javascript) to control myCobot directly or remotely or dive directly into the ROS code, which is open-source.
