Construct the following robot:

This example demonstrates how to make a simple social robot which is triggered by motion in the view of the camera.


  • Dongle
  • Two Fable joint modules
  • Two 4XY passive modules
  • Phone holder module
  • Smartphone running the Fable Face App


The program uses the camera on the PC. If a certain amount of motion is found the robot will smile with its eyes, make a laughing sound and will start to move its arms up and down. This continues for as long as there is movement in the view of the camera.

If no movement, the robot will take its arms down by the side and make a tired face.
