Oribokit: Gardening for Robots introduces a new artscience-kit by Matthew Gardiner.

Oribokit™ is a democratized art science robotic origami kit, created to engage audiences in their homes and to encourage a more widespread expansion of Oribotic research. The kit allows you to make your own robotic garden at home. The assembled kit grafts onto a tree branch and is designed to minimise materials usage and maximise modular recyclability for robotic origami applications. Kits include 1,2 or 3 oribotic blossoms featuring easy to fold laser-cut paper, servo motors, drive wires, and Arduino compatible STM32 microcontroller plus open-source firmware.

Partipants in the oribokit™ workshops are guided by digital workshops, physical workshops in Melbourne and online instructional materials to fold, assemble and start their own oribotic garden. The project will run over several weeks to allow participants to join workshop timeslot suitable to their geographical location. Kits and workshop tickets can be purchased from https://oribokit.com
