Curiosity Replica (1:5 scale). Author: Carlos Sicilia Til
Have you ever wanted to try your inventions or experiments on Mars? Would you like to experiment with measurements taken on the Martian surface?
OpenCuriosity is an open source, exomars rover (1:5 scale) with arduino as main controller, based on the NASA Curiosity rover. It contains a set of Arduino boards and sensors. The general public will be allowed to use these Arduinos and sensors for their own creative purposes while they are in space. All the people will be allowed to integrate their project in the robot, and the data gathered will be available on the internet in order to share this information with the general public for educational, science or other purposes.
We want to provide affordable space exploration for everyone!
