Beta request are now closed

We have already received many very interesting beta requests from researchers, fab-labs and educational projects. Currently there is about 60 projects involved in the beta test. This period will permit the consolidation of the building procedure and the setting up of social tools for the community thanks to the beta testers feedback.

From now on, we encourage you to follow the build of the different poppy projects on our new wiki page POPPY MAKERS

Poppy project aims at building an open-source platform by providing the source both for hardware and software so you can assemble your own robot. Poppy is in a beta stage as there is still work to do to make it more accessible and easy-to-use. You can keep in touch and subscribe to the newsletter waiting for the fully open release hopefully next summer!
