Hackable and 100% open-source

At the heart of MA-1 lies the RP2040 (Raspberry Pi Pico), the powerful microcontroller that brings this little robot to life. And here's the best part - we're not keeping the secrets to ourselves!

We're publishing our source code and design under a permissive open-source license. We believe that makers should be free to create and innovate without unnecessary restrictions, whether you're tinkering in your basement or building the next big thing.

Whether you want to reproduce our work for personal or commercial use, the choice is yours. With MA-1 and our open-source license, the possibilities are endless.

God mode

Ready to unleash the god-like powers of MA-1? It's as simple as flipping your little robot buddy upside down for about a minute - and voila! You're in control of everything.

Need to adjust the sensor thresholds or tweak the alarm settings? No problem - just connect MA-1 to your USB like a good old-fashioned flash drive and open up the settings file.

And if you're feeling extra creative, why not swap out MA-1's default emotions and animations with your own custom designs? All it takes is a few simple bitmap image replacements, and you'll have a robot that's truly one of a kind.

So go ahead, let your inner god out to play with MA-1 - the ultimate customizable companion!
