Simple python interface to control the mebo toy robot

Project description


Mebo is a python package to control the Mebo Robot with Python. It is currently in active development, so there might be breaking changes. Some basic usage is defined below, but more extensive documentation is available at ReadTheDocs.


This project is not associated with the official Mebo project or its owners, Skyrocket LLC.


This package and the associated modules have been tested on Mebo version 1 only.


pip install mebo


Some basic usage is below. The API will change and limited documentation exists, but it works for getting started.

from mebo import Mebo
m = Mebo(auto_connect=True) # discover and connect automatically!
m.move('n', speed=255, dur=1000)  # move forward at max speed for 1 second
m.arm.up(dur=1000) # move the arm up for one second # open the claw for one second



  • python >= 3.6

To get started with the project:

git clone
python -m venv mebo-venv
. mebo-venv/bin/actvate
pip install -r requirements.txt
pip install -e .

To run the tests:

pip install -r test_requirements.txt


  • [ ] Cleaner API (better subclasses, kwargs for component methods, no metaprogramming)
  • [ ] Clean up kwargs inconsistency
  • [ ] Better documentation
  • [ ] Better tests
  • [ ] Media stream (multithreading or asyncio, http with <video> tag)
