Getting Started

So you've got a Marty - that's pretty cool! But what now? Well, if you bought a Marty kit you'll need to build and calibrate it, then follow the rest of the steps.

If you've got an Assembled Marty you just need to set up the WiFi & calibrate.

If you have a Class or Edu Pack (with its own snazzy wifi solution),  you can skip all these steps and jump straight to Using Marty!

First Time Setup


This online build guide has loads more detail, and videos to show you exactly how to build your Marty.

Skip this if your Marty is already built!


There are two ways to connect to Marty - connecting him to your WiFI network, or using direct connect to control him without external WiFi.

If you got an assembled education set, your Martys should already be set up!


Walking is tricky. Make sure your Marty's joints are in alignment to get the best balance possible!

What Next?

Once you have an assembled and calibrated Marty you can control over WiFi, you're ready to get onto the really fun stuff!

If you ever need to change Marty to a different WiFi network, have a look again at the WiFi instructions. Normally though, once your Marty is connected to your WiFi network, you won't need to go near the WiFi settings again!

Have a look at the Play section to see how you can remote control your Marty, then...

Head across to the Using Marty section to get started programming and expanding your Marty, and check out the activities below.
