You can download everything you need to make it work – including assembly instructions and software – from it Github. The European Space Agency estimates that most people will cost around 500 euros (roughly $ 600) to purchase all of the materials and ingredients needed to make ExoMy. It will also take you about 2 weeks to 3D print the whole thing. “We focused on making the design as affordable and accessible as possible. It uses a Raspberry Pi computer and electronic parts are available online and in any hobby store,” the agency explains.

If $ 600 is outside your budget, you can watch ExoMy in action thanks to a video shared by ESA. The agency says it hopes college students will use the design as a way to learn about robots and the ExoMars mission.
