Node Bots are bots that use Arduino open source electronics and can be programmed with a Node.js api. Why node? Node is a very popular javascript library that allow to run javascript on the server. It is lightweight modular and have a huge ecosystem.

Bots are traditionally coded using the C language. But javascript is now much more popular that C. So node bots provide a javascript API to code bots is a way to make the development of such system more popular and grow a bigger community.

In open source, the size of the community and the simplicity of starting is key to user adoption.

Did you try Node bots? Or more generally Arduino open source electronics?
