Shellmo was this cool little robot i saw on thingiverse a long time ago https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:208495 (if you haven't seen it check it out, its very cool) I was working with the creator on making a mainboard for shellmo, i think he ended up going with a different design, but i had a lot of fun working on this with him on it.
It was basically an arduino nano with bluetooth, and 2 dual h-bridge motor drivers and some voltage stuff.
I did the design in kicad, i've included a google drive link to all the files, libraries, footprints, silk screen stuff i used along the way.
There's some reference to a webstore that never existed in the silk screens that the parts were going to be distributed through.
This is the pin mapping
Link to google drive folder with all the files:
Here are some of the concept renderings i did of how it would integrate into shellmo (the heart was a required design feature :)
The heart is sho's design the breadboard i just got from grabcad if i recall the other stuff was my work
