Here are a few shots of our new Robot Workstations. Thanks to Peter for all of his work on getting these up and running!
The Kit includes a computer running freeDOS, special software, two stepper motors, a solderless breadboard, IC chips and other electronic bits, a custom connector cable and instructions on how to build your very own ROBOT!! All for only $50, mega cheap!
These kits are designed so that once you understand the basic concepts you may alter and customize your robot, you can add on more pieces, you can change the software, you can start breaking open old electronics and start building new creations from them... The world is your robotic oyster!
These are perfect for anyone looking to learn about electronics, computer science, and robotics in a real world way. You start with a real computer, you create real electronics from scratch, connect real motors and run real software to talk to them. There is no better way to learn all these concepts than to put them in motion (you can even make them sparkly like we did!)
To check out a working example station just come by the Scrap Exchange and see it in action!
