The Boe-Bot Robot Kit is an educational kit complete with parts and a textbook for building and programming your own Boe-Bot robot. No previous robotics, electronics, or programming experience is required.
If you think one robot is interesting, wait until you see two of them battling for control, Sumo-style. The SumoBot Robot Competition Kit is an educational kit that includes two texts and parts to make two competition-ready robots that comply with the Northwest Robot Mini-Sumo Tournament rules, the standard for many mini-sumo competitions. These little pushers will locate and knock their opponents right out of the ring while detecting the edge of the ring should an escape move be necessary.
Snap Circuits Jr. 100-in-1 includes over 30 plastic parts and over 100 sample projects. The snap-together electronic blocks are mounted on plastic pieces that can be used again and again to form many exciting and educational circuits.
Snap Circuits 300-in-1 includes over 55 plastic parts and over 300 sample projects. The snap-together electronic blocks are mounted on plastic pieces that can be used again and again to form many exciting and educational circuits.
Snap Circuits 500-in-1 includes over 65 plastic parts and over 500 sample projects. The snap-together electronic blocks are mounted on plastic pieces that can be used again and again to form many exciting and educational circuits.
The RC Snap Circuits Rover is a mobile, radio-controlled Snap Circuits platform. Build the 23 included projects and create many of your own circuits with the ample circuit-building space on top of this four-wheeled chassis. The included manual has projects that explore the fundamentals of circuit design and radio control.
If you’ve never soldered before but want to explore the world of robotics and electronics, this kit is for you! The kit includes diagonal cutters, a soldering iron, and lead-free solder.
A digital multimeter (DMM) is one of the most useful tools for any electronics or robotics enthusiast; with this kit, you can build your own!
Learn about electronic motion detectors with this deluxe kit that includes a high-quality enclosure with a mounting bracket. The motion detector makes a loud, doorbell-like “ding-dong” sound when it detects motion. The kit is based on a pyroelectric infrared (PIR) sensor, which is a unique sensor that you can use to give your projects the ability to react to your presence.
Build your own advanced humanoid robot with the Bolide Y-01 DIY kit from XYZrobot. Its 18 A1-16 smart servos allow it to perform a wide range of complex movements, including dancing, walking, and the ability to get up off the ground, and it is preprogrammed to perform such movements in response to commands from the included Bluetooth controller or a smartphone or tablet running the XYZrobot app. The Bolide also features an Arduino-compatible microcontroller and sensors, so you can program it to perform new and interactive or autonomous behaviors.
Build your own advanced robotic arm with this 6 DOF Robotic Arm Kit from XYZrobot. It features six A1-16 smart servos that are capable of sophisticated kinematics positioning control while lifting payloads up to 700 g (1.5 lb). Free motion editing software is available for configuring the arm to move in response buttons on the base, a smartphone or tablet running the XYZrobot app, or a Bluetooth controller (not included). The arm also features an Arduino-compatible microcontroller, so you can integrate your own sensors and program it to have new and interactive or autonomous behaviors.
The OWI-535 Robotic Arm Edge Kit is a remote-controlled robotic arm kit with five degrees of freedom, a 3.5oz (100g) lifting capacity, and an LED light. Using five motors with gearboxes, the Edge has a 120° wrist motion, a 300° elbow motion, a 180° shoulder motion, a 270° base motion, and a 0-1.77" (0-4.5cm) gripping motion.
If you have been thinking about getting your own mini sumo robot but were waiting for the right kit to come along, we might just have the one for you! No programming is necessary to get the Sumovore going: it has a sumo wrestling mode and a line following mode, and assembly is easy with the step-by-step instructions written just for beginners. This robot outperforms many other robots, even in its standard configuration, and there are options to expand on its basic capabilities.
The line-tracking mouse is an excellent, low-cost robot for someone who has previous soldering experience and would like to get started with robots. This kit features two independent gearboxes, two printed circuit boards, a plywood base, and a clear, mouse-shaped body.
This kit is a low-cost implementation of the common introductory robot that backs up and turns when it hears a sound or hits an obstacle. The kit is quite basic, but because the instructions do not provide soldering instructions, we recommend this kit for someone who has completed at least one previous soldering project.
