So its that special time of the year for many families around the world. We decided to build a learning robot kit for Christmas, we think it makes for an ideal gift for anyone wanting to learn about robotics. This is a DIY remote control robot kit. This kit is ideal for anyone from beginner to expert. The kit includes an electronic assembly guide along with wiring diagrams and sample codes. For those of you who don’t like reading the manual, great! We encourage you to take these components and make your own version of the Christmas Rover. Since this robot kit is DIY and based on Open Source hardware, its easy to modify for your own projects; add or remove sensors depending on what you want to achieve with your new robot.
This robot kit comes with 3 infrared sensors, 1 ultrasonic sensor, 1 IR receiver and IR Control, 1 Bluetooth module, our wildly popular Romeo microcontroller (Arduino compatible); which is ideal for robotics since it comes with an integrated motor controller, and of course the above pictured 4WD robot platform, wheels and all!
This will make a great Christmas gift for that special geek in your life. Check out the video below for some Christmas Rover action!
