Ordered all the parts in "How to make your first robot"
June 25, 2008
I ordered them 2 days ago, I hope i didnt miss anything. it took me about 5 hours to read up and make absolutely sure i knew what i was buying. took me long because i was also comparing prices.
i had no tools so i bought them too. the 3 stores i used were pololu, sparkfun and hobby engineering. The whole "first robot" package if you have absolutely nothing, is realistically about $170 (includes tax and shipping)
Seems everyone else got other cool stuff like treads, sonic sensors. etc. I hope i can re-use the parts i got in tandem with some better parts when its time to make robot number 2
