Five free Insect Bot Mini kits
November 29, 2013
This is a free (well, it does not cost money) giveaway of 5 Insect Bot Mini kits.
All 5 kits are gone now, please do not request anymore but you still can comment :-)
UPDATE Jan. 3rd: Please refer to the wiki to check for the right color orientation on the sensor cabel and the silk screen error on the Beetle shield.
UPDATE Dec. 26th: Finally all five Insect bot mini kits were shipped by last week. They should arrive within the next three weeks but be patience since the Christmas rush will affect the post services around the world.
UPDATE Dec. 11th: Unfortunately the shipping of the insect bot mini kits is delayed. We had a run in the store and the first batch is already sold out. We wanted to ship the kits first to the people who ordered them, so you guys still need to wait a little longer. Sorry about that, it seems that you will not get them before Christmas. Shipping will be with Hong Kong Post and I will update this post when they are on their way.
You might have doubts because there is never something for free in this world and you are right. The term free only refers to “no money involved” but it's not entirely free. Why not? Yeah, I'll tell you what you have to endure to get one of these Insect Bot Mini kits delivered to your doorstep.
Ok, here is the deal. DFRobot will send you one (1) Insect Bot Mini Kit for free and you will write a review. That's all.
the review must contain more than 500 English words
the review must contain pictures and video(s) of the assembling process and the final result
the review should (if you are going to do so) contain your code
the review must be posted on letsmakerobots.com OR another website of your choice (posting is somewhere else you still need to post a short version here on LMR since you've got this kit because you are an LMRian)
If you want one, then please post your request below this blog entry. But hey, do not just write "I want one" but write something nice/cool which tells me that you are a worthy LMRian :-) Simple rule, first come first serve.
But wait, there is another hurdle. To give all the guys/gals in different time zones the chance to request one Insect Bot Mini kit the comment with your request must be posted after Sat, 2013-11-30 17:00 (UTC/GMT +8 hours) -> 24 hours after the posting of that blog. That is my time zone and I will choose the entries whit the right time stamp. Check the time stamp in the comment i just made. All comments before that date will be ignored.
Please read the first comment in the very bottom.
