little 8 supplies
April 16, 2008
alright, so i've never actually built a robot before and all that, so i thought i'd look into starting with the little 8. however, none of the canadian/american online shops seem to carry either the 5V voltage regulator or the "bumper switches" mentioned in the materials. is there some other name for these, or some sort of acceptable substitute that can be found in one of the north american online stores? i checked the ones listed on the 'where to buy picaxe' page, and i'd rather not have to do the whole overseas shipping thing (for some reason it always turns out badly for me)
then again maybe i'm just being stupid and missing the listing in the stores.
