Can the Arduino UNO board be used in a kit?

If I were to make robot kits that would be sold online, can I use the Arduino UNO board as the robot's brain? Can the board be resold in a kit? Thanks!

Best robot chassis

Was wondering what you guys thought the best "chassis" for robot development was.  Not looking for electronics or a "kit" but just a platform with wheels (or legs or whatever).  I like the idea of doing my own electronics (processors, sensors, power systems, etc.) and could/would eventually build my own from component parts, but I like the speed of starting with known motor/wheels/platform that are well matched and robust.  I have already fried a servo trying to start with that.  I also figure that by the time I bought motors, plexiglass, wheels, etc.

Hi all, would any one need PCBs/parts cut using my machine?

It looks like my CNC is finished and ready to do stuff, so I was wondering if could make some money out of it.

Stuff I could fabricate:

I should be able to use the machine to fabricate the following stuff:

- PCBs made with Eagle up to the maximum size allowed with the free version - I'm still working on the details but I'm sure I'll get it to do this properly, first tests look promising

I remembered that I was sweating for weeks about what should I have for a power supply circuit. However, I came accross this and all of my worries vanished. … Read more

Awesome.....so it begins....

Has anybody put together a starting kit of parts for the basic picaxe robot???

That would be really helpful, and probably help get a lot more folks started....what an awsome site!

thanx...
