Let's Make Robots!

New tutorial on how to make an Arduino robot

I posted this on the Facebook page, but thought I'd post it here as well.

I just finished writing an in-depth tutorial on how to make an Arduino-based robot. It's targeted towards beginners and should help someone completely new to robotics to build their first robot, but anyone making a robot with an Arduino will find it useful. Here's picture of the robot I make in the tutorial:

Arduino UNO Robotics Kit!

I finished putting together a new kit based on the Funduino UNO (Arduino UNO clone) and would love your feedback!


The kit is $69.95 and includes:

Stepper Motor & Driver Giveaway

I recently added some really nice stepper motors to my store and I thought I'd give one away along with a stepper motor driver for free!

Need a few people to help me write tutorials

I wasn't sure whether this should go in General Discussion or in Advertising, but just to be on the safe side (since technically it's kind of an "ad"), I'll post it in here (I also posted this on the LMR facebook group).

I'm looking for a few people to help me write tutorials. 

Making a basic Arduino robot tutorial

I'm working on putting together an inexpensive kit to help students build a basic Arduino robot (more on that here) and have been working on a tutorial: how to make an Arduino robot. It's a work in progress, but I was hoping to get feedback on the tutorial and see what you guys think. Any suggestions?

Help me design a starter robotics kit!

I'm planning on putting together an Arduino-based robotics kit and would like your input as to what should go in it. The kit should contain everything a student or hobbyist needs to make a basic robot. So far I've tentatively come up with the following:

1 x Arduino Compatible UNO R3
1 x 3ft USB cable
2 x SpringRC SM-S4303R Continuous Rotation Servo
1 x HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Distance Sensor
1 x 4-Pin Male to Female Cable
1 x Small Solderless Breadboard (400 contacts)
1 x Breadboard Jumper Wire Bundle (70-pack)
1 x 4" Black Nylon Zip-Ties

Check out my hobby electronics business - low cost electronics & robotics components

Hi everyone,

I'm a college student in the U.S. and recently started a small hobby electronics business. It's been a dream of mine for a long time and I'm excited to finally get it started! My goal is to provide students and hobbyists with low cost electronics and robotics components and kits, as well as electronics and programming tutorials.
