Robot Construction Kits can be distinguished from normal robot kits since they use modular parts and allow you to assemble different robots using the same parts. A robot kit on the other hand only allows you to build one robot. Robot construction kits are a great investment because they tend to include everything you need […]

It has been a few years since RobotShop released the original DFRobotShop Rover, and we continue to be amazed and delighted with what people are using them to do. Recently German researchers used the DFRobotShop Rover as well as additional parts (light sensor, camera, software) to mimic the simple nervous system of an insect (using […]

We’re always curious what our customers do with the parts they purchased. Dimitri Dekyvere was kind enough to share a video of the versatile LEGO robot he created using the new EV3 construction system along with LEGO compatible Mecanum wheels. The M3CANUM DOG is a very compact, 4WD Mecanum driven robot with sensor feedback, able […]

Lynxmotion has recently released two new wheeled rover kits based on this principle: the A4WD2-KT and the A6WD2-KT. The new rovers were […]

The Brewster robot came to our attention via the RobotShop Forum. User robmcc hacked an older model Roomba, some servo motors, and what looks like a complex and custom-made mechanical rig to fetch and transport a can of beer.

Videos are one of the best ways to get a good understanding of a product. This set of seven videos include unboxing / package contents of the SES V1.1, […]

Most three and four wheel drive omnidirectional robots cost $500 and up and are usually intended for the research rather than the hobbyist market. For those who have the knowledge to design and build their own omniwheel driven robot, matching all the parts can be a daunting task: finding the right motors, sourcing the wheels, […]
