About this product


Complete and popular re-programmable robot kit
Built on a high-quality brushed aluminum chassis
 BASIC Stamp microcontroller flexibility of programming
RoHS Compliant

The Parallax Boe-Bot Robot Kit - Serial (with USB adapter and cable) is complete and popular re-programmable robot kit. The Parallax offers most complete, clear and interesting support for this kit. Over 90,000 Boe-Bot robots are used by hobbyists, educators and students around the world, which provides lots of feedback for improvements to this popular kit. You can view the improvements in the useful links section for an overview of what's new, or download the Robotics text to review documentation.

The Boe-Bot Robot is built on a high-quality brushed aluminum chassis that provides a sturdy platform for the continuous rotation servo motors and BASIC Stamp® module's Board of Education carrier board. Many mounting holes and slots may be used to add custom robotic equipment or off-the-shelf Parallax add-ons. The rear wheel is a slider ball held in place with a cotter pin. The drive wheels are molded to fit precisely on the servo spline and held in place with a small screw.

The Andy Lindsay's Robotics with the Boe-Bot text includes 41 activities for the Boe-Bot Robotics text with structured PBASIC 2.5 source code support and bonus challenges with solutions in each chapter. Starting with basic movement and proceeding to sensor-based projects, customers quickly learn how the Boe-Bot is expandable for many different robotic projects. No previous robotics, electronics or programming experience required while using these activities.

The BASIC Stamp microcontroller's flexibility of programming when coupled with breadboard circuit construction is the uniqueness of Boe-Bot unique. Along with this   the Boe-Bot users quickly learn about embedded projects, from wiring and components to programming and mechanical dependencies.

Note: Item contains a CdS cell photoresistor. The RoHS exemption request status for CdS cells is currently unclear; there are no RoHS-compliant exact replacement devices available.

The Boe-Bot Robot takes about 1-2 hours to put together, though each project in the Robotics text provides a unique new experience of wiring and source code tuning. Completing the entire set of projects takes 50 hours and is suitable for anybody over 12 years of age. The Board of Education (and BS2-IC) may also be removed to be used as your platform for the other kits in the Stamps in Class series.

After mastering the basics, Boe-Bot Robot accessories let you to branch into new activities, such as making your Boe-Bot talk with a speech board, adding infrared remote control, maze contests, line following, interfacing direction sensors, and using RF modules and video/camera equipment to build a Video-Bot. Boe-Bot accessories are all sold separately.
