  • DFRobotShop Rover V2 - Arduino Compatible Tracked Robot (Basic Kit)
    Versatile Platform
    Review by Jacob
    As my first foray into robotics, this platform was a fantastic choice. It's well-constructed, sturdy, and uses a lot of standards. Being based on an Arduino Uno with plenty of expansion ports like the XBee sockets gives it a ton of flexibility. To mine, I added an ultrasonic sensor, a temperature and humidity sensor, and a security camera. I highly recommend the available expansion plate if you want to affix anything to the top of your rover.

  • VEX IQ Super Kit
    A big improvement but *almost* everything
    Review by Raymond
    I've used the "classic" Vex Robotics Design System, Mindstorms RIS, NXT and EV3 and some others like Multiplo. The Vex IQ is a big step forward from the classic VEX and has some nice and unique pieces and mechanically it's hard to beat. The only shortcoming is a narrow range of sensors, some of the other lines have a wider assortment and they're really not expensive enough to warrant omitting them.

  • DFRobotShop Rover V2 - Arduino Compatible Tracked Robot (Basic Kit)
    Excellent
    Review by Wade
    This is very easy and simple to put together and can do a lot depending on the sensors and components you add to it. A great robot to play around with!

  • DFRobotShop Rover V2 - Arduino Compatible Tracked Robot (Basic Kit)
    Very cool
    Review by Dwayne
    Very nice to put together. The arduino is very easy to program. I can't wait to put a shield and some sensors on it. I think I stretched one of the treads putting it together so I am ordering a few more sets.

Robot Construction Kits

Posted on April 23, 2014

By Coleman Benson & filled under GoRobotics >> Education, Robotics Projects & Kits, Where to Start.

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 [...]

All Sciences Lead to Robotics

Posted on March 12, 2013

By Mario Tremblay & filled under Industry.

Ever since the stories of Isaac Asimov, robotics had long been restricted to the imagination. Although it had been unclear in the past, the present state of technology shows that robotics has become a tangible reality. The evolution of robotics follows the same course that was once followed by the evolution of the PC and computers. [...]

If this is for the national type of high school robot comptition, you might want to post up some links to show what what is involved (some local schools enter this each year). The 2 oz 15" object sounds like the balls they have to pick up. How high is the tube off the floor?
