  • 300mm F/F 20 Pin Jumper Wire (Splittable)
    Just what I needed ...
    Review by Claude
    Ever had to go pin to pin, well these jumpers wil let you connect pin to pin. Socket (female) to pin (male)? no problem, just stick pin to pin connector wire in one of the sockets of these jumpers and you have yourself a pin to socket jumper. These jumpers are 300 mm (almost 12 inches), that long, but better yet you can stick a pin to pin jumper at both ends an get a really long pin to pin jumper. Love all the colours too!

  • Arduino Uno USB Microcontroller Rev 3
    Great product
    Review by TehWan
    Good construction, does what it is intended to do. I thought it was possible to change the MCU, but I haven't been able to remove it and dare not to use too much strength either, though it seems possible. Just like any Arduino product, plug and play. Works great, but quite sensitive to short circuits, be careful. I had to plug in an external programmer to save a board.

  • Big Easy Driver Bipolar Motor Controller v2
    Does the job
    Review by amir
    this driver did an excellent job by driving a 2A stepper motor (though, not to it's maximum torque due to heating issues).
    be careful when turning the potentiometer to increase the power to deliver to the motor, it can burn the driver, I personally burned two drivers.
    good complete documentation.

  • Teensy 3.1 USB Microcontroller Development Board
    Excellent board, highly recommend to step up from Arduino
    Review by Erin
    Of course you have to solder the pins onto this bad boy, which can be a deterrent to newbs, but the Teensy 3.1 offers a significant pin upgrade, three hardware serial ports, a real 12bit analogue output, and 64k of RAM, it packs a serious punch. I also appreciate that if you merely solder a 20cent crystal onto the back of it, it then has its own onboard real time clock. This and you can program it exactly the same way as an Arduino, using the exact same libraries. It's an amazing value and for the most part I am using Teensy 3.1 to drive my projects and the Arduino is my testing board/thing I have kicking around.

  • GAOKI X-GAME V4 Action Camera
    Excellent product
    Review by JV
    This camera has a very good quality.
    Tested with a 32GB memory card and I was able to get lots of good HD videos with good stability to shaking.

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 [...]
