Topic: Arduino Team to Launch Branded Arduino Robot (Read 6715 times) previous topic - next topic


I see today (23.05.13) that the official Arduino Robot is available to order on Maker SHED.  (I sure hope my wife doesn't check the credit card balance right away).   



$259?, wow, I can see schools etc paying that price, but not individuals.

Schools etc = tax payers  ;)



MakerShed also has a Robot sensor expansion package available for $100


I think Arduino team would do the entire community a favor following this up very, very quickly with an option that includes magnetic rotary encoders, gyro and 2-axis accelerometer, for very basic navigation capabilities and gyrodometry.

I have seen a few of young budding roboticists get disappointed and disillusioned with their hobby as soon as they learn the limitations of dead reckoning, and more often they are unable to take the next step on their own without a lot of guidance.
