ActivityBot Robot Kit: P8X32A CPU, Encoders, Sensors, USB US$199.00

ActivityBot Robot Kit: P8X32A CPU, Encoders, Sensors, USB

Learn real-world engineering skills with the friendly, capable, and peppy ActivityBot. It's a great option for first-time robot builders, as well as for high-school and college Introduction to Technology and Engineering courses.

Step-by-step web tutorials take you through programming its multicore P8X32A Propeller chip in C, wiring circuits on a breadboard, and building sensor systems so your robot can navigate on its own. Following the checkmarks gets you to the fun fast, with optional links for added learning.

The ActivityBot is ready for tinkering with off-the-shelf components, additional sensors, and upgrade kits. The Activity Board sports a mini audio jack and a socket for an optional XBee module (not included).
