your own autonomous "real" robot, and others are just plain fun! Take a look at
our selection and choose your favorites.
The real Mars rover is a free running, electrically powered vehicle whose purpose is to explore the planet Mars. Its quest is to seek out mineral resources and evidence of water that could support future missions to the planet and possibly to discover life on Mars.
The Ultimate Mars Rover Kit is more than an ingenious and engaging toy - it is a knowledge- and trivia-based 'electronic' board game. It features a cleverly-designed robotic rover. This mini-machine allows young users to collect 'samples' from the surface.
First you construct the Mars Rover and set out the cardboard pieces of the surface of Mars. These parts have a design that is based on real-life maps of the planet, complete with canals and rocks. Then you establish Mission Control (which houses a pack of question cards), and start to play the board game! A correct answer to the question on a card is rewarded with a timed period exploring the planet's surface with the rover. At the end of each period of exploration, the collected samples are investigated and points awarded according to what has been discovered-minerals, water, or even life on Mars!

Muscle Wires Project Book : A Hands On Guide To Amazing Robotic Muscles That Shorten When Electrically Powered Includes the award winning Muscle Wire Project Book plus Flexinol 050, 100 and 150, and crimps and instructions. Enough to build all the projects in the book including Boris the six legged walking machine!
Boris is an exciting, fully controllable and low cost robot. It moves with an amazingly smooth and lifelike action, taking steps about one centimeter long and one centimeter high. Boris' simple design uses eight separate Muscle Wires to create all motions; one to make the forward/backward motion on each of the legs, and two wires for lifting alternating legs with each step. Connect Boris to an interface circuit that accepts signals from your PC's parallel printer port. Then operate it from the computer's keyboard! An ideal starter package for engineers, students and experimenters of all ages.
your own radio-controlled robot with the help of the Robot Challenge Kit!
This kit includes the radio control, instruction cards, "battle plans",
power chassis, training manual, and everything else you need to construct a
working model of a BattleBots-style combat robot. The large full-color
illustrations make robot construction easy. Twelve instruction cards show
clear, step-by-step instructions for assembling the kit. The Robot
also includes obstacles, mines, and traps you can use to set up an obstacle
course for your machine. The parts are packaged in a convenient locking box.
From the depths of the sea to the mysterious world of space, robots are up to the task of exploring, traveling, saving lives, or making life easier for human beings. David Eckhold's Ultimate Robot Kit makes life a whole lot more fun for human beings! This giant kit includes almost everything needed to construct four amazing robots, as well as a 24-page "Robot File," which explains the origins of robots, how they work, and how they are going to change our lives. Twelve instruction cards offer clear step-by-step directions to create the marvelous BounceBot, CreepycrawlyBot, KnotBot, and GobbleBot. Sturdy, simple cardboard and plastic components allow children to design and build working mechanical models quickly and easily, while they discover the essential robot skills of mobility, manipulation, programming, and intelligence. Building the first four bots gives kids the know-how to design a robot to their own specifications, and might even put these future engineers on a thrilling career path!
Ultimate Robot Kit includes: motor, plastic gears, dowels, disks, bodywork, and stickers. The parts are packaged in a large box with a convenient Velcro lock. These components combine to produce four amazingly talented robots. Each robot has its own skill-based "personality" and its own special way of working. The guidebook explains how robots started, how they work, and how they are going to change our lives in the future. 12 cards show clear, step-by-step instructions and use high-tech images to detail each robot's size, shape, special functions, and strength. The knowledge gained in making the four robots allows children to progress to designing and making a fifth robot to their own specifications. The topics explored support the Science and Technology Curriculum.
