The original restrictions for this project are that the robot should be; -- Easy to assemble without the use of many tools. -- Up-gradable and hack-able. -- Based on an easy to program chip-set. -- Fully constructed for under $50.
I have just sold the first batch of kits and should be making more soon. The website is www.Hack-E-Bot.com
Right now I am looking to get educators involved to help turn the website into an educational portal for children interested in engineering and robotics.
