Robolink of San Diego, California has released a new product designed to teach students about robot construction and program on Kickstarter.
Known as the Rokit Smart ($129), this table-top robot can be built in 12 different ways. It comes with many programs pre-loaded, and the Hacker’s Edition ($139) comes with a USB programming cable so you can upload your own code to the Arduino-based bot. The Rokit Smart comes fully soldered, but still needs to be assembled. Detailed instructions are included with each kit.
The Rokit Smart Kit can be pre-ordered via Kickstarter, where you can also find special packages for educators.
