Parallax Boe-Bot Robot Kit

Parallax Boe-Bot Robot Kit

Geeks love bots… I cannot remember the first time I dreamed of creating a robot and using cardboard, scissors and some old fashion imagination I created my first “robot” which did nothing but fall over and completely fall apart. Ok, so that was only two weeks ago…

Anyway, Parallax has created a couple robot kits that use the BASIC Stamp 2 microcontroller and something called the Board of Education project platform allowing you to create a Boe-Bot Robot and teach it to navigate on its own with touch, light and infrared sensors.

Don’t forget to program robot ethics into your bot (unless you manage to make the bot look like Number Six!).

The ever-popular Boe-Bot(R) Robot Full Kit (serial version) is our most complete reprogrammable robot kit.

We’re particularly proud of Andy Lindsay’s new Robotics with the Boe-Bot text. The Robotics text includes 41 new activities for the Boe-Bot robot with structured PBASIC 2.5 source code support and bonus challenges with solutions in each chapter. Starting with basic movement and proceeding to sensor-based projects, customers quickly learn how the Boe-Bot is expandable for many different robotic projects. No previous robotics, electronics or programming experience is necessary. View the improvements for an overview of what’s new, or download the Robotics text below to review our documentation. Parallax offers the most complete, clear and interesting support for this kit. Over 90,000 Boe-Bot robots are in use by hobbyists, educators and students around the world, which provided lots of feedback for improvements to this popular kit along the way.

The Boe-Bot robot is built on a high-quality brushed aluminum chassis that provides a sturdy platform for the continuous rotation servo motors and BASIC Stamp module’s Board of Education carrier board. Many mounting holes and slots may be used to add custom robotic equipment or off-the-shelf Parallax add-ons. The rear wheel is a slider ball held in place with a cotter pin. Drive wheels are molded to fit precisely on the servo spline and held in place with a small screw.
