In this section you will find a wide range of popular Self Build & Ready Assembled Robotics products to suit everyone’s taste. Building a robot from a kit is the perfect foundation for any Robotics experience. In fact, when you build and assemble a robot kit, you learn about core STEM subjects, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Robot kits are a lot of fun and make excellent educational gifts. For more advanced enthusiasts wanting to create their own robots from scratch, please visit our Robot Parts section.
Designing a robot from scratch can be a very rewarding project, but can be a little overwhelming to the beginner robot builder. Chassis kits provide a good starting point to which you can add your choice of parts. Some platforms include wheels, motors and parts bundles. If you are creative, consider making your own base with the easy to use Sintra PVC boards. Perhaps design your own robot arm or a walking robot, using the large assortment of aluminium hardware brackets, rails and plates. Arm gripper kits and robot leg kits are available too. Our small electronic kits are ideal for beginners as an introduction to the techniques of soldering components and simple circuit boards. To power your robot, batteries are available in different types and sizes. Perhaps consider a solar powered robot? Solar panels are a great alternative and can be linked in series or parallel to increase voltage and current. Linking batteries in series increases voltage while linking in parallel increases the available current.
Motors & Wheels
Robot Apps are used to control your robot and give your robots their intelligence. Some Apps allow you to generate pre-programmed movement sequences, others are used for remote control, and software development platforms are used to make more sophisticated autonomous control systems.
