Arduino has announced that it is shipping a new product, an open source robotic platform, for prices starting from 189€.
“Designed in cooperation with Complubot, 4-time world champions in the Robocup Junior robotics soccer, the Arduino Robot promises endless hours of experimentation and play.
It is a self-contained platform that allows you to build interactive machines to explore the world around you.”
“The Arduino Robot is the result of a collective effort from an international team looking to make science and electronics fun to learn.”
This is great news for experimenters. A basic robot that can be modified, added to and programmed, but also used just out of the box should certainly give robotics experimentation and development a boost.
