Toys for Boys Men Boe Bot

A few days ago I finally received my BOE-Bot. This toy robot is created for learning purposes. That’s what the name BOE stands for, Board Of Education. And I have to say it is true, the manual is about 350pages thick and very easy to read and understand even for a non English speaking guy :-). But most important, this robot is real fun to play with and I suggest if you want to start with robotics the real easy way, this is definately your start.


Below a very crappy video, haven’t got my good camera (JVC GR-D72U) working on USB yet (Laptop has no FireWire). But when you take a good look you see, that the table leg (is this correct) is the start and endpoint while the bot drives a square round. This is also called “Dead Reckoning”.
