Pi-Bot, an Affordable Arduino Robot

Pi-BotI was recently forwarded a link to the soon-to-be released Pi-Bot robot kit.  The Pi-Bot’s Kickstarter campaign is fully funded and is estimated to ship this June.  This robot kit has many similarities to other Arduino-based robots, but at $75, it is much cheaper than anything I have seen.  This fully complete kit comes with an Arduino-compatible board, light sensor, ultrasonic sensor, breadboard and comprehensive instructions.    It seems like a great follow up for kids who’ve already mastered Mindstorms robotics and are looking to move on with their skills.  If you’re looking for an introduction to programmable robotics at a reasonable price, it’s definitely worth checking out.
