Description [Hide]

123 Robotics Experiments for the Evil Genius is a good starting point for anyone who is just interested in either electronics or robotics. The text provides 123 experiments that have been designed to introduce and educate the reader about the mechanism and the electronics required for building a robot.

This book shows how you can create simple robots and models using inexpensive materials and tools found around the house and workroom.

Includes a printed circuit board
