The BeetleBot is a simple kit to make a quick and basic obstacle-avoiding robot without using any solder.


Description [Hide]

The BeetleBot is the simplest TRUE robot you can build. Use only a screwdriver to put it together, then watch it zoom and smartly bounce off things in it's way! No microcontrollers, ICs, or transistors are used - just two switches wired cleverly together form the brains of this robot that has been featured as a popular MAKE Magazine & Instructables.com project.

Designed by Jerome Demers originally as a science-fair project, this robot design has won awards for it's simplicity and effectiveness. Jerome has now turned his design into a solder-free project, ideal for beginners to put together. The kit features:

  • Simple screw-together mechanical construction (we even included the screwdriver!)
  • Plug-in wiring
  • Sturdy, preformed wire sensors
  • Laser-cut acrylic shell featuring two shell designs (Ladybug / Tribal) and four color-themes
  • Detailed construction manual with large, clear graphics
  • Our famous 100% satisfaction guarantee means you don't risk disappointment - we'll make sure you have a successful build!

To finish your Beetle Robot, you will need 4 AAA Alkaline or rechargeable batteries, a steady hand, and a burning appreciation for putting stickers on things (that's how you customize your Beetle Robot!)
