The folks over at LetsMakeRobots.com do some great stuff. Looking around the site you'll find a wide range of community members who love making and documenting all sorts of robots. In particular they've made the Start Here project - a simple, elegant and programmable robot utilizing the PICAXE microcontroller. Not only is it a neat bot, but it's very well documented with step-by-step instructions for putting it together.

After working directly with the author of the project, we've specifically designed this bundle to provide you with all the needed parts to build it. And, even better, to support the community and maintain the site we will donate 10% of each sale for this kit directly to Let's Make Robots. It's a win-win situation - get the parts to build a cool project and support one of your favourite robot/electronics communities. What else could you ask for?

Included Parts

This kit does not come with the PICAXE software CD, but don't worry - all the PICAXE software and documentation is available for free download.
