The Latest in Hobby Robotics 06

In this weeks show, Rik and Frits are taking a look at one of the
oldest, yet still most popular simple and fun hobby robot projects:
“The Sumo”. Also in this show, a look at a very impressive piece of a
hand made full metal robot that looks like it is ready to explore
Mars.
Here is a list of links related to the show, including project pages
and YouTube clips:

    Personally, I prefer Parallax MCUs even if they are more expensive. They’re quite powerful, and the command set is? also quite large, especially for the 2p24 in the case of BASIC Stamps, which includes useful special commands like LCDOUT or I2CIN. I’m actually doing an autonomous robot using one.
