These pages are extremely useful for an entry into the Robotics Wonderland, a little electronics ability is enough for you to start learning robotics. Robotics is the only science that covers everything almost .. Mechanical, Electrical, Electronics, Embedded, Computing, Networking, Automation and Wireless Technologies. Some advanced robots include probably every science and skill known to mankind. So make a start today. Learn Robotics! – ananth (san)

Biped BRAT Combo Kit – Autonomous Brushed

Biped BRAT Combo Kit - Lynxmotion

BRAT stands for Bipedal Robotic Articulating Transport. The robot is a 6 servo biped walker featuring three degrees of freedom (DOF) per leg. The robot can walk forward or backwards and turn in place left or right with variable speed. It can even do lots of Robo-One style acrobatic moves.

The robot is available in two basic configurations, Animatronic (tethered or wireless connection to a PC) or Autonomous (controlled by the onboard Basic Atom Pro processor). The autonomous version includes the Bot Board II and the Basic Atom Pro processor.

Autonomous-behavior version with pre-written, modifiable code. This product includes everything you need to build and program the robot from a personal computer for autonomous behavior.

“The mission here is to help hobbyist get started with microcontrollers. The primary focus is ARM7 based microcontrollers which can be a big step for persons new to embedded development.”

USB IO Chips – uCHobby.com

The chip is very easy to work with and provides 12 or 16 I/O pins with various built in functions like variable flash rate, event counters, variable sink current and more. They provide lots of documentation and a DLL to make interfacing easy.”
