Books for Robot Newbies


If you were lucky enough to get a new bot for Christmas and are not sure what to do with it, we found a variety of books to get you started, all at inexpensive prices. "Robot Programmer's Bonanza," by John Blankenship and Samuel Mishal, will teach you things about RobotBasic and help you learn how to program and get your bot to do something besides sitt around the house. "Robot Building for Beginners," by David Cook, an engineer at Motorola, gives expert advice while providing loads of pictures in over 600 pages.

"JunkBots, Bugbots, and Bots on Wheels: Building Simple Robots With BEAM Technology," by David Hrynkiw and Mark Tilden, is a DIY guide to BEAM (Biology, Electronics, Aesthetics, Mechanics) robots. Finally, if you received a Lego Mindstorm NXT, the "Unofficial Lego Mindstorm NXT Inventor's Guide," by David J. Perdue, is a good place to start. Let us know what you come up with!
