Must Have: OWI RocKit Robot Kit

rockitrobot.jpg

OWI has been making kits for a while now, so good that they win awards. If your kids (or you) are getting started in robotics, try the RocKit Robot, our Must Have this week. The kit comes with a pre-soldered electronic circuit board, motor, 3 wheels and plastic body parts. When completed, its built-in sensor reacts to sound, vibration or physical contact. The 4 1/2 x 5 x 3 1/2" bot moves forward until it hears a high-pitched sound or a clap. Think of it as a Clap-on on steroids. You will need some basic hand tools and 2 AA batteries to build the RocKit.
