Jin Sato Creates Inexpensive DIY Kit

Jin Sato, JS-Robotics' founder, was asked to develop a robot kit by educators for those who could not afford much or had limited resources. He came up with one that can be programmed without a computer. It runs on an inexpensive cell phone vibrator, has tooth brush heads instead of wheels and programming that allows it to sense pencil marks on a page. It can follow a line and play robot sumo, among other capabilities.
