Geeks.com is selling the Parallax Boe-Bot, a really nice starter robot experimenter’s platform that uses the Basic Stamp 2, for only US$64. Considering that the Boe-Bot retails for $150 and the Basic Stamp 2 cost $50 by itself, this is a great deal.
Parallax was kind enough to send me a Boe-Bot kit when I was writting my robot book. I never got a chance to play with it. I gave it to my intern for helping me with the robot projects. The kit looked really good tho, easy to assemble, with great docs, lots of ideas for experiments and using the built-in breadboard, etc. For $64, this is a no brainer.
