After a head banging weekend of studying robotics, I gave up, for now anyway. Too many parts, too many options, too much time!
This is the picture my son drew of what he wanted his robot to look like (note remote control in corner).
This is the non-robotic crafty one I made from bits and pieces.
Kind of cute, I thought. Thank goodness for duct tape and curtain hooks.
This is the kit robotI finally ordered for us to make. This one does move and runs on batteries. I also found out they make other pre-package kits for beginners to start with, yea!
Thank you Amazon.com for not making me buy a soldering iron and learn circuitry just yet.
