To celebrate National Robotics Week we have a cool GIVEAWAY, a iRobot Create (R) programmable robot – we have here at the Adafruit shop (arm not included).
Create is an affordable mobile robot platform for educators, students and developers – use it to experiment, learn and play! Here’s just the beginning of the fun you can have with Create…
-Learn the fundamentals of robotics, computer science and engineering
-Program behaviors, sounds and movements
-Attach sensors, electronics, cameras, grippers and more
Create is preassembled and ready to use right out of the box. Beginners can observe the robot’s behavior in any of the 10 demonstration modes or program the robot by downloading scripts with any basic terminal program. Advanced users can write custom software using a variety of methods that take advantage of the robot’s “streaming sensor data” mode for more control of the robot. And highly advanced users can write programs for completely autonomous behavior.
HOW TO ENTER Just show up at our weekly “Ask an Engineer” chat 10pm ET, Saturday night. We’ll have a trivia question as usual and you could win.
Have an amazing project to share? Join the SHOW-AND-TELL every Wednesday night at 7:30pm ET on Google+ Hangouts.
