Torrone's kit robot
One of the reasons behind the emergence of a nearly mainstream DIY robotics movement--or at least one that could be behind such an emergence, if the movement truly does go mainstream--is the proliferation of easy-to-use robotics kits.
This one, created by Phillip Torrone, a senior editor at Make magazine, is expected to cost about $70 when it hits the market. It will have many possible functions, including being bump-sensitive or even color-sensitive.
