Anyone know anything about them? We want to get one for Leo's birthday, but there seems to be loads of choice and I don't want to get something too complicated and overface him - it's got to be something he and Arvo can do together in a weekend, for about fifty quid. We already have the Raspberry Pi.

Any suggestions, anyone?

that with the extra sensors ,comms kit and a camera mount bits looks like lots of fun

a fiver will get a simple camera that will do robot eye view


a bit better than the old bbc micro,mechano technical stuff we used to do
