Here’s a kit company, called Phenostream, we’ve never heard of before offering an interesting-looking and very inexpensive AVR-based robot kit. As you can see from the photo, the AVRkitCar is very tiny. It sells for CDN$85, which is around US$70. I’ll see if I can’t get an evaluation unit from them and do a full-blown review of this kit.
