EZ-Robot, Maker Shed, $235
Another Shed offering I plugged in my first guide. If I were buying for someone who’s already a bot enthusiast, I would likely get them this well-sourced, easy to use robot development kit with a great software interface and features you’d expect to see in a kit costing thousands not hundreds of dollars. And I really like the emphasis on turning existing toys and devices into real robots, like the Wall-E toy turned into a robot seen above. There’s also an active user community of EZ-Robot builders, which is always a nice gift to give, too.
