Rovera, Maker Shed

I already wrote about the Rovera robots in the Maker Shed Robot Gift Guide, but this guide is supposed to cover the robots that I’m excited about/interested in and that includes the Rovera. There are a lot of basic robot platforms out there. One of the things that I think makes the Rovera so special is the accompanying book, Make an Arduino-Controlled Robot. It’s designed to be a very detailed step-by-step manual for assembling the Roveras. So even though the Rovera is a fairly sophisticated robot, not ideally suited for the beginner, even a dedicated beginner could tackle it by carefully following the instructions in the book. BTW: The book stands on its own if you want to provide your own parts. The Rovera is available in two versions:
Rovera 4W, $175
Rovera 2W $200
