OWI robots was @ The NYC Toy fair 2008, this is another company that I’ve never seen in person but have seen their kits online before. They have a lot of variations of a solar cell with a motor – aerial cable cars, solar cars, viking ships, solar climbing monkeys in addition to nicely machined metal bug kits and my favorite – their line of giant robotic arms.
