Cheap BOE-BOTs

Robotics Technology

Tonyvr writes in with this deal on BOE-BOTs – “Cheap BOE-BOTS are back at MicroCenter again, but at $70 instead of the previous $50. This is still a terrific deal, as list price is $149. I bought 20 kits at $50, and although the boxes were battered, and had “Radio Shack” price stickers on them, the contents were new and complete.”Link.

In August we pointed to this when it was $50, as Tony said, it’s not a bad deal for a Boe-Bot Robot kit (uses a BASIC Stamp 2 microcontroller).

In MAKE 02 we reviewed this kit – Link.

    I ordered one on Aug 15th (at $50) and it was backordered until Sept 20th (I received it last week). However the price break was worth it and I’m not sure when I’ll get to play with it anyway.

  3. BrK says: has them for $59, I just ordered 5.

    I also got one back when they were $50. I had a slight backorder problem, but there were no problems with the box and no radio shack stickers. I don’t know where they keep finding these, but even at 70 bucks, it’s a great deal.

    I ordered one last time and got it in 3 days.
    Pristine box, no RS stickers.
