I haven’t seen these in person, but the e-puck education robot looks interesting… (anyone poke around with these?) – “This project has been started at the Ecole Polytechnique FÃ©dÃ©rale de Lausanne as collaboration between the Autonomous Systems Lab, the Swarm-Intelligent Systems group and the Laboratory of Intelligent System. The main goal of this project is to develop a miniature mobile robot for educational purposes at university level. To help the creation of a community inside and outside EPFL, the project is based on an open hardware concept, where all documents are distributed and submitted to a license allowing everyone to use and develop for it.” [via] – Link.
