Over the weeks we’ve been reviewing the composition of our Invent Kits so we can give more value for your money.
We looked at our original Invent Robotics Starter Kit and noticed that it contained a bunch of components you were most likely not going to use. Components such as tons of electrolytic capacitors and several useless resistor values.
We felt really bad because you were paying for components you wouldn’t use. Our product team decided to rethink the entire kit from a projects perspective.
We thought of fun robotics projects you would love to build and then figured out all the components you’d need to build that kit.
After hours of thinking up cool projects, we put together a new kit..this time with you in mind. No useless components. Only useful stuff.
Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you The New Invent Robotics Starter Kit!
Here is the composition of the new kit.
Chassis: For the chassis, you get a new bigger 4 Wheel Drive Robotics Chassis Kit complete with all accessories and assembly guide.
Microcontroller: For the microcontroller, you get a standard Arduino Uno R3 with USB cable for more connections.
Sensors: We have put in the 2 sensors used most commonly with robotics projects; the HC-SR04 ultrasonic sensor and 2 obstacle avoidance sensors. You have no idea how many projects you can do with these sensors alone.
Connectivity: To make it possible to control your robot from your phone and do other cool stuff, we have included an HC-05 Bluetooth Module for connectivity.
Control: This one is a no brainer. You have an L298N Red Full H-Bridge Motor driver to allow you control all 4 wheels of your motor.
Power: For power, you get 2 pairs of energizer AA batteries, a 9V battery and a 9v barrel jack. We have provided 2 power supply sources because we figured you’ll need a lot of power to power all 4 motors as well as your Arduino and sensors.
Extras: You get other components too like LEDs, relevant resistors, NPN transistors, piezo buzzer, transistors, breadboard, jumpers and switches.
Here’s the kit assembled.
With this kit, you can build the following projects and more:
- Bluetooth Controlled Robot
- Obstacle Avoidance Robot
- Line Following Robot
- Proximity Security Robot
- All the above 3 projects on one jumbo robot with the ability to easily switch between different modes.
- Other cooler stuff
Here’s one cool thing too. We are currently preparing documentation and making tutorials of all our the different projects you can build with the New Improved Invent Robotics Starter Kit.
We will upload them to our tutorial site as we do them.
Meanwhile, you can order your New Invent Robotics Start Kit here.
We can’t wait to show you what we build!
