New Product!

We've been shopping again, but the accountant won't let us hoard all the goodies for ourselves. SOOO, we're announcing the following goodies!

  • RBFB: The Book "Robot Building for Beginners" by David Cook, which is an excellent reference for a newcomer to robotics. It's an ideal companion for our own book "Junkbots, Bugbots, and Bots on Wheels".
  • SWT8: A new tiny micro SPST switch that is simply too tiny and cool not to take a look at!
  • SWT9:A new small lever action SPDT switch with solderable lever. We're doing many experiments using these as robot tactile sensors.
  • CdS: There's been renewed interest in photo-resistors (or photocells, or Cadmium-Sulphide cells), and we've finally found a source of good quality units. Unlike many surplus CdS sensors we've tested in the past, these are in reasonably good tolerance.
  • 0.01µF Capacitors: It's easier to do high-frequency Bicore experiments with a small capacitor!

Well, back to work - must find more things to hide from the accountant!

Another New Gearmotor - The GM19!

Here's a funky motor for you - the GM19!

But be warned: It is a bit strange. The gearhead is mounted askew to the motor, […]

Content Added

Well, it's not exactly news, but we have managed to import most of the old content back into the site. There are still a few more additions to go, but this should keep you tinkering on new projects until then. Head over to the BEAM Resources section for the added BEP Applications, Photo Galleries, and […]

Netduino!

Not just another *uino clone, as this uses a 32-bit Atmel AT91SAM7X ARM microcontroller. Sure, it uses the same form factor (well, except for the breadboard-friendly mini version), but the Netduino uses the .NET micro framework. What's that mean? Well, you're using a hugely more capable microcontroller (8-bit vs 32 bit), with much more memory […]
