The Western Canadian Robot Games are close at hand (umm... this weekend!), and in response to popular request, we're cranking up the SolarSpeeder contest again!

Ever built a Solarbotics SolarSpeeder? Bring it down to the games, enter at our booth (free!), and we'll run a SolarSpeeder target race. Aim your racer at a 10cm (4") wide gap at the far end of an 8' x 4' platform, and the closest one wins a prize. Get it through the gap and win BIG!

Oh, an you may even go up against our new SolarSpeeder 1.2 prototype!

Strange set of Atmel '328 ICs...

Unlike Sparkfun, who actually manage to find fake Atmel ICs, we just get strange batches. The Atmel ATMega328 is the power behind the Arduino/Freeduino/*duino, and we have to set up a programming system to burn the venerable Arduino Bootloader into these chips. We normally use an AVR STK500 in HVSP (high voltage serial programming) mode, […]

PICAXE Experimenter's Kit on sale!

Well, we're disappointed. Not a single one of you fell for our Pimp Your Sumo April Fool's joke.  Which is too bad, really, because we were actually ready to send them out to anyone that wanted one. Oh well, too late now! But don't fret if you missed out - we have a special treat […]
