Generic Robot Assembly Kit
Build your own mobile robots and customize their response patterns! The Generic Robot Assembly Kit includes a number of field-tested sensor systems and motor drivers that you wire together in different configurations to create a body for your robot. In GRAK, a special combinational logic board decodes the robot's current sensory readings and then responds with the actions you select for each situation. This flexibility lets you experiment with different reactive strategies and evolve your robot to achieve progressively higher levels of competence.
There are 4 different boards in the Serial GRAK kit, each 2.5" by 4" by 0.75" thick, which can be stacked on top of each other. Wiring is accomplished using jumpers with breadboard-like connectors. To make your own creature, simply select a suitable remote-control vehicle and interface it as described in the directions. A sample design and response patterns are included with the kit. A fully functional robot can be constructed for a total of about two hundred dollars.
