MORE POWER! MORE SOPHISTICATION! MORE FUN!

Here's a fun and affordable way for hobbyists to take their robot building skills to the next level and if they wish, be part of the hottest new craze in amateur robotics: Sumo competition.

Great for ages 14+, the kit comes complete with:
* Pre-assembled PCB
* Multi-function, duel channel remote control
* Robot hardware including collision-sensing infra-red LED and receivers
* CD-ROM with programming instructions and file chapters of robot building tips and tricks
* A built-in Parallax BASIC Stamp 2 and prototyping area allowing hobbyists to create their own robot application without having to purchase additional Parallax products

Powered by four AA batteries (not included) and featuring a built-in infra-red remote control, the Sumo-Bot is pre-programmed with the following behavior "built in" to jumpstart custom applications.


* Random Movement--The robot moves about randomly, reversing direction when an obstacle is in its way

* Photophobe--Avoids light
* Maze Solver--Follows a wall
