Now you can build your own first robot, programmable in real world computer code,
just like the affordable desktop robot in the above photograph.
To build your robot you will need the P1X8 printed circuit board in the images below.
RobotScience and Mantech Electronics in Johannesburg, South Africa, developed this board
so you can take your first steps in robotics engineering with us or at home.
This board incorporates more than eight years of experience helping young people to build their
own microcontroller circuits for the first time, and includes every possible feature in order
to ensure that once built your circuit will work.
We have helped many teenagers to take their first steps into the exciting world of
robotics, and we have seen and corrected every imaginable mistake a novice builder
is likely to make. Our new P1X8 robotics and prototyping board has been developed
to help you get going easily and avoid all the mistakes newcomers are likely to make.
This high quality printed circuit board also has a rapid prototyping area, so that once
you have been through the novice training with us and understand the basics of programming,
you can start inventing your stuff with a view to starting your own microbusiness.
This circuit board sells for approximately $10 and we are developing a P1X8
electronics kit that includes the parts you need to populate this board.
If you assemble your board incorrectly and find you can't get it working, RobotScience
does offer a P1X8 microcontroller board repair service. The repair service costs R500 per board, this
charge does not include the cost of courier services to get the board to us and back, parts damaged
beyond repair that may have to be replaced.
We hope you will enjoy our huge website that now consists of more than 500 pages
and our 290 videos that we've made especially to entertain you and help you take
your first steps into the amazing world of electronics.
RobotScience has partnered with University of Johannesburg to train South Africa teenagers
in robotics, electronics and programming at the UJ TechnoLab.
