This NEXT GENERATION robot from McGraw-Hill features:

  • The power of the Parallax BASIC Stamp 2 controller
  • A tracked drive for maneuverability over all types of terrain
  • Flipping ability to put the competition on its back
  • A steel frame that encourages customization
  • Mechanical features designed to withstand the shock of combat
  • AA battery powered for longer operation


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-Botis 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
  • Photovore - seeks out light
  • Photophobe - avoids light
  • Maze Solver - follows a wall

Developed by the creators of the popular BUILD YOUR OWN ROBOT KIT.

Titan Tank

Titan Tank Robot Kit is a wireless infrared remote control kit. Its microprocessor provides 4 different channels to have up to 4 Titan Tanks fight each other at the same time. Each Titan Tank Robot Kit fires 8 shots and is designed to make a sound when shooting. Once a Titan Tank is struck 4 times by an enemy tank, it will turn 360 degrees and make a sound like an ambulance. When a Titan Tank "dies" it must be restarted in order to join the battle. 

The Titan Tank Robot Kit moves by 6 wheels which can move the tank forward, backward, right and left for a total of 8 movements which provide endless fun and excitement.
