A great introduction to the world of building robotics, Solarboticís Herbie the Mousebot is a 9-volt battery-powered, light-following robot that loves to chase flashlight beams. These little robots are so quick, you have to run to keep up to them! Herbie even has functional whisker and tail sensors, so he doesnít get stuck in corners, or under obstacles, while chasing around. If there are several Herbies in the same area, they can even be configured to chase each other!
Herbie comes as a build-it-yourself kit that does not use any microprocessors or programming. You're supplied with all parts as shown in the picture, as well as documentation to put him together. The instructions contain many pictures and simple descriptions to make the building process easy and fun, especially for beginners.
