VEXplorer Modular Robotics Kit

The newest incarnation of the VEX system is almost here!  The hotly anticipated VEXplorer kit will be available from our store in just a few weeks, and we’re really looking forward to getting our hands on it.  Check out some of the cool features:

"The Spycam" — see and hear what you want, and maybe in places you shouldn’t, with live color picture and sound transmission to your TV. 2.4 GHz, 4-channel. Range 150′.
"The Claw" — build it to pick up a soda can, or a feather. Mount it horizontal or vertical to grab what you want.  Great for terrorizing your pets!
"The Arm" — servo motors let you manipulate the action to reach high, low, and in-between.
All Terrain Tires — Go anywhere, inside or outside, with six heavy-duty, gear-driven wheels.
6-channel hobby-class transmitter — 4 analog and 2 digital channels offer maximum flexibility to control servos and provide exceptional stability to avoid frequency drift.
  The VEXplorer Kit also includes:

  • 4 servos
  • 24 gears
  • various coated heavy metal parts
  • cables / harnesses
  • tools
  • screws, nuts, bolts, etc.

VEXplorer will be compatible with the older VEX hardware, so if you have a bunch of sensors and servos and whatnot lying around from the previous generation, don’t sweat it.  VEXplorer kits are currently available for pre-order, and will begin shipping at the end of August.
