Summer Sale on ArbotiX RoboControllers, Commanders, and Kits!

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

The ArboriX Robocontroller is THE best way to interface with Dynamixel Servos.  It’s used in everything from robotic turrets to crawlers. Today, we’re slashing the price of this beloved micro-controller from $99.99 to $59.95! This also meams that the price on the ArbotiX Robocontroller Starter Kit will drop from $189 to $149.95!


We’re also lowering the price of the ArboiX Commander – an Arduino Compatible gamepad style controller. We’re dropping the price (previously $89.99) down to $59.95. The Commander communicates with the Robocontroller seamlessly via an XBee connection. But don’t think that the commander only works with the robocontroller – it in fact can control any XBee compatible system. The Commander has a wide variety of functions, and it’s designed to be customized so that you have perfect control over your project.


The great new prices on the Commmander and Robocontroller also mean that we’re lowering the prices some of our most popular kits. The PhantomX AX-12A Robot Turret  will be dropping from $249.95 to $199.95, and the AX-18F version will go from $349.95 to $309.95. The basic PhantomX Hexapod Kit without Servos and  the comprehensive PhantomX AX-12A Hexapod and  PhantomX AX-18F Hexapod kit sare all dropping $100 to $549.95, $1,199.95, and $2,149.95 respectively. We hope that these new low prices will get your robotic projects up and running even faster than before!

Wednesday, December 17th, 2008

When we announced that we would be cutting the I-Sobot’s price in half, making it only $95.99, our initial pre=orders sold out before we even got the shipment in! We’ve just received another shipment, so if you’re looking for an awesome hi-tech holiday gift for a geek near you (Here’s looking at you kid), this is the perfect choice! This robot debuted on the market at $300, so this is a killer deal!

What’s an I-Sobot? Well he’s the tiniest humanoid robot in production! The ultimate desk toy, this little robot stands only 6.5″ tall but is articulated as most larger humanoid bots with 17 servos, as well as voice commands, remote control, and over 100 special actions and dance routines!  If you order one soon there is still time to get it in before Christmas.
