This “JunkBot” deluex kit includes everything you need to build and programme your own robot … except for the chassis.
Following the best tradition of “junkBotics”, junk ‘bots are built from the bits of junk you have laying around; because of this, every junk ‘bot is unique and has its own character – see you always knew that junk would come in useful one day!
