Biped BRAT Combo Kit - Autonomous Brushed
Biped BRAT Combo Kit - Lynxmotion
BRAT stands for Bipedal Robotic Articulating Transport. The robot is a 6 servo biped walker featuring three degrees of freedom (DOF) per leg. The robot can walk forward or backwards and turn in place left or right with variable speed. It can even do lots of Robo-One style acrobatic moves.
The robot is available in two basic configurations, Animatronic (tethered or wireless connection to a PC) or Autonomous (controlled by the onboard Basic Atom Pro processor). The autonomous version includes the Bot Board II and the Basic Atom Pro processor.
Autonomous-behavior version with pre-written, modifiable code. This product includes everything you need to build and program the robot from a personal computer for autonomous behavior.

Tuxgraphics AVR Microcontroller

You will find tutorials on how to build your own avr programmer, a digital DC power supply, a tiny web server, an ethernet weather station, usb slide show presenter and lots more.

Tuxgraphics AVR Microcontroller

digital DC power supply unit - A very small an really good DC bench power supply unit for your hobby lab. It has lots of features which you normally find only in very expensive power supplies. This one is affordable, small and easy to build.

Temperature and humidity measurements with the AVR web-server - Just add this one SHT11 sensor. No other components are needed to measure temperature + humitidy + dew point.

Mini 3 digit display, a small and inexpensive voltmeter module - We build a simple and inexpensive three digit display. It's a voltmeter module but it has also gerneral purpose digital IO pins.
