Description: Replacement: None. We are no longer carrying this robotics kit but check out our robotics category for more kits and components! This page is for reference only.

The Robo-CIRCLE is an enjoyable robotics kit for anyone looking to begin learning about the wonderful world of embedded electronics. The main component of this kit is the i-Box III - a compact-size programmable microcontroller board complete with motor drivers, LEDs, a speaker, memory and more.

With this kit, you’ll be able to make a number of robots including: a line follower, a light follower and an object avoider.

Users can program the brain using either a graphical or text-based version of the LOGO programming language. A CDROM is included with installs for both versions of the LOGO language and a user’s manual.

Customer Comments

  • I need to built a robot for my school,
    i wonder,
    can i combine this robot with arduino parts?

  • I’m interested in this for my kids as an xmas present, but there is very little info here…. can you post the manual or something to give a little more insight into how it is programmed? Thanks!

  • What OS is the included software for? What [other?] development software can be used?

    • The software is written in Java so it can theoretically run on other platforms. I found more information about this kit here:
      (from same manufacturer Inex, the controller i-box-3 is the same, the kit’s components are slightly different and is called Robo-Box-3.0)

    • I’m unaware of any other development software that could be used but it works on Windows ME and later OS including Windows 7 here is the system requirements:
      15mb of hard drive space
      800x600 or 1024x768 resolution color monitor
      Serial or USB Port
      CD-ROM Drive or Internet Access

  • This looks good! I would buy it if it was cheaper and if there was a schmetic.
