Vex Robotics Kit

Ignition has been awarded a CES Best of Innovations with its erector set-like Vex Robotics Kit. Developed in cooperation with First (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute, the starter kit comes with everything you need to design and build a radio-controlled robot that can lift, throw or just move around in its botty way.

Industrial designer Doug Galleti says that the Vex system can “provide ease of construction at an affordable price point – capturing a larger audience of tech geeks.”

Contact Vex Robotics if you have $299.99 to acquire your very own kit and don’t want to share with your kids.
