Hello all,

I was wondering if any of you knew of a really good entry level robotics kit and where I could get one. My budget is probably around $1,000.

I'm looking for a kit that has all the essential components, a computer interface, customizable programming etc.

I don't know much about robotics (I just have a bachelors in mech. eng), so I want to start from scratch, put it together myself, program it etc.

Obviously though, since this is my first attempt, it shouldn't be too complicated. If anyone knows of a good place to start I would appreciate it. Thanks

robotics kit

Probably not what you are looking for, but my question on led me to

Likely not what you are looking for, but seems like if you spent the thousand on used parts
you could have years of building if ya wanted. Seems neat to me, likely not helpful, but it wouldn't be the first time I heard that.
