This kit allows you to build a robot using a Palm Pilot or one of its compatible derivatives. It may not work with the newest Palm Computers and PDAs as the ports are different.

This is a university project.

It uses Holonomic Wheels (Omni-Wheels). Use the kit with a Palm Computer PDA and you have a touch sensitive, gui LCD screen and controller straight off. It comes also with 3 optical sensors.

You can buy the kit at Acroname. They include hardware and software. The instruction to scratch build it are also available at Its Home Page.

The kit requires some soldering, and glueing.
