Hyper yes, and we really mean it. This cyber bug possesses a sonic tracking system, and is fortified with a multitude of sensors: photo transistors to detect a black line, Tracking memory to memorize its last track of the black line, and two red LEDs that flash to tell you which side of the light sensor is activated. What this all means is that HYPER LINE TRACKER is the fastest line navigator that we have ever seen. HYPER LINE TRACKER follows a course of your own design! By using a light emitter, light sensor circuitry, and tracking memory, it demonstrates how robots “see” a pathway. Make a path with a black felt marker or black tape and watch how light sensors enable the robot’s motors to make course corrections. Requires four AA batteries.

Jungle Robot is a mysterious robot. One day, you may look up and catch a glimpse of Jungle Robot crossing hand-over-hand high across a string extended from tree to tree in the mist of the jungle air. Another day, you can catch him skipping through the fallen leaves on the ground. A condenser microphone and printed circuit board controls your multi-function (walking or climbing) friend. When you think Jungle Robot is asleep, just cry Wake UP! Your robot will immediately start climbing or walking for a pre-set time and reset itself waiting for another command. Jungle Robot is an excellent Beginner Series robot. This battery controlled robot kit can teach the basic principles of robotic sensing and locomotion. It features a pre-assembled printed circuit board, hardware, and mechanical drive system that can be handled by almost anyone from age 10 and up. Only basic hand tools are required for assembly. Educators, science museums, and hobbyist will surely appreciate the durability, educational value, and endless hours of amusement for children and adults too!

Not one, but two! Light and Sound! MOON WALKER II has combined the technology of two sensors. A whimsical indication of future trends, MOON WALKER II begins to walk when it detects a change in light intensity or sound commands. MOON WALKER II continues it’s four legged voyage until instructed by an internal timer to stop. This kit presents an engaging oppor-tunity to learn about some of the mechanics, operation and history of robots. When assembled, this robot uses a phototransistor to sense changes in light (such as turning on a lamp) and a condenser microphone to sense changes in sound (such as clapping). It converts those stimuli into electronic signals to power a motor, and MOON WALKER II will walk forward for a preset time. When it stops, affecting other change in light area light or sound may activate it again. The sensors can be adjusted for different sensitivity levels. Requires one AA battery.
