Parallax 28832 Boe-Bot Robot Kit - USB Version (non-solder)
The ever-popular Boe-Bot® Full Kit is now available with a USB-compatible Board of Education (BOE) - at no additional cost to the consumer! Programming the BASIC Stamp via USB is an elegant solution for laptops and newer PCs which have no serial ports (no more adapters required!). USB driver installation instructions are available for download on the USB Board of Education page.
We're particularly proud of Andy Lindsay's new Robotics with the Boe-Bot text. The Robotics text includes 41 new activities for the Boe-Bot robot with structured PBASIC 2.5 source code support and bonus challenges with solutions in each chapter. Starting with basic movement and proceeding to sensor-based projects, customers quickly learn how the Boe-Bot is expandable for many different robotic projects. No previous robotics, electronics or programming experience is necessary. View the improvements for an overview of what's new, or download the Robotics text below to review our documentation. Parallax offers the most complete, clear and interesting support for this kit. Over 90,000 Boe-Bot robots are in use by hobbyists, educators and students around the world, which provided lots of feedback for improvements to this popular kit along the way.
The Boe-Bot robot is built on a high-quality brushed aluminum chassis that provides a sturdy platform for the continuous rotation servo motors and BASIC Stamp's USB Board of Education. Many mounting holes and slots may be used to add custom robotic equipment or off-the-shelf Parallax add-ons. The rear wheel is a slider ball held in place with a cotter pin. Drive wheels are molded to fit precisely on the servo spline and held in place with a small screw.
What really makes the Boe-Bot unique is the BASIC Stamp microcontroller's flexibility of programming when coupled with breadboard circuit construction. Following along in Robotics with the Boe-Bot, users quickly learn about embedded projects, from wiring and components to programming and mechanical dependencies. The kit includes a set of passive components (wires, resistors, capacitors), sensors (photoresistors, bumpers, infrared sensors) and hardware (whisker touch-sensor kit) to complete the different projects.
The Boe-Bot robot takes about 1-2 hours to put together, though each project in the Robotics text provides a unique new experience of wiring and source code tuning. Completing the entire set of projects takes 50 hours and is suitable for anybody over 12 years of age. The USB Board of Education (and BS2-IC) may also be removed to be used as your platform for the other kits in the Stamps in Class series.
After mastering the basics, Boe-Bot add-ons let you branch out into new activities, such as making your Boe-Bot talk with a speech board, adding infrared remote control, maze contests, line following, interfacing direction sensors, and using RF modules and video/camera equipment to build a Video-Bot. Boe-Bot accessories are all sold separately, and are available through the Robot Accessories page below.
Parallax 28202 Gripper Kit for the Boe-Bot Robot
Do you want to teach your Boe-Bot® Robot new tricks, like playing fetch? Our newly redesigned Gripper Kit adds pick-up and carry capability to your Boe-Bot Robot at the right price. The Gripper features parallel plates that open, clamp onto and lift objects all with one cleverly utilized Parallax Standard Servo. Since the Gripper's servo plugs right into a servo port on the Board of Education, no additional battery pack is needed. The lightweight but sturdy aluminum, brass and plastic Gripper hardware weighs less than 7 ounces.
Here's what the Gripper can do:
- Clamp onto objects up to 2 in (5 cm) wide
- Lift up to 4 ounces (113 grams) without counterweight
- Lift up to 14 ounces (397 grams) with counterweight (not included)
Please note that measurements are approximate. The Gripper Kit is designed specifically as an accessory for the Boe-Bot Robot (sold separately). Please view the Gripper Kit documentation for a complete parts list.

PLX-28015 PARALLAX 28015 PING)))™ Ultrasonic Sensor
Provides distance measurements between moving or stationary objects. Applications include robotics and security. Activity status LED indicates an “in-progress” measurement. Works via ultrasonic pulse which is transmitted from the unit. The time it takes for the echo to return from the target calculates the distance measurement. Easy interfacing with BASIC Stamp and Javelin Stamp. On-board 3-pin header can simply be plugged into the Boe-Bot’s solderless breadboard.
