Edison the robot is packed with features. The only real question is... What will you invent?
Edison is programmed using EdWare, a drag and drop graphical programming language that is easy to learn. EdWare is free and open source and works on Windows, Mac and Linux computers.
Getting started with Edison is easy. Simply print out some barcodes and drive him across them to activate a range of pre-programmed functions, such as line following, obstacle avoidance and learning standard TV/DVD remote control commands.
