Remote Control Machines

Remote Control Machines Construction Kit

My loving wife asked me what I wanted for my birthday this year.  I asked for some sort of Legos-like-build-your-own-robot-kit that I could control with the Raspberry Pi, and simple enough that I could build it with my son.  Well happy birthday to me, as she came through with this excellent Remote Control Machines Construction Kit ($46).
It comes with enough pieces and instructions to build 10 different models, 3 electric motors and an infrared remote control.  Inserting the Raspberry Pi should be as simple as swapping out the remote control receiver with a Raspberry Pi and a simple motor controller.
