A number of K Nex kits are available, from simple starter sets to rather massive specialpurpose collections (many of which are designed to build robots, dinosaurs, or robot dinosaurs). Several of the kits come with small gear motors so you can motorize your creation. Motors that interface to K Nex parts are also available separately.

Make Bar Code In None
Using Barcode creation for Software Control to generate, create barcode image in Software applications.
EAN / UCC - 14 Generator In None
Using Barcode maker for Software Control to generate, create EAN / UCC - 14 image in Software applications.
Zoob (made by Primordial) is a truly unique form of construction toy. A Zoob piece consists of a stem with a ball or socket on either end. You can create a wide variety of construction projects by linking the balls and sockets together. The balls are dimpled so they connect securely within their sockets. One practical application of Zoob is to create armatures for human- or animal-like robots. The Zoob pieces work in a way similar to bone joints.

Chaos sets are designed for structural construction projects: bridges, buildings, working elevator lifts, and the like. The basic Chaos set provides beams and connectors, along with chutes, pulleys, winches, and other construction pieces. Add-on sets are available that contain parts to build elevators, vortex tubes, and additional beams and connectors.

There are many other construction toys that you may find handy. Check the nearest wellstocked toy store or a toy retailer on the Internet for the following:
Expandagon Construction System (Hoberman) Fiddlestix Gearworks (Toys-N-Things) Gears! Gears! Gears! (Learning Resources) PowerRings (Fun Source) Zome System (Zome System) Construx (no longer made, but sets may still be available for sale)
Perhaps the most frequently imitated construction set has been the Meccano/Erector set line. Try finding these imitators, either in new, used, or thrift stores:
Exacto Mek-Struct Steel Tec
11.2 Specialty Toys for Robot Hacking
Some toys and kits are just made for hacking (retrofitting, remodeling) into robots. Some are already robots, but you may design them to be controlled manually instead of interfacing to control electronics. The following sections describe some specialty toys you may wish to experiment with.
11.2.1 ROBOSAPIEN
Robosapien is a humanoid robot created by Mark Tilden, the inventor of BEAM robotics. The robot itself is controlled by an infrared remote control and can either perform individual actions (move a leg or an arm, grunt, or grasp) or they can be programmed into a sequence of instructions that the robot will follow. Along with this rudimentary sequenced programming ability, the Robosapien also has a number of sensors (including collision sensors in its feet) that can be used to cause the robot to respond to its environment (again in a very simple manner). Since its introduction in late 2003, the Robosapien has been the target of many different hacks, including coming up with ways to create sequences on a computer rather than through the remote control and replacing the central processor in the robot with either a programmable microcontroller or even a PDA, which provides a much higher level of control. These hacks are well documented on a variety of different web sites, and there are a number of books detailing how the Robosapien is constructed and what can be done to modify it.
11.2.2 TAMIYA
Tamiya is a manufacturer of a wide range of radio-controlled models. It also sells a small selection of gearboxes in kit form that you can use for your robot creations. One of the most
11.2 SPECIALTY TOYS FOR ROBOT HACKING
useful is a dual-gear motor, which consists of two small motors and independent drive trains. You can connect the long output shafts to wheels, legs, or tracks. Tamiya also sells a dual-motor, tracked tractor-shovel kit (see Fig. 11-5) that you control via a switch panel. You can readily substitute the switch panel with computerized control circuitry that will provide for full forward and backward movement of the tank treads as well as the up and down movement of the shovel.
