Weasel is a tenacious little robot warrior that embodies two sensors that allow it to â€œseeâ€ a line or â€œfeelâ€ its way along walls and around corners. The two motors and contact sensor activate the wall sensing micro switch to control the motorsâ€™ on/off operation that determines the path of a wall. It is the classic robot design using the â€œLeft Hand Ruleâ€ to escape mazes. With OWIâ€™s continued pursuit in making robots â€œsmartâ€, they have added an additional feature to this little bundle of energyâ€¦ a sonic tracking system. Underneath Weaselâ€™s sturdy plastic base, you will discover photo- transistors that enable it to detect and follow a black line. Wow! Weasel still has more features! Wantâ€¦ speed? Well, its three-speed gearbox will help navigate at the velocity you determine. This is a Beginner Soldering Series robot that make great entrants for robotic competitions, robotic workshops, after-school programs, special events, gifts, science enrichment camps, and classroom activities. Weasel has been selected by the Children's Institute For Childhood Resources as one of the "100 Best Children's Products" and "10 Best Software/High Tech Products" for 2003.
