Hi there I don't see how building $50 robot can cost $200. Even if You haven't got anything to start with it shouldn't cost much more than £50.I've actually made a part list based on $50 Robot Tutorial. Have a look at it (attached to this post). All prices are as of 01/02/2012 taken from eBay (Buy it now; UK only);My opinion regarding kits (Such as LEGO NXT) is that after assembling them You still will not know how soldering works, how and why to pick certain parts and how and why they are used there, how to setup microcontroller (hardware and software), how to debug MCU You have built, how to program it, etc. You get my point. Kits are quite limited for their price, however being limited makes them very easy to use, not much fun though
The parts pdf is some what poor however. Sure it tells us what we need but where do we accumuilate such items? B&Q?

With the two resistors:340 ohm resistor 1.62Kohm resistorDo i just buy the ones from the US or should i buy the 360 ohm and 1.6k ohm resistors from the UK?
Instead of 340 ohm You can use 330 ohm + 10 ohm in series;Instead of 1.62k ohm You can use 1.6k + 20 ohm;
There's absolutely no need for this precision: [...]
