Hmm I'm not very sure what robot you're referring to, but I remember reading in a robot book about a robot that uses a sandwich box as its main chassis. Is that the robot you're talking about?

Yeh thats a very good robot to start out with, just one thing- if you don't have it alredy ( I'm assuming that you do) get his book Robot Building for Beginners by David Cook cause that goes into depth with step by step instruction on how to build it. Good luck with it!

The people that aren't as good with robotics, take the electrical parts since they can't design it on their own and put it on their own body. (Or at least thats I do)

It's a very good way to learn how to design your own robot. After you follow someone else's instructions, you get a feel for why they made the decisions they did, and maybe some ideas of what you would change. So you learn from it and can design your own robot in the future :)

In any case, it's always good to learn from what others have done and go from there..

To each his own I guess.. $100 for a valuable learning experience, and a robot at the end of it, is pretty worth it sometimes.

Of course, reading tutorials online and watching videos help a lot, but there tends to be lots of subtle things that you don't notice until you actually build a robot on your own. Following someone else's robot helps in that regard, so you don't end up spending a couple of hundred before realizing that you missed out something important in your own design.
