Build your own robot. Here I have a complete set from Issue 1 up to Issue number 96. I started to build this the robot’Cybot’ and the handset, but never completed it. The first 20 issues are in a Real Robots binder (see pictures). Some issues are not in the binder but the parts have been used in either Cybot or the Handset. Some of the issues have been removed from the wrapper but the parts are still separately sealed. The rest are still sealed in their wrappers. The robot and handset are only part built (carefully, by an adult) the remaining parts are all present to complete the build. This would be a great way to introduce a young person to the field of robotics and electronics and the robot could easily be dismantled again if you wanted to start from scratch. Included is the RR baseball cap (you only got if you subscribed, which I’ve machine washed) and the three introductory VHS cassettes if you can find anything to play them on! I’ve also found a couple of Cybot chassis which could be useful for spare parts or to use as the basis for a new robot project! Buyers are welcome to collect at a mutually convenient time (cash on collection). The box is very large (63cm x 47cm x 47cm) and heavy (19Kg). If you have any questions please ask! Real Robots was the name of a fortnightly partwork magazine by Eaglemoss Publications, started in May, 2001. Developed in partnership with Reading University, it allowed the reader to build a robot, “Cybot”, and later a companion robot, “Tom”. (This series, which was released in eight countries, is now discontinued). There were 96 issues of the magazine, divided into 5 phases. Phase 1 – Issues 1 to 17 – Cybot is built, and is able to follow lines on the floor, and sense light and objects. Phase 2 – Issues 18 to 40 – A remote control is built, along with a docking station, allowing Cybot to be programmed. Some issues also contain alternate body pieces, transforming Cybot into a’Team Cybot’, a formula-1 styled robot. Phase 3 – Issues 41 to 55 – Cybot becomes voice controlled with the addition of a headset to wear and some additional components for the remote control. Phase 4 – Issues 56 to 70 – Cybot learns to play’football’. Infrared location sensors are added to Cybot, as well as Infrared beacons in the form of a ball and a goal. Phase 5 – Issues 71 to 96 – TOM (Tracking Orbital Module) is built. TOM is a smaller robot than Cybot, with a similar look. Its features include scanning sonar, a higher speed, full programmability,’emotions’, and interaction with Cybot.
