Drawing on the popularity of the Tiny Tank, I decided that some folks might want wheels instead. I give you, Little Wheels.

The Little Wheels Robot is a great little bot for beginners and experienced robot builders alike. Simple, well designed and cute as a button, it is just a gosh darn good little bot.

Step 1: Getting Started

Picture of Getting Started
Let's get ready to get going.

Open up your kit and separate all the pieces/parts. The hardware baggies are divided into chassis, stand-offs and sensor bracket (head). I have found that these little screws have an amazing ability to jump off your desk --I suggest a muffin tin to hold them while you are working. 

You will need:
  • Soldering Iron and rosin core (flux core) solder
  • Little screw drivers
  • Needle nose pliers or tweezers
  • Wire strippers
  • X-acto knife
