This looks likes a Discovery Kit.
I'm not sure if I should thank you or curse you.
I bought all five.
The S2 is one of my favorite Parallax robots. I really like how the graphical interface produces Spin code. I use a lot of S2 code in other robots.
Edit: Thank you erco. Those were a great find.
Merry Christmas, Duane! Nice to meet another hoarder! I agree, S2 is a great robot, I have several... IMO the S3 came out too soon after S2 and so it got lost in the melee.
And 'tis the season of the Heat Miser so your icon is on point!
Still one $69 Boebot left after my niece got one for her son.
And 5 more cheap S2s, Duane! Just $20 each for 4 or more, plus ~ $10 shipping each. Looks like the cable & USB adapter are included: https://www.ebay.com/itm/153891814778
A good day on Ebay! Just today I got:
A new USB BoeBot for $56: https://www.ebay.com/itm/154761927038
Two BASIC Stamp 2's for $30 (took my offer): https://www.ebay.com/itm/234337255391
And a Toshiba laptop for $51: https://www.ebay.com/itm/265473877965
And my niece did get that first Boebot for her son, so I'm getting my family hooked on Parallax too.
Don't we know somebody that lives in Truckee, California?
I picked up the Eddie base you referred to as I have the proper wheel assemblies to go with it.
Saw that, I went to share the Ebay link in the free encoder thread. You had PM'ed about it and the base was gone, so I hoped you were the culprit buyer.
@"Duane Degn" that seller keeps asking me if I want to buy... he has used S2s for $20 (4 or more) plus shipping. Says he'll include 2 cables with 4 bots. And he agrees he can ship four cheaper than Ebay's estimate.
How big a swarm do you need, Boss?
Another new S2, down to just $32, Duane.
