Boe-Bot Designs Archive

An advantage of the Boe-Bot is that it has been consistent over the years. Once a teacher is comfortable with it then there is a long time that the knowledge can be applied. But there have been a few revisions and permutations. This page does not cover modifications such as adding tracks or gripper; it is the evolution of the Boe-Bot itself and some spin-offs.
