Apeiros Robot comes with everything you need to get started with a fully functioning factory-assembled and tested robot. Apeiros comes pre-loaded with the example Obstacle Avoidance sketch, so that you can begin exploring the world of robotics right out of the box! Be sure to check out the Lessons page for how to get started with your Apeiros Robot.
Apeiros can be programmed from a computer using any operating system that supports the Arduino environment. This includes Microsoft Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, XP, Linux, and Mac OS X. A USB A to Mini-B (not included) is required for programming.
NOTE: It may take 2-5 days for your Apeiros Robot to ship because each robot is hand assembled in the USA.
