Looks ok but is too expensive and should come with vision as standard.
$1595 for a OOPIC version is way too expensive. That should have been what the Linux version costs maybe.
I see about $200 in the base, $100 for sensors maybe, then whatever the MCU or CPU would cost on top of that. So a Atmel ARM costs about $399 for a eval board.
Thus we have about $700.00 for a bot, now toss in a 40% markup for profits and we get about $1000 for a Embedded Linux robot.
I didn't think that a ABS plastic body would cost $800 to $900 either, maybe $100 or so.
But who knows maybe there are a lot of buyers for it.
