Absolutely no experience needed! Learn robot building from the ground up, hands-on, in full color!

Love robots? Start building them. It's way easier than you ever imagined!

John Baichtal has helped thousands of people get started with robotics. He knows what beginners need to know. He knows your questions. He knows where you might need extra help. Now, he's brought together this practical knowledge in one incredibly easy tutorial.

Hundreds of full-color photos guide you through every step, every skill. You'll start simple, as you build a working robot in the very first chapter. Then, you'll grow your skills to expert-level: powering motors, configuring sensors, constructing a chassis, even programming low-cost Arduino microcontrollers.

You'll learn hands-on, through real step-by-step projects...and go straight to the cutting-edge with in-depth sidebars. Wondering just how much you can really do? Baichtal shows you 30 incredible robots built by people just like you!

A founding member of the pioneering Twin Cities Maker hackerspace, he got his start writing for Wired's legendary GeekDad blog, and for DIYer bible MAKE Magazine.
