Parallax’s Scribbler 3 (S3) is a fully-assembled, preprogrammed, reprogrammable, and hackable robot that’s well suited for students and electronics enthusiasts. You can program the S3 in Parallax’s Graphical User Interface (GUI) software or its BlocklyProp tool. The visual programming support in Google’s Blockly makes learning to program easier than ever.

The S3’s improvements over its predecessor include:

  • Rechargeable lithium ion battery pack
  • Exposed Hacker Port with access to I/O and high-current power connections
  • XBee socket inside for RF networking and future wireless programming
  • Line sensor improvement: easy to follow lines of all types with Blockly
  • Up to 25% faster

The Scribbler 3 robot costs $179.
