The AFRON “10 Dollar Robot” Design Challenge

The ‘10 Dollar Robot‘ Design Challenge calls for programmable and cost effective robotic designs. The goal of these designs is to learn how to program robots or to simply do physical computing with an affordable set of hardware parts, that can move and sense theyr environment. The outcome of this challenge is especially targeted for use in African countries and other emerging economies (but the competition is open to anyone worldwide). You can win Raspberry Pi boards and a little bit of additional money to buy hardware 🙂
