Sparkfun.com has recently released a simple, easy and useful robot platform for robotics amateurs. It is called “Magician Chassis”. You can use the chassis for different kinds of robots, for example, line sensing, obstacle detecting and smart phone controlled robots. I have recently published an easy project about smart phone controlled robot. I have also used Magician Chassis on my project. I recommend this chassis for robotics amateurs and novices because it is cheaper than other products I have known. You can use it for learning and experimenting the basics of robotics.

You get these components in the Magician Chassis package:

How to assemble Magician Chassis

Step 1: You have two chassis boards, CHASSIS-UP and CHASSIS-BOTTOM. Put motor holders on Chassis-Bottom.
