Arlo Complete Robot System

Parallax has finally released a complete system package for the Arlo:

If you’ve been thinking of building one, it has gotten a lot easier now with the complete package. In fact my “parts list” dropped from a dizzying grocery list to essentially 3 items:

Also, TurtleBot is experimenting with a new 3D sensor to replace the Kinect/Xtion:

This should also help with sourcing parts as those have gotten harder and harder to find.
