Wink - Learn to code with this entry level robot.

Wink was designed as a learning platform for people who are totally new to writing computer code. Wink's motors are fast and can be independently driven forward or backward and at any variable speed. Wink's eyes can be programmed to any color. Three light sensors on the top side enable light seeking and behaviors activated by lights. An infrared barrier headlight can be used together with the ambient light sensors to detect obstacles several inches in front of the robot. An array of four bottom sensors allow for high speed line following as well as edge detection.
