Robotics on the Apple II

Any sources for where I can find a small robotic arm / mobile rover / turtle etc for the Apple II and the software and interfaces to run it?
I recall there used to be a RHINO kit in the 1980s but can't find even used examples. Thanks

Apple II Robot

These robotic additions are so rare, that I have not seen one for sale in the past 4 years. Now with that being said, you would be better off building your own.
There are several good books on building and interfacing projects to the Apple II. These can usually be picked up through Amazon or Ebay, and you will learn alot in the process.

Sadly I am unable to bid on this item, as the seller will not ship overseas

Hmmm . . . it's still viable

The auction calculated the cost for shipping to the USA, so I think that he will ship overseas (I'll re-read it).

Also, he does have 4 Apple II interfaces that he is selling separately that include the software drivers! This auction ends sooner than the other one! (a day + from now).

He also is selling the power supplies for this device on yet a third auction.

There was a Fischertechnik in

There was a Fischertechnik interface when this first came up for auction.
I asked the seller about shipping to the UK and he was unable to do so.
