There are a few books on their site regarding BASIC for early home computers, but the book that got my attention is the book pictured above, How to Make Computer Controlled Robots. I remember borrowing this book from the library as a kid, and I really wanted to make one of the robots that are outlined in the book.

I never did make the robotĀ of course, but now I have a digital copy of the book, I’m tempted to give it a go. It will go on my list of things to do some day.
