Arduino 4wd robot with ping sensor "J-Bot"

Navigates around using the Ping sensor

Someone mentioned that Jameco needed a robotic mascot. I have always been a tinkerer, especially with radio-controlled electronics and so I volunteered for the chance to design and create the J-Bot. While this was my first autonomous robot build, I'm confident it won't be my last. We thought this would be a fun project to build.

It looks very good. I already made a robot like this but I would be interested in a slightly more advanced kit. Do you know of a multi-sensor robot kit? (arduino based)
Do you think it would be possible if we submitted robot ideas to you, you would be willing to sell it on jameco's website?
