Hi guys, first time poster here.


I mentor a high school engineering and competition-robotics team (FIRST Team 195 - http://team195.com/) from Southington, CT. We build task oriented (vs fighting) robots and compete against other high schools from around the world.


This year we are using some fairly sophisticated targeting software run via labview in order to aim our ball launcher at the goal. This has required the use of a separate (from the robot controller) targeting PC on-board the robot. This runs windows 10 and a stripped down version of labview so we can use the resources of the PC to cover the vision duties while the robot controller focuses on running the robot. We acquired a Kangaroo Plus from Newegg before they went out of stock and we desire another one as a spare. If the one we have breaks we are dead in the water.


I understand these units are popular for home theater PCs so I'm scouring the earth to find a spare to buy for my students. Here is the unit I need - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16856659001 Please note this is the "plus" version, with extra RAM as this is key for our targeting software. If you have one for sale please reach out to me at my email [email protected]


Here's a video of our robot from our latest competition for those interested -

Thanks in advance, have a great day!
