I just wanted to ask as I have some cash burning a hole in my pocket, with EZ Robot's name on it. Any news on the shop being on schedule to re-open today?
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Harnessing the power of ARC Pro, your robot can be more than just a simple automated machine.

@DJ... Seriously, the ez robot website is looking more and more professional as time goes on.... everyone one here craves more of your products ... I think we need to clone you
I got one really like the new look. The drop down descriptions are pretty neat too. If I could make a smell suggestion, it would be on the "Robot Kits" page. The revolution bots look great with the new background colour scheme, but the dev kit could do with a bit of colour to match the rest. But that's the only criticism I have. The new videos are great too.
Does it entice me to buy? Well I placed an order within an hour of the shop re-opening, and waiting patiently to place a second one for the infamous Adventure Bot and a few bits. So to answer the question... Yep, it sure does.
All in all, yes my friend, the shop looks absolutely great. Nice job.
Personally I love the new darker feel for the robots pages in the shop but I'm a fan of light on dark.
i dont see any new parts.
yes offcourse i forgot that.
aislinn made it possible to get the endparts choulder 6x.
now am looking for the wright case.
i post pics and video when its reddy.
will take some time do.
When I click "Shop" the background displayed under the shop by category images is light gray. Firefox 36.0 on Windoze
The "JD" text looks good in blue but the price is almost invisible in white and the description loads in medium gray, again almost invisible on a light gray background.
I'm fairly certain I clicked again on "Robot Kits" after the "Shop" page loaded as I did not realize the kits were already at the bottom of the screen due to the low contrast of these items.
Also note that only the "Robot Kits" page starts off with a product right away, all other pages start with black text cluing you in to the fact that you have arrived at your destination, ie. if you click "Power" the first thing you see on the bottom half of the screen in big black text is "Revolution - Power", if you click "Sensors" the first thing you see at the bottom half of the screen in big black letters is "Revolution - Sensors ", etc.
A note on "Find a Retailer".
This is a frustrating exercise which I went through before I found out there was no Adventure Bot to be found anywhere. Does any retailer stock parts? I have no clue what each carry before I click, or if one is closer to me than another.
Why would I pick one retailer over the other? Maybe a simple zip code search or real time stock count (if they are meant to be stocking dealers) would help so I don't pull my hair out and order from a competitor.
Clicks come at a premium.
As for the shop page - sounds as if your web browser has cached artifacts. F5 is the usual refresh button, I would recommend using it when a page is updated :). That's how the Internet works with caching to help you pages load quicker.
Hope that helps!
Without this, the internet would be dog slow.
Yeah, you nailed it. The Robot Kit page looks fantastic now with the dev kit's matching colour scheme. Looking seriously cool and "even more" professional now than before.
Perhaps making the writing font a slightly darker shade or colour, like grey, may help (mainly talking about the Dev Kit). Just a thought as I can read it fine, but others may struggle. I still love the dark background, as Rich said, it's easier on the eyes, and looks pretty slick. I hope you don't change it.
White text on black background is great for visibility on larger fonts (think fast food menu board).
