No, haven't heard about it, sorry.  I've forwarded your email to our
email list hoping that someone has and might be able to respond.

Not really.  There is one cal WAOII from the OWI MOVIT kits that
may be ok, but I've never used it so I don't know how hard it would

BEAM group, they also have some robots that might be what you're
looking for.
