Robotics is a vast and exciting field that merges physics, engineering, and computer science. This kit offers kids a simple, engaging, and customizable entry into robotics, enabling them to construct eight motorized machines controlled by programs and an ultrasound sensor.
Kids code these programs using an intuitive visual programming app on their tablet or smartphone, establishing a wireless Bluetooth connection with the robot models. The ultrasonic sensor functions similarly to sonar, emitting sound waves that bounce off objects. It interprets the returning echoes to detect objects in its path. With the app interface, you can program your robots to respond to feedback from the ultrasound sensor.
Create a walking humanoid robot that dodges obstacles. Craft a stag beetle model that moves and reacts to objects. Construct a playful crocodile model that wags its tail and opens its jaws when an object approaches. For even more fun, use an extra smartphone and tablet to assemble a spy-bot that streams video back to your tablet screen.
A full-color, 64-page illustrated manual guides kids through model assembly and imparts real-world robotics knowledge. The visual programming language allows precise control over the robots' motors, including timing, power levels, and directions based on sensor data.
Please note, this kit requires a tablet or smartphone running iOS or Android. Check the app stores for compatibility and device requirements. Embark on a robotics journey and let your young engineers unleash their creativity and problem-solving skills!
