Robotics Smart Machines: Robots

A simple, fun, and customizable introduction to robotics!

Item #:


Robotics Smart Machines: Programmable Robots Engineering Kit gives kids a simple, fun, and customizable introduction to robotics that lets them build eight different robot, motorized machines controlled by programs and an ultrasound sensor. Robotics is a vast, thrilling, and sometimes overwhelming interdisciplinary field involving physics, engineering, and computer science.

  • Code the programs using an easy, visual programming app on a tablet or smartphone, which connects to the robot models via a wireless Bluetooth connection
  • Visual programming language allows you to command the robots' motors to move at different times, different power levels, in different directions, and in response to the data from the sensor
  • Ultrasonic sensor works on the same principle as sonar sending out sound waves, which bounce off objects, interprets the echoes returning to it, and from this detects objects in the path of the sensor
  • Using the app interface, program the robots you build to behave based on the feedback coming from the ultrasound sensor
  • You can also add simple sounds to your programs
  • After learning how the technology works, build and program your own robots
  • Full-color, 64-page step-by-step illustrated manual helps kids assemble all of the models and teaches them about robotics in the real world
  • For System Operating Requirements see Specs Tab
  • Engineering Kit contains: Manual, 230 pieces
  • Ages: 8-14

Robot Models include:
  • Bipedal Humanoid Droid that walks forward on two legs and pivots to avoid obstacles in its path
  • Stag Beetle that moves backwards or forwards in response to an obstacle, and opens and closes its pincers
  • Crocodile that wags its tail if no object is in sight, but then opens its giant jaws when an object approaches
  • Spy Bot using an additional smartphone and tablet, you can even hack together a cute little spy-bot that roams around and streams video back to the tablet screen
  • Tiltrotor Aircraft dual-rotor drone rotates its rotor blades 90 degrees
  • Other fun robots include: Robo Dog, Robotosaurus, and Catapult
