What is Starter Robot Kit?
The Makeblock Starter robot kit is a start for you to dip your toes in the waters of the robotics and maker world. With a set of beginner-friendly instructions, it takes you step-by-step on learning robotics, electronics and programming.
- Excellent choice for beginners to learn electronics, graphic programming Scratch, and Arduino programming
- Build a robot tank or a three-wheel robot car.
- Bluetooth connection lets you control your robot with your smartphone or tablet
- Step by step instructions
- Aluminum extrusion structure
- Easy wiring, no soldering required
Enhanced Hands-on Ability
With heavy-duty mechanical parts, easy-to-use electronic modules like Me Orion, ultrasonic sensor, and IR receiver, you can get an enhanced hands-on experience on building a robot tank or a three-wheel robot car that is programmable.
Easy but Powerful mBlock
Starter Robot Kits is fully compatible with mBlock which is a graphical programming environment based on Scratch 2.0 Open Source Code. It makes programming projects and interactive applications easier through simply dragging and dropping function blocks.
Support Scratch & Arduino Programming
Learning programming is way more fun when your code controls a robot. Based around an Arduino board, this kit will teach you all about programming a micro-controller board to control physical objects using sensors.
One Kit, Two Robots
Follow the detailed, beginner-friendly instructions to construct your choice of a robot tank or three-wheel robot car.
Three-wheeled Robot Car
The three-wheeled robot car is the other robot you can build with the starter kit. Two tires and a caster wheel enable this three-wheeled robot car to move smoothly.
Connecting 38 tracks together, this starter robot kit can be built as a robot tank. With the ultrasonic sensors, the robot tank will be able to detect obstacles in a timely fashion and correspondingly change its direction to avoid collisions.
Modules in this kit are all equipped with RJ25 ports for easy wiring. By connecting the modules together, the robots can be built really quickly. All the wiring is simple and very clear.
