UBTECH Jimu Builderboots Overdrive Kit
Hands up who doesn’t want to build their own Robot? Thought not! Ok, so strictly speaking this is intended for the kids in your life, aged 8 and upwards, but it sure is a whole load of creative and constructive fun, and you might just want in on the buildable action for yourself. With this 410 piece kit that comprises connectors, parts, and fasteners, you can create a codable robot. Download the free app from JIMU too and open up a whole extended world of coding possibilities so that you can program your robot to perform endless tricks. It’s fun and educational all at the same time and sure beats having their heads stuck in a screen all day.
You can opt to build either the Dozerbot or the Dirtbot robot using the 3D, 360-degree animated instructions that carefully guide you through the entire process or you could just get creative and construct your own unique Jimu robot. The Blockly Coding system is an easy drag and drop coding system, no IT experience required! You can customize sequences and program your robot to perform cool tricks like picking up objects, navigating obstacles and it can also be programmed to control lights, sound effects and even show emotions.
The UBTECH Jimu robot features flexible movements made possible through its proprietary designed, high-torque robotic motors. Its good old fashioned constructive and creative fun that challenges the mind requires collaboration and also manual dexterity. Included with your Jimu robot you also get 2 DC motors, 1 sonar system with LED lights, a control box and a USB charger.
With a heap of coveted awards already under its robotic belt, including the Tillywig 2018 Brain Child Award and the CES 2017 Innovation Award, this is fun for all the family, young and old and makes a fantastic gift idea.
