mBot Paves The Way For Younger Programmers

There’s nothing better than toys that encourage learning. With today’s technological developments, however, parents are looking for toys that are a bit better than the typical “shape slots.”

The market answers with the development of the mBot. Think LEGOs but so much better as the assembly teaches kids all about STEM or Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. It is not your typical LEGO because the MBot comes with Bluetooth controls and arguably, a little bit harder to solve. It takes about 10 minutes to get this MBot fully built but all the while, kids are learning about robotics, assembly, engineering, and a whole lot of other possibilities.

The MBot has 38 assembly parts, all color-labeled and featuring RRJ25 ports that let you connect it to various wirings. Once the necessary connections are made, you can do whatever you want with it, creating a “dream robot” that could avoid obstacles, be controlled by remotes, and even included in different computer games like soccer and sumo. Thanks to the flexibility of the electronics, you’re free to program as widely as you want to get the results you’re hoping for. The beauty of this is that it provides a “clean slate” system that essentially lets you test out codes, run them, and see if there are any gaps in the program. Ideal for budding tech engineers, the MBot could be your kid’s very first experiment in virtual intelligence.

What makes the MBot even greater is that it’s built to work with LEGO fittings. This means that it can easily be integrated in your LEGO creations, allowing you to build whatever you want. With LEGO essentially a blank slate, imagination is really your only limit.

Perfect for families, the MBot actually comes with a large scale version that is ideal for group use – like classrooms. With the “fun” added in, MBot makes it possible to bring “programming” to the younger generation.
