Easy to build
The user-friendly design and clear visual instructions make assembling mBot easy. Each electronic module is color-coded according to its matching connector on the mainboard for effortless connection. We have also designed a 3D building manual to free children from verbose descriptions and help them to learn how to build step by step. Meanwhile, children get to know the mechanical structure and develop spatial intelligence.
Leveling up coding skills through gameplays
Round 1 – Playing with the controls: There are two ways in which you can direct mBot without the need for programming. 1. Open the Makeblock App. With one click you can use the remote control driving function, voice control or the “Draw and Run” function. 2. Use the Makeblock Bluetooth Controller to control mBot. There are 15 buttons and 2 joysticks, making its operation smooth and easy. Positive experiences operating the robot can help children form a bond with mBot quickly, and further stimulate their interest in programming.
Round 2 – Gamified learning: Together with the mBlock Blockly App, program your mBot to unlock coding skill by simply dragging and dropping the command blocks. Your mBot answers your commands to accomplish game tasks, making learning and playing one and the same.
Round 3 – Advanced programming: Want to learn more skills? Try mBlock. Simply drag and combine command modules like building blocks to control the movements of mBot. You can also switch to Ardunio C text-based programming with one click, to continue advancing your skills. If you want to wirelessly link mBot to your computer, you can use the Makeblock Bluetooth Dongle to speed up the programming.
3 pre-set control modes
mBot has three built-in control modes including obstacle avoidance mode, line-follow mode, and manual control mode.
- Obstacle Avoidance
- Line Follower
- Manual Control
Create a wide range of different shapes with mBot’s flexible body
mBot has 4 expansion ports, and can connect to more than 100 kinds of electronic modules. Children can use add-on packs and Makerspace platform to build a variety of imaginative works. mBot is also compatible with other building bricks meaning gameplay can continue to grow over time.
Code it from all platform
the mBlock Blockly App (iOS/Android) is a great place to train the logical thinking for new coders. The advanced mBlock software (Windows/MacOS/Linux/Chrome) is one of the most popular entry-level coding platform with more than 450,000+ users that helps you to bring your creativity into reality.
