Using a series of modular balls that easily connect together, a virtually endless number of robots can be built. Building and modifying robots is fast and simple using hot-plugin, a feature that allows the balls to be connected and disconnected without the need to turn off the power. A Battery Ball powers other components that drive the robot, sense colors and objects nearby and even pick things up. A Brain Ball controls it all along with two intuitive Apps that make programming fun and easy, the Mabot Go App and the more advanced, Mabot IDE App.
For beginners, the Mabot Go App includes pre-set, step-by-step build instructions for more than 10 robots that guide new builders toward their goal while demonstrating basic coding. Once users are ready to take it to the next level, the advanced Mabot IDE App is used to program the robot for more complicated tasks using coding blocks similar to Arduino. Having two Apps creates a pathway to learning for young programmers who can learn and grow at their own pace.
Mixing and matching the robotic modules lets kids create robots with different looks, uses and functions. The Mabot is also compatible with the popular Lego brand toys, putting a modern spin on a classic kid's favorite and adding another dimension to creative building.
The Team behind Mabot is Bell Educational Group, a leader in robotic learning curriculum for kids. They developed Mabot in response to feedback from parents and teachers about the difficulty of getting kids interested in STEM learning. Mabot was created as a powerful learning tool for youngsters age six and up to engage kids in a totally new and fun way of learning robotics and programming.
Mabot is currently being launched via a Kickstarter campaign so they can reward early adopters with special deals and pricing.
