  • Bit:Bot Robot for BBC Micro:Bit (BitBot for MicroBit) (BITBOT)
    Bit:Bot Fully Integrated Robot for the BBC Micro:Bit

    NB. BBC Micro:Bit is NOT included unless specifically selected with the checkbox

    This (almost) ready-assembled robot requires no soldering, no wires and nothing more than a screwdriver to complete it.

    The Bit:Bot fully engages children and adults alike, allowing you to explore and code the BBC Micro:Bit using any of the languages available (not all features are supported in all languages)

    Learn here how to control the Bit:Bot with your Bluetooth phone

     *NEW* There is now a Microsoft PXT package for Bit:Bot (thanks to Sten Roger Sandvik, @stenrs on Twitter). Go to the Advanced tab or the Tools gear icon and select Add Package, then search for BitBot
     

    Check out these features:
    • 2 micro-metal gear motors. Both fully controllable in software, for both speed (0 to 100%) and direction (forward or reverse)
    • Wheels with rubber tyres for maximum grip
    • Really smooth metal ball front caster
    • 12 mini neopixels in 2 sets of 6 along the arms either side. Select any colour for any pixel, produce stunning lighting effects as your Bit:Bot moves around
    • 2 digital line following sensors. Code your own line-following robots and race them to see whose code produces the fastest lap time!
    • 2 analog light sensors (front left and front right) so your Bit:Bot can be programmed to follow a light source such as a torch, or you could code it to go and hide in the darkest place it can find
    • Buzzer, so you can make beeping sounds whenever you want
    • Powered from integrated 3xAA battery holder with on/off switch and blue indicator LED
    • Easily plug your BBC micro:bit in and out using the edge connector
    • Extension port for addition neopixels (such as McRoboFace)
    • Expansion connections at the front for additional sensors (Ultrasonic rangefinder available now, more in development)
    Optionally, you can add an Ultrasonic Distance Sensor (rangefinder) module. The sensor can be either soldered to the module, or connected via a socket. No soldering is required for either version. The socketed version makes it easier to connect a micro-USB lead to the Micro:Bit, but the soldered version is more robust.

    We also have an option for a pen holder that is fitted at the back. This can be plain, or have LEDs on to create a glow ring effect around the pen

  • CrumbleBot Mk2 Robot for Crumble (CrumBot2) (CRMBOT2)
    CrumbleBot Mk2 Robot for Crumble Adventures and Experiments

    The CrumbleBot Mk2 is an ideal way to introduce young (and old) children to robotics using the fantastic Crumble controller.

    All programming with the Crumble is extremely easy: drag, drop and click is all that is required to accomplish hundreds of simple and more complex tasks

    CrumbleBot Mk2 builds on the success of the Mk1 with lots more features:
    • 8 Super-bright RGB LEDs - 'Sparkles'
    • 2 push-button switches
    • Easy to use Buzzer
    • Simple jumper connection system - removes the need for croc clips
    • "Wire-free", low-profile battery holder (no USB connectors or wires to get broken)
    • Modified motor mounting positions to reduce dust ingress into the gearbox
    • Improved, smooth-running, front caster
    • Powered front accessory connector
    • Additional mounting holes near rear to allow fitting of a "second deck"

    With this robot kit you can do experiments for:
    • Basic movements (forward, reverse, left spin, right spin)
    • More complex turns (by moving one motor slower than the other)
    • Line following using the built-in line sensors with indicators
    • Light seeking or light avoiding using the built-in light sensors
    • Using the built-in Sparkles to give indications of what is happening
    • Use the built-in push-button switches to start/stop the program, change mode or anything else you want

    Simple programs to accomplish line following and light seeking are shown in the pictures for the listing.

    Crumble controller is NOT included unless option is selected

    Optional Addons available:
    • Ultrasonic distance sensor - simply screws on to the front powered accessory connector
    • Pen holder (with or without "halo" LEDs)

  • MeArm - The Robot Arm taking the world by storm (MEARM)
    The MeArm is a fantastic, low-cost and easy to build robotic arm with a natty little gripper. It comes complete with all the fixings and 4 servos you need to assemble it.

    All the files for the MeArm are open-source so if you fancy building one for as little money as possible, please give it a go.


    The latest version is a stable base model and that's what you see here today. It ships with all the acrylic parts you'll need as well as all of the fixings and four hobby servos.

    The most recent instructions for the #meArm are available as a pdf and at instructables.com

    Our basic testing has involved driving the servos straight from an Arduino, using a simple shield and four 10k Ohm potentiometers. The code for that can be found in the MeArm Github

    Software exists for the Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone Black and Espruino, as the MeArm community is amazing!

    • Learn coding by extending the example programs using the full-featured library

    Included Examples
    • Line following
    • Obstacle avoidance
    • Light seeking
    • Light avoiding
    • Colour reaction to environment Light vs Distance, Colour vs Light received, etc
    • Follow my leader (pulse the rear LED and get second Picobot to follow a pulsing white light)
    • Stay fixed distance from object/person - eg. get it to follow you around

    Base Model Comprises All you Need to get Going
    • Ready assembled circuit board with motors and lots of sensors - pre-programmed with examples
    • Acrylic case - 4 screws to fit it together
    • Rechargeable battery

  • DFRobot Insect Bot - Arduino-based Complete Kit (DFRINSECT)
    The Insect Bot mini is an easy to assemble robot for young engineers from 6 to 100 years. With assembling this robot you will learn the basic robotics in terms of how all the components work together. There is a microcontroller which is working as the robot brain and two servo motors for the movement. The IR sensor on it's head will act as an eye to detect obstacles in front. The programming can be done by simply connecting the Beetle controller with the USB port on your computer. It is the best way to start building robot on Arduino.



    Assembling parts

    The brain of Insectbot is "world’s smallest Leonardo", a.k.a. Beetle. It is ideal for DIY projects, wearable projects and etc. Its body is made up of two 9-gram servos powered by a rechargable 3.7V LiPo battery. Its eyes are an infrared sensor to detect obstacles. It requires no special tools except a soldering iron, scissors, screwdriver, pliers. You can decorate your Insectbot Mini to give him a unique, cute or funny Christmas outfit. We also provide a step-by-step instruction to help you assemble it.

    Programming for Insectbot

    We provide 3 programming languages for you such as Ardublock, Mind+ and Arduino IDE. For beginners, you can program it simply by dragging and dropping pre-designed blocks visa visual programming softwares Ardublock and Mind+. For advanced DIYers, you also modify Arduino IDE for your liking.
