The Thames & Kosmos Robotics: Smart Machines Super Sphere offers to build an awesome, nine-inch-diameter, rolling robotic sphere and six other robot models. Drive your robots using the remote-control interface in the included app, which you can install on your tablet or smartphone. Or write programs for your robots using an easy, visual programming language in the app. The onboard sound sensor lets you program your robots to perform specific sequences of commands in response to the number of claps (or other very loud sounds) that it detects.
This kit gives kids a simple, fun, and customizable introduction to robotics that lets them build seven motorized machines controlled by programs and a sound sensor. Each robot model moves in a unique and interesting way, demonstrating how the same mechanical parts can come together to yield many different results.
Construct the Super Sphere robot, which has two motors and a sound sensor mounted inside a hollow, spherical shell made of 32 interlocking plastic pieces. Learn about the inner mechanics and the fascinating physics principles that enable the Super Sphere to drive forward, backward, and turn left and right.
Program a funny dancing robot that can shake, wiggle, and twirl on command. Make your own robotic game of cornhole and try to toss the pieces into the hole as it moves around. Each robot comes with a preset program that you can run immediately after building it. After learning how the technology works, you can build and program your own robots using the kit’s 182 building pieces.
A full-color, 60-page, step-by-step illustrated manual helps you assemble all of the models and includes information about robotics in the real world, as well as the inspirations for the fantastic robot models in the kit. In addition to the robotics experiments, you can conduct hands-on experiments in three-dimensional geometry using triangular and pentagonal shell pieces.
