DESCRIPTION MBOT RANGER
Off-Road Land Raider
Being an off-road robot tank, Land Raider is designed to handle a wider variety of terrain than most other vehicles or robot car.
Dashing Raptor, the Predator
Transform your Land Raider easily, turning it into Dashing Raptor, which is a three-wheeled racing car that runs/spins fast like a raptor which eagers to catch its game.
Self-Balance Nervous Bird
A smart self-balance car which remains level when driving straight or standing still and leans at an angle when making turns.
Latest Me Auriga mainboard developed based on open-source Arduino Mega 2560. It provides not only 5 on-board sensors, but also 10 extension ports that enable you to add more functions per needed.
Graphical Programming from PC
mBot Ranger is fully compatible with mBlock which is a graphical programming environment based on Scratch 2.0 Open Source Code. It makes programming projects and interactive applications easier through simply dragging and dropping function blocks.
In addition to PC programming, mBot Ranger also supports being programmed from your iPad and tablets with an easy-to-use app – MakeblockHD. Explore with mBot Ranger using the existing projects, or develop your own.
MakeblockHD provides existing projects which enable you to interact with Ranger immediately. Push the button to control Ranger wirelessly and start having fun! Using Bluetooth or 2.4G.
Free Online Courses
Provide 16 chapters of courses on graphical programming with Ranger, helping kids to enjoy the fun of programming in various game scenes step by step.
Modules in this kit all equipped with RJ25 ports for easy wiring. Just by connecting the modules together, robots can be built in a really quick way. All the wiring is simple and very clean.
Fully compatible with Makeblock platform (about 400 parts totally), allowing you to develop more projects or ideas adding Makeblock parts on Ranger or to explore hundreds of free projects online for more fun.
