KikoRobot.962
KikoRobot.962
Our Price: $27.95

At first glance, KikoRobot.962 offers a distinct resemblance to the award-winning KIKO.893. But, upon further evaluation, one cannot help but notice KikoRobot.962 is the bigger, faster, stronger version of the little yellow robot from 2018. KikoRobot.962 comes equipped with the same I/R (infrared) and AI (artificial intelligence) technology that made the older version a fan favorite. Aside from that similarity, the two robots are a stark comparison. KikoRobot.962 features an improved gearbox and a new eight leg design, allowing the robot to reach higher speeds as it comically scurries around in both follow-me and explore mode, quickly leaving KIKO.893 in the dust. Boys and girls will love having a friendly robot companion pursue their every move, or complete handmade obstacles with ease. Parents will look on with glee as their budding engineers' ages 8+ complete this 192-piece STEAM kit and will be satisfied knowing that this playtime is both educational, and more importantly, fun!

Ages: 8+

Dimensions: 5.31" x 5.12" x 7.09"

No. of Pieces: 192

Batteries Required: 'AAA' x 4 (not included)

RE/CO Robot
RE/CO Robot
Our Price: $35.95

RE/CO Robot (RE/CO short for remote control) is the adventurous, off-roading sibling to KikoRobot.962. Like its family member, RE/CO comes equipped with an infrared sensor and artificial intelligence. But, where RE/CO Robot differs from KikoRobot.962 is its ability to be controlled wirelessly, and its tank-like tracks, that are perfect for rugged conditions. For the first time, future engineers will be able to interact with their OWI Infrared Robot kit, from a distance! With the wireless remote control added, RE/CO Robot can access new play modes like storytelling, singing, dancing, and even programming! Children can enjoy guiding RE/CO Robot over all sorts of terrain or allow the friendly robot to lead the way, using its infrared sensor to find a clear path, in patrol mode. For parents who look to get the most out of their children's playtime, RE/CO Robot is a great all-in-one package. Combining DIY assembling with 106-pieces, STEAM Learning with Infrared Sensors, Programming with easy directional commands, and having fun with the freedom of a handy wireless remote control.

Ages: 8+

Dimensions: 6.30" x 6.89" x 3.74"

No. of Pieces: 106

Batteries Required: 'AAA' x 4 (not included)

Hexapod 3D Printed Robot
Hexapod 3D Printed Robot
Our Price: $239.99

There is no cooler 3D printer project you can make! This is a 3D printed fully functional STEM project where students 3D print, design, engineer, and program their robot! We have a free curriculum to support you! Great project for 4th-12th grade!

  • QuickBuild Maker Kit: No 3D printed plastic parts included! It has everything you need and all electrical wiring is already completed and tested, and additional items are included: light sensor, ultrasonic rangefinder sensor, programming cable, extra magnets for accessories like Joust. The pre-wired electrical system cuts the build from about two hours to under one hour and also eliminates wiring errors.
  • QuickBuild Complete Kit: Has everything in the QuickBuild Maker Kit plus all the 3D printed plastic parts for the hexapod robot, gamepad, and accessories for games like Joust, Capture the Flag, Fidget Spinner Challenge, and sensor housings. You can assemble in less than one hour with our QuickBuild system.
  • Control your robot from the included Gamepad, able to execute 60 different motions and in Deluxe models can record and playback gamepad actions.
  • Fully supports the MIT drag-and-drop programming system to create your own custom motions, read sensors on the robot. Deluxe packages even allow new motions to be stored on the gamepad and called up using gamepad buttons of your choice!
  • All 3D models are open source: modify them and add your own hacks and extensions to your heart's content! All software is also open source.
  • QuickBuild kits already have electrical components other than servos wired together. This makes it far easier for younger students to assemble and eliminates almost all wiring errors. All our kits are protected against reverse-battery insertion, making it far more kid-friendly than older versions of the project.

WHAT'S NOT IN THE BOX

  • Batteries. The hexapod requires two 18650 LI-ON batteries and a compatible smart charger. These are available from many sources. There are low-cost bundles of two EBL 3000 mAh batteries plus charger available on Walmart.com and eBay. We recommend the "white top" EBL batteries, not the "yellow top" protected version. The gamepad takes any kind of standard 9v rectangular battery, either rechargeable or disposable work fine.

IMPORTANT NOTES

The plastic parts included in Complete kits are 3D printed. The 3D printing process naturally results in a textured, layered surface that is not smooth. There may be minor imperfections such as threads of plastic or small drips. These will not impact the usability of the product.

NOTE: This product has a flat shipping rate of $19.
