Introduction to STEM Robotics
ClicBot’s unique modular design allows users to build one-of-a-kind robots in minutes simply by arranging pieces in any way that “clicks” with their imagination, making it easy to create speedy race cars, affectionate pets, bionic walkers, adventurous wall climbers and hundreds of other imaginings.
After designing an original ClicBot character, users can program it in a multitude of ways and watch as their creation comes to life. ClicBot allows users to grow into robotics masterminds, in a playful and instructive way, helping to introduce the building blocks of STEM programming, coding and problem solving. As simple or advanced as desired, it serves as an educational tool, opening doors to rewarding, independent play and limitless entertainment.
Two cheerful and interactive robot personalities – Bic and Bac – are ready right out of the box. Bic is an adventurous, two-wheeled, self-balancing robot that loves to roam, explore and even perform tricks. While Bac is an inquisitive scientist who loves to play, learn and dance as well as capable of responding to different types of touch, sight and gestures.
For users looking for “robo-spiration,” ClicBot offers the Playground within its app, featuring more than 50 preconfigured robotic designs, programs and functions that encourage experimentation. Allowing users to bring any vision to life, the Playground includes a rotatable, 3D rendering of designs as well as step-by-step instructions that appear on both the robot’s built-in screen and app. Each ClicBot found in the Playground boasts a unique combination of controller functions that users can easily unlock, from steering wheels that “drive” ClicBot around and so much more.
Enter the Lab
When inspiration strikes, users can create a ClicBot with a totally unique skillset, using the app’s Laboratory feature. After designing and naming a robot, the Laboratory will then display exactly what it will look like as a rotatable, 3D rendering. After completing these steps, users can bring ClicBot to life – through motion programming or graphical programming.
Through the Demo Motion option, users can record, edit and save different action movements to choose how they want ClicBot to move. Meanwhile, the Steering Motion is for vehicle builds that combines both Demo and Rotational Motions in which users can bring their ClicBot to life with the controller feature.
For those interested in coding, more advanced movements and control features can be created using graphical programming through Blockly by Google. Programs are available across skill level with a step-by-step quick-guide tutorial video to code with confidence. Inspired users can share their robot creations with other like-minded builders through Community in the app wherein they can upload creations for others to access and download upgrades and pre-set configurations to expand their own ClicBot universe.
Kits Fit for Your Creativity
ClicBot is available in four kits depending on how deeply users want to explore their potential and put their ingenuity to the test, including:
- Starter Kit ($449):Build up to 10 unique configurations. The kit includes a brain, joints, skeleton, two wheels, a mount, phone holder and USB cable.
- Standard Kit ($599):Build up to 30 unique configurations. With foot pressure sensors and suction cups, users can build a four-legged pet or have it even climb vertically. The kit includes one brain, six joints, three skeletons, two wheels, a mount, phone holder, four foot pressure sensors, two suction cups and USB cable.
- Full Kit ($749):Build up to 50 unique configurations and with infrared sensors, enabling ClicBot to act as a surveillance robot that detects motion and distance. The kit includes one brain, eight joints, five skeletons, four wheels, a mount, phone holder, two infrared sensors, four pressure sensors, two suction cups, a grasper and USB cable.
- Maker Kit ($1,099):Build as many unique configurations as the imagination will allow. The kit includes one brain, 17 joints, nine skeletons, six wheels, mount, two phone holders, two infrared sensors, four foot pressure sensors, two suction cups, a grasper and USB cable.
ClicBot is ever-evolving with regular software upgrades and, with new features continuously added, it feels fresh and new each time inspiration strikes. Push the limits and explore new possibilities with this unique robot that grows alongside the entire family.
