Four Ways to Code and Control Blue-Bot.... with or without a screen!

Introducing the new and improved Blue-Bot, which is perfect for teaching control and coding because you can code and control Blue-Bot in four ways;

  • Use Blue-Bots on-board buttons for basic controls, which will enable Blue-Bot to act the same as a Bee-Bot.
  • Use Blue-Bots TacTiles to create more complex screen free programming, then use the Blue-Bot TacTile Reader to upload the algorithms for Blue-Bot to actuate.
  • Use Blue-Bots App to utilize more complex coding opportunities whereby you create your program on screen and send it remotely for Blue-Bot to perform the program.
  • Control Blue-Bot remotely using the App on a Android, iOS, Mac, or Windows device.

    Key Features of the New Blue-Bot

    • Blue-Bot (and Bee-Bot) now have sensors and can detect other Bots.
    • Blue-Bot (and Bee-Bot) now have the capability to record and play back audio. The recording is played back to confirm when commands are entered and when Blue-bot follows the command.
    • Blue-bots has a clear shell, which means children can see inside Blue-Bot and understand which components perform which duties, for example, where is the power stored?
    • Using the app, Blue Bot can now perform 45 degree turns alongside the traditional 90 degree turns which means children can program Blue-Bot to draw a variety of different shapes.
    • You can still use Blue Bot like your normal Bee-Bot, by programming on the robot itself.

    The Blue-Bot App

    The Blue-Bot app enables you to write an algorithm, send it to your Blue-Bot, and then Blue-Bot will follow your instructions. The Blue-Bot App has two modes;

    Explore Mode allows children to explore the wonders of programming through an open ended coding environment.

    Challenge Mode presents puzzles for the children to complete. You can use your existing Bee-Bot mats with Blue-Bot and have an image of the mats on screen so you can replicate your program in real life.

    The Blue-Bot App also makes classroom management as easy as possible too - by allowing you to rename each and every Blue-Bot to give it its own character. The Blue-Bot App includes numerous activities which make writing algorithms both fun and educational, including:

    • Use explore mode to develop algorithms:
    • Step by step programming.
    • Drag and drop programming.
    • Include repeats to add efficiency.
    • Challenge mode will add complexity into the algorithm:
    • Blue-Bot will add random obstacles, adding complexity to the algorithm needed
    • One or even two directional buttons can be removed
    • Children can also record themselves saying a command and can assign it to a button on Blue-Bot. As the algorithm progresses, they will hear themselves giving the instructions.

    Other Useful Features of Blue-bot Include:

    • Rechargeable and fits on the Bee-Bot Docking Stations
    • USB cable provided for recharging
    • Compatible with your existing Bee-Bot mats Interact with other Bee-Bots and Blue-Bots
