3-in-1-robot kit with Bluetooth for fun in the home or scholastic education. A fun project for both beginners as well as advanced builders. By building and programming your own robot you will gain practical experience in robotics, technology, electronics and programming all at the same time.

mBot Ranger is equipped with a robust aluminium chassis and is controlled by a micro-controller based on the open-source Arduino firmware. Building is easy as it requires no wire connections or soldering. With the help of easy assembly instructions you will be guided throughout the building process. It is then up to you and your creativity on how you want to program the robot to function. Since the mBot Ranger can be built into three different models (robot tank, three-wheeled car or self-balance car) you'll have several challenging programming options to choose from. The extra expansion ports also make the robot capable of being expanded with accessories (sold separately) which you can use to personalize and exploit several other clever and entertaining functions.

The robot's movements, behaviour and sound effects are programmed from your computer using the mBlock software which is based on the popular Scratch 2.0 open source code. The simplified block programming environment allows the dragging and dropping of function blocks to allow you to easily decide where and when the robot is to execute a specific command - a logical and fun way to learn to program. Exactly how you want to program your robot is entirely up to you and your ingenuity. You will also find many guides on Makeblock's homepage about how to get started with your robot and block programming (see http://learn.makeblock.com/ranger/ ).

Once you feel ready to try your hand at writing your own code you can use a variety of programming environments such as the Arduino IDE platform. From there, programming your own Arduino based project isn't such a huge step. The mBot Ranger can even be controlled via Bluetooth with the Makeblock app from your smartphone or tablet, with no pre-programming necessary.

The building kit comes complete with assembly instructions, sensors, motors, Bluetooth module, tools and USB cable for programming from your computer. Battery-operated: 6 x AA batteries (sold separately). Size: 20x17.5x12.5 cm (fully-constructed robot tank). Weight: 1.6 kg.
