Features of Makeblock mBot Ranger Robot Kit
The Makeblock mBot Ranger is a 3-in-1 STEM educational robot kit with programmable features to help young learners understand the world of coding. Control your mBot Ranger via iPad, tablets or a laptop computer. Kids can choose from three different designs: the robot tank, three-wheeled racing car and/or the self-balance car. Learn more about these robotic forms below
Ranger Robot Tank
Transform the Ranger into an off-road robot tank, designed to handle a wider variety of terrain than most other vehicles or robot car.
Ranger Racing Car
Construct the Ranger Racing Car, a three-wheeled racing car that runs/spins fast.
Range Self-balance Car
Experiment with the Ranger Self-balance Car, a smart self-balance model that remains level when driving straight or standing still and leans at an angle when making turns.
The Ranger kit includes the 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.
mBot Ranger also supports being programming from your iPad and tablets with the easy-to-use app – MakeblockHD. Explore with mBot Ranger using the existing projects, or develop your own.
Makeblock HD provides existing projects, which enable you to interact with Ranger immediately. Push the button to control Ranger wirelessly and start having fun
Free Online Courses
This kit also providees 16 chapters of courses on graphical programming with Ranger, helping kids to enjoy the fun of programming in various step by step scenarios.
Modules in this kit all equipped with RJ25 ports for easy wiring. Simply connect the modules together and build robots quickly and efficiently.
Endless Possibilities with Open Source Compatibility
The Ranger kit is fully compatible with the 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.
