LEARNING WHILE PLAYING
In essence, that’s the story of TPBot Smart Car. It looks like a toy and it definitely works like one: you or your kid can just have fun with it, namely using it for line tracking or for obstacles avoidance. However, once you insert the micro:bit motherboard, this becomes a micro:bit programmable smart car that offers your kids the chance of learning code and some micro bit robot essentials while playing.
MICRO:BIT & MAKECODE
This is where TPBot’s Smart Car’s magic lies. Created by the BBC, the micro:bit motherboard is a pocket-sized computer that can be programmed to operate multiple functionalities, allowing children to easily learn programming while enjoying the journey as an entertainment activity. On the other hand, MakeCode editor is a Microsoft editor that provides an easy way for children to start programming and to get creative with the micro:bit motherboard. TPBot Smart Car uses both technologies combined to allow your kids to have a blast while becoming programming gurus without even thinking about it!
Children are naturally curious. They’re learning about everything all the time, which is why they ask so many questions and easily absorb impressive amounts of information. After all, they have to—that’s a fundamental step in the development of every adult human being. So challenging and stimulating the thinking ability of children is a vital way to help them become smart, creative, practical and critical thinking individuals. TPBot Smart Car can play a major role in helping your kid grow in a smarter and truly creative way.
By teaching children how to program, deal with obstacles and challenges and find coding solutions for them within the scope of functionalities it offers, TPBot Smart Car exposes your kids to the necessity of critically thinking about what is presented to them and of becoming problem-solvers. As your kids play with TPBot Smart Car, they will be permanently challenged and stimulated to think, code and create. After all, there’s no better way to grow than growing in a way that gets you used to finding advanced solutions to stimulating challenges.
MODULAR AND COMPATIBLE WITH TOY BRICKS
As an advanced didactic toy, TPBot Smart Car is compatible with toy bricks, allowing your kids to build and test different structures. At the same time, this smart car is also expandable through electronic modules that allow your kids to build on the expandable smart functionalities that they are free to explore and add to the car.
STICK TO THE PLAN OR LET IT RUN
You or your children can control TPBot Smart Car’s movements so that it follows your planned route—or you can simply let it run freely, in which case it will act as if it was a pet. Yes, this is your new pet micro bit robot… although this is a smart car that does far more than conventional micro bit robot toys—and you decide through code what it is that it does!
TPBot Smart Car can also be controlled remotely via the 4-direction Joystick:bit with its 4 undefined buttons and its micro:bit motherboard. This works as a gamified remote control of the device that your kids will program to work in certain ways and which they may remotely operate from the Joystick:bit.
JUST LIKE MAGIC
TPBot Smart Car is equipped with a four-way sensor connection at the rear and a four-way servo connection. It also works with Planet X Series Sensors in which not only its chips are connected, but it also knows where it’s going and where it stands—so it won’t just mindlessly bump against obstacles. Use more external sensors (such as gesture recognition, or AI cameras) to achieve all kinds of functions you want！
