Smart Car Cutebot Robot for micro:bit

Product ID: 4575


This fully-assembled and ready-to-rock robot smart car is the nicest we've seen and is incredibly easy to use with a micro:bit and MakeCode. It comes all ready to go, no soldering or screw-driver required. Simply plug in your :bit into the top slot and add three AAA batteries to get moving.

The Cutebot is a rear-drive smart car driven by dual high speed motors so it can zip around your floor. It comes with an ultrasonic distance sensor to avoid colliding with walls, two RGB LED headlights and two underlights, two line-tracking light sensors, an active buzzer to make beeps and tones, and various headers for attaching additional servos and sensors.

Note: Does not include micro:bit or AAA batteries. This is just the Cutebot kit by itself!
