ELECFREAKS Smart Cutebot Pro Programming Robot Car for micro:bit

Product ID: 5898


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 a (not included) 18650 Lithium Ion battery to get moving.

The newly upgraded Cutebot Pro no longer needs a lithium battery expansion pack. It carries a lithium battery box and supports any 18650-sized battery.

The Cutebot Pro is a rear-drive smart car driven by dual high-speed motors, which can zip around your floor. It has 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 18650 Battery. This is just the Cutebot kit by itself!
