Welcome to the JIMU Robot BuilderBots Kit! This kit includes parts to build two construction-ready robots – GrabberBot or DigBot – or build your very own JIMU Robot creation. The two industrious BuilderBots are busy inspiring the engineers of tomorrow to create the world of tomorrow. With working treads and an infrared sensor, there’s no telling where you’ll go with GrabberBot or DigBot. Engage in hands-on STEM learning by programming JIMU robots using the Blockly coding platform, or by creating entirely new, custom actions with the PRP (Pose, Record, Play) function. However you play, this JIMU Robot kit will strengthen programming skills and provide invaluable learning experiences. Choose to build either GrabberBot or DigBot using the 3D, 360° animated instructions that will guide you through each step of construction. Blockly coding makes programming simple and fun. Drag-and-drop interlocking blocks of customizable sequences to make your JIMU robots move, navigate obstacles, pick-up objects, and more. Control the fluid-like motion of your JIMU robots through the app. The flexible movements are made possible with our proprietary, high-torque robotic servo motors.
