iBotz Robot Kits

The iBotz line of educational robot kits are an ideal introduction for children ages 8 and up wanting to investigate the fascinating world of electronics and intelligent machines. Developed with the help of the Open University in the United Kingdom, these kits have a strong focus on teaching not only how to build the robot, but how the robot works. Detailed explanations of the circuitry driving the robot are examined, as well as what role the individual components play in the robot's functionality.

These kits introduce the fundamentals of sensor technology and shows how sensors, electronic circuit boards, and motors can be combined with carefully designed mechanical gears and shafts to produce a robot that moves and reacts to its environment. When you have built and experimented with this robot, you will be ready to move on towards more advanced robots!

- Robots react to environment differently
- Easy to build in about an hour
- Only simple hand tools required
- No soldering skill needed for most kits
- Many different styles of robots
- Theory behind each robot explained


iBotz Soundtracker

iBotz Soundtracker

The Soundtracker will react to sound impulses and objects in its way. It will reverse away from a sound or obstruction, then move forward. Kit contains detailed instructions and educational background information on each component used and why. The kit will teach the fundamentals of sensor technology and show you how it all goes together.

iBotz Antoid

iBotz Antoid

The Antoid walks forward with its six insect like legs and will avoid objects in its way. The Antoid can detect objects with its infrared eye and move accordingly. This great kit teaches how cam-driven locomotion systems work, as well as how infrared proximity sensors can be used for autonomous navigation.

iBotz Hydrazoid

iBotz Hydrazoid

Hydrazoid is a cool alien creature that is fun to build. Hydrazoid moves in a spellbinding way in response to sound To build this educational robot requires only basic hand tools. Kit contains detailed instructions and educational background information on each component used and why. The kit will teach the fundamentals of sensor technology and show you how it all goes together.

iBotz Tribots

iBotz Tribots

TriBotz is three robots in one package. It uses sensors to avoid objects, follow a line and respond to sound. The TriBotz will react to sound impulses and objects in its way. It will reverse away from a sound or obstruction, then move forward. Make a path with a black felt tip marker or black tape and watch how infrared sensors allow the TriBotz to make corrections.
