A new robot kit has been launched via Kickstarter this week in the form of the Qdee Robot Kit expanding the features of the BBC micro:bit mini PC from just $39. The robotic kit is LEGO and Internet of Things compatible and offers step-by-step tutorials for children from eight years and above. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Qdee Robot Kit.
Qdee Kits are now available to back with early bird pledges available from just $39 and worldwide shipping expected to take place next month during December 2018. The development team behind the robotic kit explain more about its inspiration. “Qdee is a Robot Kit designed to teach kids everything about the robot. With Qdee, Kids can utilize micro:bit to fully realize their ideas and truly unlock their imagination.”
“We designed an extension board plug-in for micro:bit to widen its functionality, allowing the user to utilize RGB lights, sound sensors, infrared remote control transmitting and receiving sensors, and buzzers to construct their ideal robot. With a robot kit of this caliber makeup, a child can bring whatever they envision to life – a tank or a unicorn, a rover or a dinosaur, an assistant or an explorer – through technology and inspiration. It’s DIY fun at it’s most constructive.”
