Product Description

The new and improved Blue-Bot® is a perfect starting point for teaching control, and you can wirelessly control it with your tablet or PC.
  • Interact with other Bee-Bots and Blue-Bots
  • Record audio to play back to confirm when commands are entered
  • Audio playback when Bee-Bot follows commands
  • Programme up to 200 steps!   That's 160 more steps than version 1!

The new and improved Blue-Bot® is a perfect starting point for teaching control, and you can wirelessly control it with your tablet or PC.

Blue-Bot can now detect another Bee-Bot or Blue-Bot® and say hello. They will play a default sound or the students can record their own. Students can also record audio to play back when each button is pressed, making it more accessible to all students, including those with auditory or visual processing needs.

Blue-Bot has a clear shell so children can see the components inside. It is also rechargeable so you don't need to worry about replacing costly batteries. 6 pack includes a FREE docking station. You can still use Blue-Bot like a normal Bee-Bot and program it using the buttons on the robot. However, Blue-Bot is now capable of connecting to tablets, PCs and Macs, allowing you to take the programming much further. Download the free iOS/Android app to connect to tablets, or download the Windows and Mac software to connect to your desktop. Please note the app does not require any personal information from the user. For another fun way to program Blue-Bot, please see our Blue-Bot Tactile reader.

Download the app to control Blue-Bot, the latest addition to our floor robot family
. The app enables you to write an algorithm, send it and then Blue-Bot will follow your instructions. There are numerous features, which make writing algorithms both fun and educational.

Blue-Bot App is available for free download on the Google Play Store Blue-Bot App is available for free download on the Apple Store



Use explore mode to develop algorithms:
- Step by step programming. Instructions are added to the list and once happy place Blue-Bot back at the start and press go.
- Drag and drop programming. Just drag your instructions into the left hand bar to save
- Include repeats to make things even more fun
- Program 45 degree turns.

Challenge mode will add complexity into the algorithm:
- Blue-Bot will add random obstacles, adding complexity to the algorithm needed
- One or even two directional buttons can be removed
- Random instructions can be generated, you must predict which square Blue-Bot will end up.

Children can also record themselves saying a command and can assign it to a button on Blue-Bot. As the algorithm progresses, they will hear themselves giving the instructions.

Note: This app can be installed in older iPads but will have limited functionality and CANNOT be used to control a Blue-Bot floor robot.
