5 minutes introductory video on Blue-Bot


1 minute overview including the tactile reader and the App


2 minutes - The Arbours Academy Grand Prix 

Plan your algorithm on the screen of your device (iPad or Android Tablet) and send it remotely for Bluetooth enabled Blue-Bot to perform right in front of you!

  • See the components inside Blue-Bot through a clear shell - children can see its buzz!
  • Use Blue-Bot like a normal Bee-Bot® and program it on the robot itself
  • Capable of performing 45 degree turns and you can also include repetitions in your algorithm
  • Blue-Bot is rechargeable and fits on the standard Bee-Bot® Docking Stations
  • USB cable provided for recharging
  • Compatible with iOS and Android (PC and Mac versions coming soon!)

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.
