Most robots in primary schools are floor based turtles.  It’s been like this since the invention of Logo in the 1960s.

Although turtles are great, there’s a whole world of creative possibilities that are beyond them. We think students should have access to a creative robot system that is modelled on themselves, that they can program to talk, display emotions, act, react and solve real world problems

So we are developing Ohbot, a kit robot that students can assemble in an hour, connect to a computer and bring to life by scripting programs using easy drag-block software modelled on Scratch. Ohbot will come with a pack containing the kit, straightforward making instructions, software and challenge projects developed by experts. 

 Challenges

The sequence of learning-through-making projects will challenge students to turn Ohbot into a story teller, a street performance poet, teacher, actor or helper. Students will be introduced to key programming concepts including sequences, repetition, selection and variables through applying them to make Ohbot work. This is tailored to address the demands of the Computer science elements within the new curriculum for Computing.

Add-on

Ohbot 2 Illuminating Eyes

 

These Ohbot v2 replacement eyeballs allow Ohbot to express itself using colour. The eyes replace your existing Ohbot eyes and plug directly into pin 13 on the Ohbot control board. Program via the Ohbot software to light in any colour, flash or chase through sequences of colour. It's even possible to have each eye lit with a different colour. Iris colour will be selected randomly unless specifically requested.

Ohbot 2 Camera and Brackets

Camera with two mounts allowing it to be mounted in a fixed position on Ohbot's base or on a headband so that the camera view tilts and turns as Ohbot's head moves. 

Kit includes

  • 1x USB camera and extension cable
  • 1x headband camera mount
  • 1x angled base camera mount
  • fixings

Ohbot 2 Sensor Pack

 Pack includes 

  • light sensor
  • touch sensor (with adhesive pack to attach to Ohbot's nose)
  • 3 axis tilt sensor
  • cables to connect to Ohbot v2 control board
  • instructions on set up 

The sensor values can be used directly within the Ohbot software using dedicated blocks.

  • light level - provides a value between 0 and 10 dependent on light level
  • touch -provides a value of 10 if touched and 0 if not touched
  • movement in three axes - provides a variable for each plane
