These days’ technology is amazing! Only a few years ago I saw some sophisticated intelligence at the Museum of Science and Industry and today can buy something very similar at a local store.
Check out a robot that might just be smarter than my children and is inexpensive enough to make a great gift.
Let me introduce you to Hurdle the Robot.
Being a smart robot, HURDLE the robot will stop, back up, and change direction when sensing an obstacle. This is a quality my children are yet to master! I don’t know about your family, but in my house kids always run into things or each other.
Hurdle’s other family members a kind of cool too: METALI buzzes and lights up when metal objects are detected, INFRA moves when receiving an IR (Infrared) signal from any home remote control, and SUNNY moves upon receiving artificial and natural light signals.
Get Your Kids Thinking!
To make this toy more exciting, the bug comes in the box and still needs to be assembled. This build-your-own-robot kit introduces young scientists to the exciting world of robotics. With a computer module, motor, chassis, gears, and colorful, unique shaped cover it has everything to put this bug together.
The box comes with a double-sided colorful instruction and activity poster as well as components such Detailed illustrated instructions for building the robot followed by stimulating learning activities provides hours of robotics fun.
While my daughter is 9-year, she did ask her dad for help while assembling the Hurdle.
It’s Assembled! Now What?
Imagine what kind of fun you can have with a robot like Hurdle. My kids assembled an obstacle course and made the robot crawl through some serious hoops.
While constructing your obstacle course you have to keep Hurdle’s sensor in mind – if the obstacle below the sensor, the bug won’t detect it, so make sure that everything in your course is tall!
Which Robot will make a better pet for your family: METALI buzzes and lights up when metal objects are detected, INFRA moves when receiving an IR (Infrared) signal from any home remote control, SUNNY moves upon receiving artificial and natural light signals or HURDLE the robot that will stop, back up, and change direction when sensing an obstacle?
