Magnetic Robotics Kits that Respond to the Surrounding World
MOSS is a robotics construction system that allows you to design robots right out of the box- no wiring, no programming, no coding, and no soldering! A single button contact transfers power and data while the ground passes through the steel spheres. The spheres act as connection points that allow you to create oodles of designs with a multitude of functionality. The magnets are embedded inside the plastic cubes during the injection process so they won’t break out. You’ll design robots that drive, slither, detect and grab objects, and react to the world around them. It’s software wrapped in plastic! For ages 8+.
With the Exofabulatronixx 5200 Advanced Kit, you’ll get a Bluetooth module to connect to your smartphone, tablet or computer to act as a controller for your robot. Apps currently available for MOSS include 2-way remote control, a sketch feature that allows your robot to draw, and a log that allows you to track and graph data that your robot collects!
There are two MOSS kits available: Zombonitron 1600 and Exofabulatronixx 5200
Zombonitron 1600 (item # 3153565) includes two spin modules so you can create simple robot critters that scoot and drive including a Bumbling Explorer and Lazy Sweeper. Control your creation with an infrared distance sensor! Components: 1 x Battery, 2 x Power Spin, 1 x Distance, 1 x 5 Port, 1 x L-Brace, 1 x Flex Long, 2 x Two Span, 1 x Braces, 2 x Wheel and 2 x Tire.
Exofabulatronixx 5200 (item# 3153566) This remarkably intuitive robot construction system lets you build thousands of robot creations that react to the world around them using four different types of sensors. Or, you can pilot your robot using the included Double Brain Block that connects to iOS and Android devices via Bluetooth. Create your own robotic remote control front loader or race car. Rearrange the blocks to build a robot-dinosaur or Mars rover. With the Exofabulatronixx 5200 you can build almost anything you can imagine. The best part is there is no programming required, all you have to do is connect these robotic blocks together to build the robot of your dreams.
The MOSS Exofabulatronixx 5200 includes 52 MOSS blocks and 140 Carbon Steel Spheres. The kit is powered with the Extended MOSS battery and includes a Micro-USB Charging Cable.Complete Kit Contents: Extended Battery x1, Double Brain x 1, Flashlights x2, Motors x2, Pivots x2, Brightness Sensors x2, Proximity Sensors x2, Knob Sensors x2, Mic Sensor x1, Wheel x 4, Axel x2, Short Flexy x2, Long Flexy x2, Corner x8, Hub x6, Arch Brace x4, Short Brace x3, Long Brace x2, Corner Brace x4, Steel Sphere x 140, and Micro-USB Charging Cable x1.
