The MakeBlock Codey Rocky is a coding robot for STEAM education. Codey provides an entertaining learning experience and introduction to programming for ages 6+. With the combination of easy-to-use robotics hardware together with mBlock 5 block-based programming, you'll be up and coding within minutes.
Codey Rocky features an innovative 2 in 1 design structure:
Codey is the brains of the outfit, having over 10 programmable electronic modules that produce enough data for a host of applications.
Getting around is what Rocky loves best. Not only will Rocky swirl and follow lines, it will also navigate around obstacles, and you will have programmed Codey Rocky to do it.
The robot has a host of electronic modules, including a sound sensor, light sensor and an LED dot matrix display. You'll be able to code Codey Rocky to play music, follow lights, mimic facial expressions and a whole lot more. With some easy coding you'll be able to turn imagination into reality and enhance your skills, ability and confidence while you're doing it.
IR Transmitter/Receiver: communicate with other robots and allows infrared remote control of electrical appliances
Gear Knob: adjusts volume and variables
LED Display: shows various patterns and RGB lighting effects
6-axis Gyroscope: detects tilts, shakes and turn angles, useful in designing somatosensory tricks which require tilts and shakes
RGB LED Indicator: can be programmed freely, making Codey Rocky even more fun and expressive
Voice sensor: detects ambient and motion sound levels
Light sensor: detects the level of ambient light
Buttons: all programmable for customisation
Colour Infrared Sensor: detects colours, avoids obstacles, calculates distance and enables cruising
How do I do all this?
Well, at the heart of Codey Rocky is the mBlock software.
You harness the power and ease of this intuitive graphical programming software which makes programming simple and fun. By dragging and dropping building blocks on a flowchart-like interface you can set every movement that the robot makes. With one click you can even turn your block-based program into Python code so you can continue to learn and advance your programming skills.
With its built-in Wi-Fi, Codey Rocky can quickly connect to the cloud, opening up a new world of IoT functionality. Why not obtain weather data and use Codey Rocky to make forecasts? You can even make Codey Rocky into a wearable device.
Codey Rocky robot, of course, comes with loads of learning materials, helping to give you the professional guidance you need. There are example programs and tutorials that are constantly being updated and cover entry, intermediate and advance level projects.
