These LEGO compatible educational robots are clean, safe, reusable, expandable and robust, providing students across all grade levels, from ages 5+, with a range of combinations, and possibilities. Each Edison robot features a host of sensors and can be programmed using a growing number of FREE software applications: EdBlocks - a fully graphical robot programming language for the Edison robot that is super easy to use. A drag-and-drop block-based system, EdBlocks is intuitive and fun, even for younger users. Perfect for introducing anyone to programming, EdBlocks is ideal for students aged 8 to 12 years old. EdWare - a hybrid graphic robot programming software for the Edison Robot, combines drag-and-drop graphical icons with increased functionaity from text-based entry. (similar to Scratch and other graphical drag-and-drop programming languages) - making programming fun and easy to learn! EdPy - the easy to learn, high readability and very popular Python programming language. EdPy teaches a real life programming language and makes text-based programming fun and easy! Each programmable Edison robot interacts with the world via infra-red (IR) transmitters and receivers, line tracking, barcode reading, playing sounds and music, plus sound detection. It's also equipped with two motors with variable speeds, left and right red LED lights and three control buttons. One Edison can communicate with another over IR, with the units also able to be programmed by and controlled with TV and DVD remotes. Each bot is powered by a set of AAA batteries.
