fischertechnik is a construction toy manufacturer from the Black Forest. The toy robots have to be built first before they can be programmed. This increases anticipation and promotes the use of the child’s motor skills.. The ROBOTICS range includes various educational robots in different levels of complexity.
A distinction is made between two variants: there are educational robots that are already pre-programmed, and robots that the user has to program themselves. In the case of pre-programmed toy robots, various programs can be selected. The small, funny Mini Bots allow an easy introduction to the world of robotics. The five different robots can follow trails or avoid obstacles, for example, depending on which program is selected. The programs are selected using a switch on the so-called ROBOTICS module. The ROBOTICS module serves as the control system, you could say.
Then, there are also fischertechnik robots that are programmed or can be programmed by the user themselves. Here, there are also various levels of complexity as well as diverse software programs and controllers. The educational robot BT Smart Beginner Set, with the latest Bluetooth technology and remote control, is recommended as an introduction to the world of robotics. Here, many diverse models can be programmed and controlled, such as the driveable robot, the remote-controlled robot, industrial robots or everyday models. Various questions from everyday situations are explained in this set: how does a sensor gate work and how does the light come on in the fridge when you open the door? Exciting programming tasks provide the answers to these questions. The robots can be programmed using an easy-to-understand software for beginners. It is also possible to program and control these using a tablet or a smartphone. A further robot construction kit is recommended as an introduction to programming right through to complex programs, since a lot more is possible with this software. These are not just simple robots, but also large industrial models. Both software programs are suitable for programming newbies and comprise various building blocks. Remote control is by app via a smartphone or tablet.
