What is mBot?

mBot is an all-in-one solution to enjoy the hands-on experience of programming, electronics, and robotics. Working with mBlock inspired by Scratch 2.0, connecting with computers or smart devices via Bluetooth or 2.4G (by different version), this easy-to-assemble mBot provides infinite possibilities for you to learn STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).

What's New? – Children Safeguard

Compared to the previous version, mBot V1.1 comes with a casing specially designed for protecting main control board. Meanwhile, the casing is optimised to safeguard children's eyes from the glare of the onboard LED.

    
    

What's New? – Better Auxiliary Wheel

The ball omni-directional wheel of previous version is replaced by a mini nylon caster wheel that performs better when moving to any direction and dramatically reduces the little clack sound caused by a steel ball.

Contracted But Not Simple

Contains 38 assembly parts that can be assembled in 10 minutes and colour-labeled RJ25 ports for convenient wiring, making sure more time can be spent on programming and creativity.

    
    

Graphical Programming

Drag-and-drop graphical programming software mBlock developed based on Scratch 2.0 provides a quick way to learn programming, control the robot, and realise multiple functions from the robot. Know more here.

My son loves his mBot

By: on 26 October 2017
My son is young and he loved this. He got it for his birthday and played with it for hours! It's really durable and a lot easier to put together than I thought. We've had a ton of fun so far with it! Love it! I would have given it 5/5 if batteries were included...

My Preferred robot for Teaching ...

By: on 26 October 2017
My go-to product for making coding relevant to the real world. The mBot is what I use to teach my classes in Sydney, Australia. The "Scratch" programming method makes it easy for me to use it and explain to my students.
