Light-Chasing Robot


What you get

in Light-Chasing Robot

Light up a love of electronics with this light-chasing robot! Wire up the motors, add the switch, and assemble your robot — all while exploring the science behind circuits and sensors. Customize your robot with one of two skins (a turtle or a beetle), then use the included flashlight to make it get a move on. Learn to steer your robot left, right, and head-on... then rewire and reconfigure it so that it runs backwards!




From the desk of the product designer:

Behind the design

Many insects are attracted to light, and this bot is too! Instead of using a standard remote control function, we added a special sensor to create a light-chasing feature for this unique little bot.

This was an excellent way to spend time with my grandson. We both enjoyed everything about the process and were very pleased with the product.

My son built it in an hour, but played for much longer. My only recommendation is not using it on carpet.
