Must-Have Tech Toy This Holiday Season: UBTECH’s Jimu Robot

Technology is all the rage right now. So are robots. I know our boys are huge fans of Robots and anytime they arrive at our house Jayden is seriously jumping for joy. So, I wanted to share the must have tech toy this holiday season with all of you, the Jimu Robot!

With Jimu Robot’s new Explorer Kit, kids can have fun building one of five pre-designed characters, or choose to create their own unique robot. Once built, the creator can program their robot to make various actions, and then sequence those actions using block-based coding. Kids can then share their creation with the Jimu Robot Community, where they can see and “like” other robotic creations from Jimu Robot enthusiasts around the world!

Jimu Robot assembly is easy. Character parts, connectors and robotic servo motors snap together without tools in an infinite number of ways. Users can follow 3D animated instructions on the free Jimu Robot app to build pre-designed characters using the pieces in the kit they’ve purchased or invent their own robotic creation.

Once the Jimu Robot is built, it can be easily programmed using the intuitive PRP (Pose, Record, Playback) technology for an endless sequence of actions. Or, users can choose pre-programmed movements from a library of life-like movements.

The Jimu Robot Community offers Jimu Robot inventors a web-based forum for sharing their robotic creations. Users can be inspired by and “like” the robotic inventions of the growing global Jimu Robot Community.
