Mojobot eyes are LEDs that can show different expressions. The tail light can be commanded and changed to different colors. In front of Mojobot there are infrared sensors that can detect distance and presence of objects, ensuring that Mojobot will always move correctly to each location in the map.
Along with the platform the company is offering curriculum and activities designed to teach kids coding and robotics in a fun way. These include a Mojobot Adventures Stories book and a Mission Cards Game to assist learning. Tutorial videos are also available.
The Mojobot Basic Kit contains all the basic functionalities of Mojobot, including a Mojobot robot and a main console. Also in the set are all of the action coding tags. An extension kit includes additional resources designed to teach how to use loops, if statements, sub-routines, and sensor inputs.
The Mojobot Basic Set is $130, while the complete set is $190. The project will only be funded if it reaches its goal of $80,300 by May 8 2019 12:24 PM EDT.
