Instead of a toy played by kids, mBot is a masterpiece created by kids. mBot is an educational robot which is easy to handle. The original intention of the design is to make it convenient for children to learn programming, Arduino, and robotics. To start with, kids have to assemble the robot by themselves. To make it possible, modular design simplifies the assembly so that it can be finished in 10 minutes. As for the software mBlock, users do not need to code, instead, they only have to drag the pattern to design a program. All these make it easier for kids to use and learn about robots. Particularly, the affordable price helps to realize the goal of “one robot per kid.”
