Technology is all the rage this year and one of the things that our boys are really into right now is robotics which just thrills my heart. With technology advancing more every day, I do my best to expose my kids to as many STEM (Science, technology, engineering, mathematics) activities as possible. Silverlit products are on our kids holiday wish lists every year (we love their RC helicopters) and we were so excited to see the Silverlit Blu-Bot show up on our doorstep this week.
The Blu-Bot is an intelligent, interactive, bluetooth robot that can be powered on its own or through bluetooth via the app. As a standalone, you are able to use pre-programmed steps for moonwalk style movement. It includes a built-in I/R sensor for motion detection and has different facial expressions when the robot moves.
If you interact through the app, the voice changer adds to the fun along with the spy function for recording and playing messages. It also features gesture control and the robot moves per screen touch and you see the real time movement from the app.
I found this great tutorial on YouTube showing kind of how it works with your smart phone so you can check it out and see for yourself how it works!
If you have children who love technology, this is a MUST have this holiday season.
One lucky reader is going to win their own Blu-Bot from Silverlit!
