Our first ever bluetooth enabled floor robot, which means you can wirelessly control it with your tablet or PC.
Blue-Bot has a clear shell so children can see the components inside. It is also rechargeable so you don’t need to worry about replacing costly batteries.
You can still use Blue-Bot like a normal Bee-Bot and program it using the buttons on the robot. However, Blue-Bot is now capable of connection to tablets, PCs and Macs, allowing you to take the programming much further. Download the free iOS/Android app to connect to tablets, or download the Windows and Mac software below to connect to your desktop. For another fun way to program Blue-Bot, please see our Blue-Bot Tactile reader. Packs of 6 come with a free docking station. Not suitable to be used in sand or water.

Meet Blue-Bot, the new Bee-Bot robot with a Bluetooth connection! Use the buttons on the back to program Blue-Bot just like Bee-Bot. Connect Blue-Bot to your tablet or PC via Bluetooth, using free apps, and program Blue-Bot remotely. Blue-Bot offers all the features of Bee-Bot while also introducing remote control!
Students press the command keys to send Blue-Bot forward and back, left and right and learn counting, sequencing, directionality, problem-solving, and estimation just like with Bee-Bots. Students are anxious to put Blue-Bot through its paces and develop important thinking skills while they are having fun.
ake Blue-Bot to the next level by using the Blue-Bot app to create a program on screen and send it to Blue-Bot via the Bluetooth connection. Then watch as the actual Blue-Bot along with the one on the screen follows the program. If your code didn't do what you wanted, simply change the commands on screen and send the program again. Creating a program on-screen, sending it to Blue-Bot, and revising as desired provides an additional conceptual level of understanding that further develops algorithmic thinking skills.
The Blue-Bot app adds additional capabilities not available on Blue-Bot itself. These include 45 degree turns and repeating command sequences expanding learning opportunities provided by Blue-Bot. There is no charge for the Blue-Bot app which is available for IPads from the Apple Store and Android tablets from the Google Store (search for Blue-Bot) and for Windows and Mac in the Terrapin Downloads section.
Like Bee-Bot, Blue-Bot is sturdily constructed and holds up well to classroom use. Blue-Bot blinks and beeps engagingly to provide feedback as it follows a program. With its clear shell, Blue-Bot is literally transparent so that its components can be seen, helping to demystify technology. A rechargeable battery, with accompanying charger cable, provides years of use.
