Der neue Bildungsroboter MAKEBLOCK mBot2 lässt sich dank KI sogar über die Mimik steuern und gibt Gefühle wieder

Der mBot2 Programmierroboter löst nach 8 Jahren den weltweit erfolgreichen mBot1 ab und begeistert mit topaktueller Sensorik, neuen Motoren und einem brandneuen KI-Steuerboard im vertrauten Design. Für Kinder, Lehrer und Tüftler, die spielend mehr über Informatik, MINT, IoT, AI und blockbasiertes Coding lernen wollen 

Ubstadt-Weiher, 29.04.2021 – In den vergangenen acht Jahren hat der Bildungsroboter mBot von MAKEBLOCK weltweit Millionen von Kindern, Schülern, Lehrern und angehenden Programmieren nicht nur komplexe MINT (Mathematik, Informatik, Naturwissenschaft, Technik)-Zusammenhänge spielerisch vermittelt, sondern auch nach Abschluss erfolgreicher Missionen ein Lächeln ins Gesicht gezaubert. Und die Erfolgsgeschichte geht mit dem neuen mBot2 weiter: Unter der behutsam modifizierten Hülle, die jetzt aus robustem Aluminium besteht, ist geballte modernste Technologie verpackt, die unzählige neue Programmierungs- und Anwendungsmöglichkeiten ermöglicht. Am auffälligsten sind auf den ersten Blick die Ultraschallsensoren der nächsten Generation, die einem in strahlendem Blau anblicken. Wer kann diesem verführerischen Blick schon widerstehen? Die blauen „Augen“ sind aber nicht nur für die präzise Entfernungsmessung geeignet, sie vermitteln mit Hilfe der steuerbaren Ambient-Beleuchtung auch Emotionen. Der mBot2 sucht geradezu den Blickkontakt zu den kleinen Programmierern, denn durch die KI-Bilderkennung lässt sich z.B. die Geschwindigkeit über den Gesichtsausdruck steuern.

GinoBot, Inspiring Inventors of the Future with STEM Disciplines, Launches on Kickstarter

The all-in-one smart toy incorporates science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines with playtime, in a hands-on way. 

Astoria, New York – (May 3, 2021) Keeping children entertained and engaged in today’s tech-driven world is now easier with GinoBot. The tool that implements a fun, hands-on experiencewith unlimited expansion potential for learning STEM disciplines, computational thinking, and digital literacy is launching on Kickstarter today.


GinoBot seamlessly blends playtime with advanced learning to sharpen a child’s mind for the future. From plug-and-play robot to high-end coding and electronics, the progression of skills with GinoBot is unlimited. Children ages 6+ can build simple or complex models with GinoBot’s scalable, and compatible design.
It features KEIRO software for block-based programming, which is compatible with a PC (Windows, Linux, MAC OS) and smart devices (Google Play, Apple Store). GinoBot has Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, as well as a micro USB connector. It can also connect with 3rd party hardware like Arduino, Microbit and Raspberry Pi, among others.

Science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM toys are the future. GinoBot is a solution for children to learn 21st century skills that lets them playfully learn how to code, design, build, and rebuild models quickly, no matter their age or learning style. 

“Children are our future and we believe they are all gifted with the power to perform astonishing technological feats,” said Costas Sisamos, founder and CEO of Engino. “As STEM learning principles become more prominent in our children’s curriculum, GinoBot is a great learning tool that will keep young minds hungry to explore, design and create enabling them to experience the limitless thrill of scientific discovery.” 

GinoBot is a great way to invest in your child’s imagination and expand their creativity. To pre-order, visit pr.go2.fund/ginobot.

New MAKEBLOCK mBot2 educational robot can even be controlled by facial expressions

The mBot2 programming robot replaces the globally successful mBot1 after 8 years and inspires with cutting-edge sensor technology, new motors and a brand-new AI control board in a familiar design. For kids, teachers and tinkerers who want to learn more about computer science, STEM, IoT, AI and block-based coding while playing.

Ubstadt-Weiher, 29.04.2021 – Over the past eight years, MAKEBLOCK’s educational robot mBot has not only playfully taught millions of children, students, teachers and budding programmers worldwide about complex STEM (mathematics, computer science, natural science, technology) subjects, but also put a smile on their faces after completing successful missions. And the success story continues with the new mBot2: under the carefully modified shell, which is now made of robust aluminum, is packed concentrated state-of-the-art technology that enables countless new programming and application possibilities.

The most striking feature at first glance is the next-generation ultrasonic sensors, which look at you in brilliant blue. Who can resist that seductive look? But the blue “eyes” are not just for precise distance measurement, they also convey emotion with the help of controllable ambient lighting. The mBot2 is virtually looking for eye contact with the little programmers, because the AI image recognition allows, for example, the speed to be controlled via facial expression.

MindCuber-RI uses LEGO Mindstorms Robot Inventor 51515 to solve Rubik’s Cube

MindCuber-RI is a robot that can solve the well-known Rubik’s Cube® puzzle. It is designed by David Gilday and Mike Dobson.


It is built using elements from a single LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Robot Inventor set 51515.

MindCuber-RI is significantly faster than previous MindCuber and PrimeCuber designs because it makes use of the fourth motor available in the Robot Inventor set to implement a faster tilting mechanism. Older MINDSTORMS and SPIKE Prime sets only included three motors.

Building instructions and software are now available on http://mindcuber.com/mindcuberri/mindcuberri.html alongside those for MindCuber for LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT, MindCub3r for LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 and PrimeCuber for LEGO Education SPIKE® Prime.

Rotrics DexArm setup and first drawing

In this video you can see, only slightly accelerated, how quickly the Rotrics DexArm robot arm can be connected, set up and put into operation. For a first test, I let the robot arm draw my RobotsBlog logo.

Beforehand, I installed the latest firmware and software, as well as got to grips with the TouchPanel and tested its function. If you factor out this time, it takes no more than five minutes from unpacking to the first use of the robot arm.

If one forgoes the connection to the computer or the use of one’s own logo for testing purposes, the robot arm can be set up completely via the touch panel and tried out directly. This way, one could start even faster with the Rotrics DexArm and does not even need a computer.
