Kids can build battling robots with this motorized STEM construction kit.
The kit comes with one Mock Rocker Bot, a Boxing Bot with more than 380 snap-together pieces.
Once kids build and assemble their own robots, these smart-tech self-stabilizing boxers are ready for a match.
The robots feature a smart-tech self-stabilizing feature that uses a gyroscope and an accelerometer.
After building them, kids can drive and control the bots using the free VEX Pilot mobile app. The app can be used to control the robot’s every action, from deciding when to left punch, right punch, or double jab.
The Bluetooth app send push notifications from the robot to devices, ensuring kids will always have the most up to date robot.
VEX Battling Boxing Robots are compatible with the VEX IQ platform.
MSRP: $89.99 (single) and $149.99 (two-pack)
