Hong Kong-based Hiwonder has launched a micro:bit-based Qdee programmable robot with infinite shapes. Available on Kickstarter from US$39, the kit is compatible with Lego and designed to teach children about robotics. With Qdee, the young ones can utilise micro:bit to truly unlock their imagination. They will learn things such as robotic creation, working with different sensors, programming skills, mechanical knowledge, electric circuit, and simple IoT theory.
Each Qdee kit is crafted with high-quality aluminum, eco-friendly ABS material, and cutting-edge sensors. An extension board plug-in is designed for micro:bit to widen its functionality, allowing the user to utilise RGB lights, sound sensors, infrared remote control transmitting and receiving sensors, and buzzers to construct their ideal robot.
Qdee is compatible with a graphical programming environment based on Microsoft MakeCode. Children can make their own code, read sensors using the Qdee APP (iOS and Android) and wirelessly control their robots through Bluetooth. Beside Mobile APP, Mac, and PC, Qdee also can be controlled by a remote controller via Bluetooth.
