Aimed at robotics engineers and hobbyists, the MekaMon is well suited for a wide range of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) students from those still in the early stages of school, up to those studying engineering at university. The robot is a fully programmable four-legged unit that offers lifelike movement with three degrees of freedom per leg.
The ReachEdu app, specially developed for use with the robot, enables students and others to connect to their Apple or Android based device and helps them learn how to code.
Using visual programming suites, such as MekaDraw, MekaMotion and MekaCode, the ReachEdu app provides users with a comprehensive introduction to coding without the need for any prior specialist knowledge and enables them to create their own programs for the robot.
At introductory levels, there are built-in guided-learning missions that take learners on a journey of adventures – with the eventual aim of transitioning the learning experience from simple block-based programming to writing code and enabling them to access a range of input and output commands and take full advantage of MekaMon’s suite of sensors and fluidic movements.
Available in black, white or grey, the MekaMon Berserker v2 robot comes with Bluetooth LE connectivity, 1.5 hours of play for each 60-minute battery charge, and full modularity for easy storage.
