Do you want to control a Bee-Bot from afar? Try a Blue-Bot! Blue-Bot is Bee-Bot with Bluetooth. Not only does Blue-Bot operate just like Bee-Bot, but you can also control it with a Chromebook, PC, tablet, or the special hands-on, keyboard-free TacTile Code Reader.
Code Blue-Bot using its buttons and press GO to send it on its way, just like Bee-Bot. Alternatively, use the Blue-Bot Emulator to enter commands to send to Blue-Bot. Do the same with a tablet and the free Blue-Bot tablet app from the app store.
Most exciting is the TacTile Code Reader, a special device just for Blue-Bot. Students line up tiles on the TacTile Reader, each showing a Blue-Bot command, and then press GO on it to send the program to Blue-Bot, which follows each highlighted command step-by-step. Just rearrange the tiles to change the program.
Remote control also opens new hidden features for Blue-Bot coding such as 45° turns and repeat sequences, giving students additional programming challenges.
