Easy to build with included assembly guide

Clear visual instructions and a user-friendly design makes assembling mBot so easy that all you need to build mBot is a small screwdriver. Each electronic module is color-coded according to its matching connector on the mainboard, so that all you have to do to attach them is match like colors.

3 pre-set control modes make mBot smart


mBot has 3 pre-set control modes: Obstacle avoidance mode, Line-follow mode, and Manual control mode. When used, these modes let children turn more complex ideas into reality with mBot.

Block-based programming


Makeblock’s block-based programming software enables beginners to simply drag and drop command blocks to program their mBot without need for coding experience. Children can not only use the preset controls for their robot, but write code for their robot and see it instantly respond to their instructions.

More fun with expansion packs


mBot comes equipped with 4 connection interfaces and 7 electronic modules and, together with add-on packs and their own code, let children turn their robot into a dancing cat, a smart lamp, and other creative projects. mBot is also compatible with LEGO® blocks for even extensibility.

Gamified learning


Use the mBlock app to program and control your mBot. Your robot answers your commands to accomplish game tasks, making learning and playing one and the same.

Continuously updated learning and teaching resources


Makeblock continuously produces new programming-related textbooks and online tutorials, so that regardless if you are a novice or an expert, a student or an educator, you can find the educational resources that you need from us.
