The Transforming Robot Kit
The main focus of the transforming robot kit is using motors and servos to perform complex compound movement actions.
The transforming robot kit contains a DC motors for propulsion and six powerful servo motors. It also contains all the necessary parts to build creations around them, including the Studuino, battery box, cables and over 100 building blocks- including two special output blocks – a blue LED and a buzzer.
Full instructions and code are available to the robots, although hundreds more are possible depending on how you put them together and write or modify code. 3 different ready-made programs are also available to guide you through differing levels of complexity of programming.
The finished transforming robot walks as a biped and can fold over backwards into a car shape and propel itself using the DC motor mounted on the models back.
The suggested build is just a starting point to familiarise yourself with the components, the fun really starts when you get creative with your own builds.

About Artec Robotist
The Artec Robotist kits are based around a programmable board (Studuino) that connects to motors, servos, sensors and lights – simply build your creations and then program using the familiar Scratch® style block programming interface, used across the country in Primary and Secondary schools - programming software is freely available for PC, Mac and Raspberry Pi.
If you’re looking for a product with brains, you’ve found it. The Artec Robotist kits can be programmed to perform highly complex actions based on sensor inputs, button pushes or by autonomous response.

The Studuino Robotics Platform
The Artec Robotist kits do all their magic with the Studuino board – an Arduino based board which is the brain of all the creations. This powerful microcontroller is easily programmed from the simple to use programming interface and for expert users can even export the code as Arduino code for those who want to dig deeper into your code. Connect up to eight servo motors, two DC motors and eight sensors. The board is fitted into a durable enclosure that also has four push buttons that can be utilised within your creations, it also has the same block/peg structure as the blocks allowing it to be used as an integral piece of the robot.

Have fun while learning
Ideal for children with an interest in construction, computers and programming, the Artec kits provide an intuitive way to create and develop robotic models and machines. Full and in depth instructions guide you through every step of creating the models on the box, but the real beauty of these kits comes with imagination, with a wide variety of inputs and outputs the Artec kits can become almost anything you can imagine – from robotic arms, robot buddies or pets to mobile machines.
Unlock the inner inventor with Robotist – as you become more familiar with the system you’ll develop programs with ease and find the programming interface easy to use and simple to make revisions and upgrades to your programs.
