Edbot Play&Code

Edbot Play&Code is based on the Robotis Play 700 STEAM kit. The kit enables you to build 6 different robots with easy-build rivets. Choose from the car, scorpion, puppy, windmill, bear or bird. When you’ve finished with a particular robot, take it to pieces and build the next one! The CM-50 microcontroller (the yellow box) includes built-in sensors, a buzzer, motors and a socket for the included Bluetooth module.

Your Edbot Play&Code kit also includes an Edbot Play&Code Product Key for use with the Edbot Software. The software connects to your Edbot Play&Code using the included Bluetooth module. This allows you to program your Play&Code in Scratch 2.0, Scratch 3.0, Python, Java, JavaScript, Node.js and other languages with multi-user networking support on Windows 10. Support for Mac, Linux (including Raspberry Pi) and Android / Chromebook platforms will follow in due course.

For remote control, you can use the Robotis R+ Play 700 app on your smart phone to control your robot. Refer to the instruction booklet for help downloading and installing it.

You don’t need to purchase a BT-410 dongle for use with the Edbot Software, you simply need a PC with Bluetooth 4.0 or above.

Next you'll need to download and set up the Edbot Software. This software connects your program to your Edbot Play&Code.

When you switch on your robot, make sure you hold the power button down until the unit beeps twice. This ensures the robot is in command mode.
