The Bit Board Rover from Brown Dog Gadgets combines Bricks and Micro:Bit into an amazing robotics platform. Learn how to create your own bots, code, and design your own projects!
Create a robotics Rover or Tank with the 207 included brick compatible components. Use BDG's online guides and directions or design your own bot! Parts to build both designs are included, as well as parts to build a gripper, lifter, or sweeper attachment! If you don't like our designs add in your own components and make something new!
The Bit Board Rover was designed for both home and classroom use. BDG's online lessons and activities will have you programing your own projects in no time. We provide the instruction, code, and wiring diagrams for easy instruction no matter what your experience level.
Design and play your own games using with the robotic gripper! Play soccer, move objects, complete complex tasks! If the gripper isn't exciting enough, disassemble it to create a lifter or sweeper attachment. Automate tasks or remote control the gripper to annoy those around you.
