UBTECH Robotics Launches JIMU Robot BuilderBots Series: Overdrive Kit

Faster and More Versatile Than Ever, the JIMU Robot BuilderBots Series: Overdrive Kit Expands the Best-Selling BuilderBots Series with New Programmable Motors, Sensors, and more.

UBTECH Robotics announced the launch of the JIMU Robot BuilderBots Series: Overdrive Kit, available now at amazon.com for $119.99. A hands-on introduction to STEM learning, the all-new Overdrive Kit is an interactive robotic building block kit that gives kids the opportunity to use over 400 parts to build, program, and code two new robots – DozerBot and DirtBot – or invent their own robot creation.

“STEM occupations are projected to grow by 8.9 percent by 2024 from the previous decade according to the Department of Commerce,” said John Rhee, Senior Vice President and General Manager, North America, UBTECH. “A crucial part of preparing children for this future is expanding their interest in mastering core STEM skills, coding and robotics, while also providing an avenue for them to be creative. By inspiring kids with more ways to interact with their robotic creations, the Overdrive kit fosters STEM skills in an approachable, fun way that expands a child’s creativity.”

The Overdrive kit includes two smooth-motion robotic servo motors and two speedy DC motors, making these robots two of the fastest JIMU Robots in the market. Each robot also contains an ultrasonic sensor and RGB light, which allows them to detect and avoid obstacles and react to their environments with lights and motions.

The JIMU Robot BuilderBots Series: Overdrive Kit comes with everything you need to build and code your robot:

2 smooth-motion robotic servo motors

2 speedy DC motors

1 Ultrasonic Sensor and RGB Light

Additionally, the Overdrive Kit includes access to the free JIMU app for both iOS and Android that makes building and coding a breeze through step-by-step instructions to control your robot creation. The app offers clear advantages including:
