Itty Bitty Buggy
Play, creativity, and coding combine with the Itty Bitty Buggy – the newest in the next generation of 2018 STEM Education toys from Microduino. The fun, versatile, and affordable coding programmable toy (CPT) is designed for creators from as young as eight to more seasoned makers. The Itty Bitty Buggy allows kids to build and program four different, interesting creatures – the Sloth, the Ladybug, the Dodo bird, and the Alien – using the foundational base buggy.
Packed with a rich, fun-filled feature set, the Itty Bitty Buggy kit includes Bluetooth, remote control, voice-control, line tracing, musical color recognition, and LEGO®-compatible pieces, providing users with endless design possibilities and playful configurations. As coding skills become more advanced, users can program and modify the behaviors of a specific creature using a variety of coding languages, including Scratch, Python, and Arduino.
The Itty Bitty Buggy comes with four modes: Ranger, Cruiser, Voice Control, and Musician. Different modes can be applied to the individual creatures via the Itty Bitty Buggy free App for iOS and Android devices.
Later this year Microduino will offer Itty Bitty Buggy expansion kits featuring cool artificial intelligence capabilities so users can tackle more advanced projects.
