Added additional programs for the Robotics: Smart Machines – Tracks & Treads Edition
Ratings and Reviews
Hello, I bought this item for my child, and the building part was great, it was a blast for me and him. (Hence the 2 stars) But then my son wanted to make the beetle move. Well... your app is a great idea yet it is very hard to learn, it makes c++ look like html. If you want people to ever buy from you again, might I suggest adding a guide to help us understanding how this works. Right now the building was fun but the programming made me sick to my stomach.
Product/App Are Both Bad
We built the robot exactly right, following the instructions. We made sure to build it correctly, but the tracks aren’t the right size. We tried to switch the track from the sides, but then we realized that one is bigger than the other. The instructions say “Ax2” and “Bx2” and to connect them, and do it for the other side as well. We did exactly that, and yet one track is still quite a bit bigger than the other one.
Also, the app also isn’t quite user friendly. I would only buy this if you want to be disappointed and to waste your money.
We made sure to do everything correctly, but still, it won’t work. And we measured the tracks, and one of them is always one centimeter bigger. The motors also don’t have any strength, even with completely new batteries. We tried everything to get it to properly work, but it doesn’t work. The tracks are messed up, it could use a little more stability, and the app should be more user friendly. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT UNLESS YOU WANT TO WASTE YOUR MONEY AND BE DISAPPOINTED WITH THE RESULT!
App Doesn’t Work
Build the robot according to instructions and was eager to start programming, but the app doesn’t work. Bluetooth disconnects and the app becomes useless. Pretty cool building experience, but we bought the product for the programming activities in addition to the building exercises. Disappointed that we can’t program.
