This fully-assembled and ready-to-rock robot smart car is the nicest we’ve seen and is incredibly easy to use with a micro:bit and MakeCode. It comes all ready to go, no soldering or screwdriver required. Simply plug in your :bit into the top slot and add three AAA batteries to get moving.
The Cutebot is a rear-drive smart car driven by dual high-speed motors so it can zip around your floor. It comes with an ultrasonic distance sensor to avoid colliding with walls, two RGB LED headlights and two underlights, two line-tracking light sensors, an active buzzer to make beeps and tones, and various headers for attaching additional servos and sensors.
