They give the robot a 10/10, saying “A great value bot.”
The Cutebot is a fully assembled and ready-to-go robot for your micro:bit. No soldering is required, just add three AAA batteries and your micro:bit, and you’re ready to start coding. The bot features two high-speed, metal geared N20 motors and rubber tires, making for a zippy little Cutebot. It also features an ultrasonic distance sensor, two RGB LED headlights, two LED underlights, an active buzzer, and line tracking abilities.
Another nice feature is the ability to add additional servos or sensors with its available header pins. It’s a very capable and expandable little robot at a great price point. If you already own a micro:bit, and love little bots, this is something you should have on your wish list.
