The joint module give the robot its functionality.
Pupils develop a computer program that applies the modules’ functionality to give the robot the desired behaviour. The joint module contain a rechargeable battery and a small computer, and communicate wirelessly with a dongle. The dongle can be linked to a computer via a USB or a tablet via Bluetooth.
There’s no electronics in these modules, but they make the system easy to build with.The modules are available in a number of different shapes that mean you can build very simple or very complex robots.
These modules make it possible to combine the system with other systems. For example, a robot can be fitted with a LEGO® hand, a smartphone running Skype, a 3D-printed robot head, or the laser pointer that comes with the product.
