Learn to code by playing a video game!  The kit features three stages: Gaming, Coding and Making.  First off, construct your controller by inserting the KosmoDuino (fully Arduino-compatible) microcontroller, buttons, and interaction board into the plastic casing provided.  In the Gaming stage, connect the physical and digital worlds!  Use the gamepadd to play throught 15 fun game levels on your tablet.  Plug one of the four sensorbots into the gamepad to activate its special powers.  Each sensorbot features a different interactive feature dealing with motion, temperature, light, or sound, that has a corresponding effect in-game.  For example, Kelvin melts blocks of ice when you warm the temperature sensor with your hand, Decibel clears a path fro you when you bombard the sound sensor with noise, Lumen reveals things hidden in dark spaces when you shine light on the light sensor, and Newton forces its way through obstacles when you shake the motion sensor.

In the Coding section, learn the basics of the Arduino programming language level by level!  Solve the increasingly complex Arduino puzzles in order to advance the game and learn more about the gamepad technology.  Discover which program codes make the LEDs on your gamepad blink and make the sound module wail.  Learn how the gamepad works, and how you can configure it yourself.  There is also a level editor that lets you set your own levels and unlock them for other CodeGamer players in the app.

In the Making section, become a programmer and apply your knowledge to cool projects!  Use the sensors in new applications to bring your own project ideas to life.  Program the light sensor to count how many time somebody opens your drawer, and program your own sensor-controlled musical instrument.  Enter the digital maker's world and unleash your creativity!

The kit contains 47 pieces for 34 experiments that the 64-page full-color instructional manual will guide you through step-by-step.  All you need to get started aside from what's included in the box is a smartphone or tablet, and a computer with internet access.  The CodeGamer system is compatible with all smartphones and tablets using iOS 7 and Android 4.3 and later.  The device must support Bluetooth 4 or higher.

This kit was the recipient of the Spielwarenmesse Toy Award, the Toy Insider Tech 12 Award 2016, and is a Parents' Choice Gold Award Winner, and a 2017 TIA Toy of the Year finalist (Tech Toy category).

Features:

  • Game-based introduction to writing code
  • Use four sensors to interact with the game
  • Program an Arduino-compatible controller
  • Become an amateur programmer and apply your knowledge to 34 cool projects/experiments total!
  • Makes an excellent holiday or birthday gift for the tech-savvy youth or teen
