UnicornBot is compatible with the free iOS and Android app JIMU, which teaches kids how to program the robot to move with the help of detailed instructions. And with a pair of servo motors and one DC motor, UnicornBot can also handle more complex programming, such as making a drinking motion when it senses the color of water, blue, for example. The app also has an augmented reality (AR) function that transports UnicornBot to its own fairy-tale land, so it can feel at home. Come holiday season, JIMU will update the app so little princes and princesses can enjoy more AR fun around storytelling, coding and “creative play.”
JIMU Robot Mythical Series: UnicornBot Kit targets children ages 8 and up. Magical rainbows not included.
