Yahboom micro:bit smart robot is developed with the most popular Micro:bit board as the core controller. Using Micro:bit dot matrix screen as the body, the entire vehicle adopts elaborate metal motor, high-quality battery and firm bracket to create a compact and beautiful appearance. And it is controlled by Android mobile App remote controller connecting with Micro:bit onboard Bluetooth. We also offer three kinds of comprehensive courses: simple development board experiments, more complex expansion board experiments, and interesting smart robot experiments.It is the best choice for all makers, educators, and amateurs.
- The car is a collection of Micro:bit board, learning kits, and expansion boards, allowing you to learn Micro:bit from simplest to more complex.
- The vehicle model is small and cute. Most of the parts are connected with screws and a few parts are designed with the anti-reverse socket, which makes installation simple and safe.
- Multi-function expansion board with vertical slot structure as chassis of the vehicle, it is equipped with RGB lights, sensors, buzzers, various module interfaces and so on, Besides, it can drive 2 DC motors and 3 servos simultaneously.
- It supports multiple functions: tracking, ultrasonic obstacle avoidance, following, light discoloration, singing, playing music, etc.
- It can be controlled by an Infrared remote controller, and APP remote control by Android / iOS.
- More than 30 kinds of experiment courses are provided.

Well packaged, complete robot project kit. Big plus - no soldering or complex wiring required. From the instruction sheet, I was able to assemble the smart car in about 20 minutes. The URL provided on the box took me to the tutorials and sample files to download to the micro:bit. Using the infrared remote included, I was driving the robot car around the room right away! My tips: use the styrofoam from the box to hold all the small bolts and parts while putting things together. I adjusted the motor speeds in the sample program to make it a little easier to drive. A really fun kit!
I'm a high-school STEM teacher and micro:bit / arduino programmer / lesson plan writer. We are also working directly with MakeBlock on lesson plans for their robot line, and have worked with BBC on their micro:bit applications.
Yahboom is the micro:bit version of the MakeBlock arduino mBot. They are very nearly identical in function, and use Scratch3 or mBlock5 to communicate with their chipsets. Your basic track following, obstacle avoidance, skid steer. Yahboom is lighter and scampers around the floor. Yahboom wheelies, while the mBot crawls around more sedately.
Both Yahboom and mBot are 'easy' to assemble. They both have IKEA-style Getting Started guides, then once the robots are assembled, they have identical Bluetooth hand controllers. Beyond that, you have to learn Scratch3 or mBlock5 if you want students to extend the 'play' function of the robot into sensing and reacting. Yahboom has on-board sensing chips on the micro:bit chipset. mBot offers the sensors as Additional Purchases. Big plus for Yahboom!
Yahboom's board is unprotected, compared to the much heavier MakeBlock mBot, but Yahboom comes with a lithium battery. mBot does not. Our Yahboom twin-motor drive tracked straight. Our mBot dragged on one motor, so it went in circles. Again, big plus for Yahboom!
Yahboom costs just 2/3rds of the mBot, but be careful, one version does NOT come with the micro:bit chipset. That will cost you an additional $18 + S&H, and that's a lot of money. It's also a catastrophic delay if you don't plan for it.
Personally, I prefer Yahboom and micro:bit more than mBot and arduino, because most of my lesson planning is in micro:bit and Scratch3, because we are low-budget. Consider that MakeBlock is the largest toy robot maker and has great customer service, and will be expanding their product line and lesson plan offerings, however Yahboom is not and does not and probably won't. That's a serious consideration if you're buying these in bulk for your students.
I am an elementary technology teacher. The children love code and we have done a lot of computer based coding. Since STEM has become part of the curriculum, I decided to buy this robot as a beginners set.
I put the entire set together beforehand to make sure the children can handle it. It was very easy and I know they will be able to successfully put this together and program it.
After putting it together and programing the code, I was very impressed with the app, which is automatically detected via Bluetooth. It was fun to use; you can change the music and change all of the lights to any color as well as controlling the direction.
I am so excited to show this to the children! They will have fun while learning.
