When you think of robots, what do you think of? We tend to think of big machines that build stuff, and robots we see in movies that are just too cool to be real. Robots are in our life every day, even if we don’t realize it – everything from pool vacuums to toys for our children. Today, I’ve noticed more and more teachers using robotics in their classroom to teach their students and I can understand why. Robots are a great way to capture children’s attention and teach them. The robots that are being used in classrooms may not shoot lasers, but they are quickly gaining popularity and a great tool to use. On another note, robotics can be a fun way to push your children towards STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) subjects. While there are many cool robots currently on the market, there’s one that is coming out that your children may be interested in – it’s called the Boxer Robot.
About the Boxer Robot from Spin Master
The Boxer Robot has some pretty cool tech features, but his personality is something that really stands out from the crowd …his personality is really cool. He has sensors on his sides, which make it so that he can easily follow your hand while in “follow me” mode.
Along with being able to follow your hand, he also comes with a handy remote control that will allow you to take control of him. From there, the user can drive him around, race against their friends. Yes, I just said racing …up to three of these robots will be able to race together, so the robots will be able to interact with one another.
The robots also have different games that you can play – I believe there are a total of 10 games. One of the games involves battling each other, which is neat. There’s also a tank game where they kind of shoot at each other using the trick shots that are on the remote. If one gets hit, it’ll fall over, which is an indicator that it has been hit.
It comes with a game activation feature card – on the card, there are barcodes. Set the card on the table with the bot in front of it, the bot will automatically scan it and activate the game on the card.
The little ones are going to get a kick out of watching him do some really cool tricks, like wheelies. When you pick him up and shake him, he will get very dizzy, which becomes obvious when you set him back down.
If you’re looking to get your children into robots, while having some fun, then the Boxer Robot would be a great choice. Boxer will be launching during the fall of 2018 at the price of $79.99, which is pretty good considering how cool of a robot he is.
