With this amazing set you can build a number of different robots and creations! As soon as you have finished building one, it’s up to you how long you wait until you rebuild it into something completely different! After you build them, you can control all creations via your tablet with the free downloadable app that also includes digital LEGO Building Instructions for all 5 models, plus cool activities and ideas to spark your imagination.
Let’s take a closer look at what you can build!
There’s Vernie – a moving, walking robot that launches darts from its shoulder mounted shooter! You can talk to Vernie and code its behaviour as well as complete fun activities with the included playmat. Vernie responds when you talk with facial expressions that reflect its current mood.
Vernie can move in all directions at different speeds on its large tracks, see objects and colours, sense distance, grip and carry accessories. Vernie also senses and reacts to impacts and knows when you pick it up.
The M.T.R.4 (Multi-Tooled Rover 4) is a robust, versatile vehicle with 4 different tool attachments including a spring-loaded shooter! Build the M.T.R.4 (Multi-Tooled Rover 4) and try out the different tool and customisation attachments to prepare for an array of exciting activities.
The Guitar4000 – Build a musical instrument with pitch bend and sound effects – learn how to play a song and rock out!
Frankie the Cat – an interactive pet that plays, purrs and isn’t afraid to express its feeling! Be sure to feed it the right food – or it may get upset!
The AutoBuilder – Construct, code and operate the AutoBuilder to produce real miniature LEGO® models!
You can really bring your creations to life with the app’s interface and complete an array of exciting activities designed for each model. The easy-to-use intuitive software features an icon-based drag-and-drop coding interface.
This set also includes a playmat for use with specific activities, and a LEGO BOOST wall poster!
