UBTECH Robotics Introduces STEM-Friendly TankBot: The First Jimu Robot That Runs on Threads
Infrared feature allows TankBot to follow commands to pick up or manoeuvre around objects.

UBTECH Robotics, the company that created the cutting-edge Alpha1 Series of humanoid robots, today introduced TankBot, the latest addition to its line of STEM-friendly Jimu Robots for kids and teens. TankBot is the first Jimu Robot to run on tank treads for unprecedented mobility and features an infrared sensor that allows it to follow commands to detect, pick up or maneuver around objects. TankBot is an interactive building block system that combines learning and fun as kids build, program and share their robot creations. The Jimu Robot TankBot Kit retails for SGD 279 and is available in major Singapore retailers such as TANGS, Robinsons The Heeren, Harvey Norman, Courts Stores, Changi Airport Terminal 1,2 & 3, Analogue+, iStudio, Newstead Technologies, nübox, Hachi.techch (Online), Popular Book Stores and authorized dealers.
“TankBot is an exciting new addition to the Jimu Robot family that kids are going to love,” said James Zhou, Founder & CEO, UBTECH. “Its cute and personable face and design will appeal to both boys and girls, and kids will enjoy watching TankBot move seamlessly on its tank treads. Further, users will be amazed by TankBot’s ability to respond to commands as well as its ability to pick up objects. What kids will love most about TankBot, however, is knowing that they themselves are responsible for creating this robot and bringing their new friend to life.”

The Jimu Robot TankBot Kit has all the parts, connectors and servo motors needed to build TankBot or your own invention. The kit includes the Jimu Robot app with step-by-step 3D instructions including zoom and 360 degree views to make building the robot easy. Once built, the app features pre-programmed actions with Blockly coding or the ability to program your own actions to make TankBot do almost anything. An in-app joystick remote also lets you control your TankBot on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Additionally, the app connects users to the global Jimu community to share their creation or programming with Jimu Robot lovers around the world. The JIMU Robot app for both Android and iOS is available free for download.
