10 July 2019
Developed by Bristol-based tech-startup, Reach Robotics, the new Berserker v2 robot & app deliver both STEM-based entertainment and an exceptional coding & learning experience for engineering students of all ages.
Industrial & electronics distributor, RS Components has announced availability of the MekaMon Berserker v2 robot for educational markets & users. Developed by Bristol-based tech-startup, Reach Robotics, MekaMon is not only the world’s first gaming robot, but is also ideal for robotics engineers and hobbyists, as well as for a wide range of STEM (science, technology, engineering & mathematics) students, from those still in the early stages of school, up to those studying engineering at university.
Offering outstanding build quality, the MekaMon robot is a fully programmable four-legged unit, offering lifelike movement with three degrees of freedom per leg and exceptional flexibility. MekaMon is designed to entertain, inspire and educate. Education is a key application for MekaMon: specially developed for use with the robot is the ReachEdu app, enabling students to connect to their iOS or Android device to help them learn how to code.
Using visual programming suites, such as MekaDraw, MekaMotion and MekaCode, the ReachEdu app provides users with a comprehensive introduction to coding – without the need for any specialist prior knowledge, enabling them to create their own programs for the robot. At introductory levels, there are built-in guided-learning missions that take learners on a journey of adventures – with the eventual aim of transitioning the learning experience from simple block-based programming to writing code and enabling them to access a range of input and output commands, taking full advantage of MekaMon’s suite of sensors and fluidic movements.
Available in three colours – black, white or grey – the MekaMon Berserker v2 robot offers Bluetooth LE connectivity, 1.5 hours of play for each 60-minute battery charge, and full modularity for easy storage. It is now shipping from RS in the EMEA region.
