TacTile Reader

In stock

The TacTile Reader is a unique, hands-on programming device to remotely control Blue-Bot or Tuff-Bot - the Rugged Robot.

Press the connect button to pair your robot of choice, then place individual tiles sequentially into the embedded trays. Each tile represents a robot command. Press the GO button and watch Blue-Bot or Tuff-Bot move step-by-step through the program while the TacTile Reader lights up each command as the robot performs it.

Want to change the program? Just switch the order of the tiles and press GO again.

A simple way to introduce remote programming without the complications of apps and tablets, the TacTile Reader combines the excitement of Blue-Bot and Tuff-Bot and makes learning to code a direct, hands-on experience.

The TacTile Reader is rechargeable and includes 25 standard Blue-Bot command tiles (1 TacTile Reader Standard Tile Pack). The tray holds up to 10 tiles (commands) , allowing a program up to 10 steps long. Connect up to three TacTile Readers together with the included cable, and students can build programs of up to thirty steps.

Supplemental TacTile Reader Standard Tile Packs and TacTile Reader Extension Tile Packs (including Repeat and 45 degree turn commands) are available and may be purchased separately or at a discount in conjunction with the TacTile Reader.
