Write your own code
Codey Rocky combines hardware with software, allowing children to learn about programming while they play and create. Using mBlock, a software which supports both blocked-based and Pyhton programming, Codey Rocky takes children by their hands and leads them into the world of avant garde technology with its in-built AI and IoT functionalities, giving them a competitive edge in the AI era.
- 10+ advanced electronic modules
- Expressive LED display
- Supports the new mBlock 5
- Switch to Python with one click
- Get to know AI and IoT Compatible with Makeblock Neuron
- Wireless upload
- 2 in 1 - An Innovative Design in Structure
Integrated with over 10 programmable electronic modules, Codey Rocky has many more features than it meets the eye.
Not only will Codey Rocky swirl and follow lines, it will also go around obstacles, making creation so much more fun.
Software Learning + Hardware Creation – the Fun Way to Learn about Programming
Harnessing the power of mBlock software, Codey Rocky allows children to create dot matrix animations, design games and realise AI and IoT applications. By programming each and every move made by the robot, not only will children be able to understand each command intuitively, they will also find it a very rewarding experience through hardware creation.
Over 10 electronic modules to support your children in turning their imagination into reality
Equipped with over 10 electronic modules, including a sound sensor, a light sensor and an LED dot matrix display, Codey Rocky is a treasure trove of fun that plays music, follows light, mimics facial expressions and many more with easy coding, empowering children with the skills to turn their imagination into reality and experience the delight out of their achievement.
Programming as simple as playing blocks
Hot on the heels of Scratch3.0①, mBlock features many powerful functions and promises truckload of experience; programming is as simple as assembling building blocks – anyone who reads can learn to programme. We also structure the learning process in a series of games of different levels, making programming full of fun while children progress through these games.
① Scratch: a programming language developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for children, is currently the most widely used visual programming language in the world.
Switch to Python with one click for advanced programming learning
Python is a programming language widely used at the forefront of technological advances such as AI and data analysis. Using mBlock software, children write programs directly in Python, and can turn their written block-based programming program into Python code so as to continue learning an advanced programming language.
Home creation made simple even for a child with IoT technology
With built-in Wi-Fi, Codey Rocky quickly connects to the Cloud, realizing its IoT① functionality. Through coding, Codey Rocky allows children to obtain data on the weather and make forecasts; and in conjunction with IFTTT②, they can even automate smart tasks such as sending SMS messages. Children can also transform Codey Rocky into a wearable device, allowing them to make further strides in science projects and realising even more IoT applications.
① IoT stands for the Internet of Things, an interconnection via the Internet of all devices, so as to enable the digitisation and management of all kinds of smart devices and facilities.
② IFTTT, short for “If This Then That”, is a web-based service which connects different websites or applications so as to complete certain tasks. For example, when IFTTT is deployed, an operation you perform on website A will lead to another operation automatically performed on website B.
AI ready with cutting-edge technologies – your key to unlock the age of AI ahead of others
mBlock software supports AI① functionalities including image and voice recognition as well as deep learning. In conjunction with Codey Rocky, mBlock allows children to come into grips with cutting-edge technologies for the very first time. Through games and application, they will be able to learn about the logical thinking and principles behind AI as well as how to interact with machines, which are all essential as they prepare for the arrival of the age of AI.
① AI: short for artificial intelligence, refers to a new science of technology which is applied to all walks of life and is considered to be an important technological development which affects the future of the world.
Packed with comprehensive learning materials, giving children the professional guidance they need
Codey Rocky comes with learning materials, example programs and tutorials, supporting children in their learning of programming each and every step of the way: running on the mBlock software, which is compatible with Scratch projects, Codey Rocky benefits from the wealth of reference materials and example programs available from Scratch; its tutorials on creating projects are constantly updated, covering entry, intermediate to advanced levels, while inspiring children with imagination and creativity; and free PBL② programming lessons based on the CSTA① course design standards of United States are available to Makeblock users, giving children professional and systematic guidance on programming.
① CSTA, short for the Computer Science Teachers Association, is dedicated to empowering teachers around the world to further the education of computer science and promoting the development of computer science education.
② PBL, short for Problem-Based Learning, is a problem-oriented teaching approach, which aims at encouraging students to learn to solve problems in the real world through pro-active learning and logical thinking.
