Edison Special Starter Pack Offer *LIMITED TIME ONLY*

Description

Edison is a robot capable of many different functions, which are accessible by driving him over barcodes. You can download and print these barcodes for free, along with other free downloadable resources including line mats, Edbooks with new barcodes and functions, the latest version of EdWare programming software and lesson plans. Use these barcodes to turn Edison into a line tracker, remote control vehicle, sumo wrestler and more!

Besides the pre-programmed barcode functions, Edison can also be programmed using EdWare software, which uses a flowchart-like drag-and-drop interface to create instructions, loops and logic for Edison to interpret. These programs can be downloaded to Edison using the included EdComm cable, which plugs into your computer's headphone jack and carries a pulsed audio signal to a high-efficiency LED. The LED converts the pulsed audio signal into light that is received by Edison's line tracker phototransistor and loads the program into the processor. EdWare is available for Windows, Max and Linux, plus iOS and Android for mobile systems.

Edison is also Lego compatible, allowing you to combine and build on to Edison units to enhance their functionality. You can build all sorts of robots using Edison using Lego parts and your imagination.
