a.3D Capture A

3D Capture A 350x350

3D Capture A is a simple yet powerful 360-degree rotating platform, consisting of a cell phone holder and a rotating structure. Add a cell phone to realize 360-degree panoramic filming or let the robot film while moving around small objects. When connected with an app, it can simulate 3D scanning beautifully.

b. 3D Capture B

3D Capture B350x350

Similar with 3D Capture A, 3D Capture B also can take photos from 360 degrees. Differently, 3D Capture B takes photos by rotating the object while keeping the cellphone stable. With a free third-party software called Arqspin, this 3D Capture B can make animated rotating pictures just like other 3D-effect images. 

c. Detecting Robot

Detecting Robot350x350

Detecting Robot is a tracked robot with line-following sensor and ultrasonic sensor. It can be controlled by app and there are three modes for this robots: manual mode, line-following mode and obstacle-avoiding mode. Also, with great off-road performance, it can cross the sand or rugged road smoothly.

d. Rolling Tank

Rolling Tank1-350x350

Rolling tank is a robot which can move by rolling over. When hitting an obstacle, it can roll over and keep moving on.

e. Self-Balancing Robot

Self-Balancing Robot350x350

Driven by two encoder motors, this self-balancing robot can move back and forth on its own.

f. Robotic Ant

Robotic Ant350x350

Robotic ant is a hexapod robot mainly constructed by connecting rods. By technical use of several link mechanisms and two motor drivers, it simulates the ant’s configuration, so that it can move forward, backward and turn around freely.

g. Catapult Ram

 Catapult Ram350x350
Catapult Ram is an adjustable table tennis catapult. One of the motors of Catapult Ram tensions rubber band with connecting rods, while another changes the catapult direction with gear drive, so that you can launch table tennis or other objects with Catapult Ram.

  1. Hello, I have the ultimate robot kit and built the robotic arm tank. I now want to test all its functions but it doesn’t appear to work out of the box as it is. I can’t find the necessary code to upload and run the tank. Is there such code to load or do I need to write all of it all by myself? I dont mind learning to write the code myself, thats why I bought it. I’d just like to make sure I have a running reference when I need to compare it or help me thru a problem. Also, I registered to access the forum to see if there are answers but it is not sending me the email I need to complete the setup, do you manage issue with that? Please advise and I appreciate all your help. Thank you, Mark.

  2. I’ve the Ultimate Robot Kit 1.0, is there any pack to upgrade to Ultimate 2.0 (pack including manual, megaPi, encoder motors, metal parts, …) ?

    1. Hi Denis,

      The Ultimate Robot kit 1.0 cannot be upgrade to Ultimate 2.0 since the product structure of Ultimate 2.0 has been redefined

  3. I bought ultimate robot kit and try to build robotic arm tank. We have problem to fix the robot. Is there any video tutorial that can help?

    1. Hi Mabel,

      There is only PDF instruction for assembling the robotic arm tank form, there are some other robot form of Ultimate has video tutorial on openlab.
      You can send email to tec-support@makeblock.com if you meet the issue while building the robotic arm tank.

  4. Hi Makeblock,
    I am interested in the product. Looks lovely!

    I could go through the source in detail, that you link to above: but can you clarify to me something to save me time: can one steer the motors etc moment by moment by sending impulses from e.g. a C program on a PC, or a script pushing stuff through a communication line (BlueTooth, I suppose)? I mean detail-control of the motors–not merely using a high-level script. So that I can wholly write own software and not rely on high-level user interfaces or graphics. From PC.

    1. Hi stein,
      We sell the Ultiamte 2.0 robot in the form of kit, it can be programmed by the mDraw software or Arduino software.
      According to your description, you may search on some other advanced usage of the robot, I am afraid that we do not have the ability to help, you may need figure out yourself.
      The ultimate 2.0 use two Optical Encoder Motor-25 9V/185RPM motors and one Optical Encoder Motor-25 9V/86RPM motor. You may check the spec for the motors in following links:
      http://www.makeblock.com/optical-encoder-motor-25-9v-185rpm
      http://www.makeblock.com/optical-encoder-motor-25-9v-86rpm

      1. Thanks, admin
        Since you suggested searching, I did a litle searching (using unbubble.eu). I tak eit that Arduino Mega 2560 is inside the Ultimate 2.0 robot. For the record, I provide here the three possibly most fruitful links for doing C programming with it–including one (unread) book:
        http://www.mantech.co.za/datasheets/products/A000047.pdf
        http://www.nongnu.org/avr-libc/
        https://wspublishing.net/avr-c/
        I consider buying a Makeblock and at some point provide some open source programs at my overview site genifun.com/openrobotics

        1. Hi Stein,

          It looks like you have lots of wonderful projects, thanks for your sharing, good work!

  5. Hi Makeblock
    I have Ultimate 2.0 robot it works good on mblock but when I try to connect it to makeblock app on mobile phone using bluetooth it gives me error and says that firmware error, so how can I solve this problem?
    Thanks

    1. Hi Mohamed,

      Please reset default program for the Ultimate 2.0 with latest version mBlock 3.4.5.
      Will send you an email for detailed steps.

  6. Hello! My students have had a great time building their robots and beginning to code using mBlock. But after apparently uploading the code successfully, we cannot get them to move. This is proving to be highly frustrating. For example, we’ve checked the wiring and have run simple code (just turning on one motor). We connect through USB and upload via Arduino. All checks out. But then, the robot just sits. I’ve tried every combination I can think of for fixing this.

    The instructions for putting the robots together is pretty well-developed. The documentation for actually coding and troubleshooting is sorely lacking. For that reason, I’m not sure I can recommend this system for classroom situations.

    I will continue to poke around online and try to figure out why this isn’t working. But please: start writing decent documentation for this product. If this exists online somewhere, I’d be grateful if someone could point it out to me.

    1. Hi Beth,

      Does the Ultimate robot work when reset default program for it.
      I will send a instruction to your email address to reset its default program.

      If it still doesn’t move even with default program, please kindly change the batteries have a try. According to our test and research, it is suggested to use rechargeable Li-ion battery or rechargeable nickel-metal hydride, nickel-cadmium which can be bought from amazon or local shop. Or Alkaline battery with good quality like Energizer, DURACELL.

  7. I have the Ultimate Robot 2.0 kit. I have downloaded the instructions to build the robots but the file is corrupted and does not expand correctly. is there an uncompressed file.

  8. I purchased six ultimate 2.0 kits for the classroom. Build instructions are clear but there’s no information on how to use mblock to program the robots. Im stuck. Ive used the orion control boards but the commands for the mega pi board are very different. Help! My kids robots will not move!!

    1. Hi, Moses,
      Since you have experience program Orion, it shouldn’t be a challenge for you to program MegaPi 2.0. Are you sure to choose the correct board under “Boards” on mBlock environment? Could you e-mail more details to tec-support@makeblock.com please?
      Best,
      Makeblock

  9. I put together a Ultimate 1.0 and am having trouble getting t started is there and instruction set or something to get Bluetooth connected, for mblock and maybe upgrade the firmware etc. It take power but cannot get to work with mblock and makeblock. Just need help getting the robot with the claw build like on the cover of the box moving. Thanks.
    P.S. please email me.

  10. I need to download the book with instructions and it will no download. links opens as garbage

    1. Dear Shawana,
      We are sorry to hear the inconvenience caused. We will send you the building instruction via e-mail, please kindly check it : )
      Best,
      Makeblock
