What is an OWI Binary Player robot, anyway? Well, it's a robot building kit in which the movement is
controlled by black and white patterns on a disk, which are read by an infrared sensor. Particular
patterns activate either of two wheels to turn left, right, forward, or pause. These on/off commands
illustrate the basic principles of binary coding. To change a movement program, the operator simply
creates a new disk pattern. You can re-program it anytime. Set your course and explore the fascinating
world of the Binary Player Robot kit!
Want a great science fair project? This is the second generation OWI binary navigating robot kit.
This battery-controlled kit can teach the basic principles of robotic sensing and locomotion. And it's
a fun science toy! It features a pre-assembled printed circuit board, hardware, and mechanical drive
system, and only basic hand tools are required for assembly. An infrared sensor and printed circuit board
controls your programmable friend.
Binary Player Robot is more than just fun. Assembling, building, and
following instructions help develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. OWI kits are great for
robotic competitions, science fair projects, robotic workshops, after-school programs, special events,
gifts, science enrichment camps, and classroom activities.
