New Invention - Meet Edison - the super affordable, programmable robot

Programming:

Edison is programmed using EdWare, an icon-based graphical programming language. Programs are downloaded to Edison using the EdComm cable. The EdComm cable plugs into the 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.

Rotomolding Chocolate Eggs with LEGO and Edison

Getting your class started with the Edison robot is easy with these 10 Robotics Lesson Plans.

You can use these 10 Robotics Lesson Plans either as they are or as a starting point to develop your own customised Robotics Lesson Plans. The Robotics Lesson Plans begin with the easier programming icons, such as basic movement behaviours and end with the class favourites, such as line tracking and sumo wrestling.

Students of all ages really enjoy the programming process, problem solving and collaboration involved with these Robotics Lesson Plans.

You will find that some students will grasp the initial concepts easily and be ready for the next activity. These Robotics Lesson Plans allow for independent learning and transition to the next lesson. As you grow in confidence with Edison and these Robotics Lesson Plans you will develop your own awareness of how best to transition your students from lesson to lesson.

How to fix free running wheel issue?

Here's the fix for that free running wheel. It's caused by the little worm gear coming off the motor inside. Easy to fix. You'll need a little hex screwdriver or allen key.
 
-Take the batteries out
-Take the screws out on top of the unit
-Take the clear plastic cover off, and from there you can access the screws that hold the circuit board in place.
-Undo the circuit board screws and take the circuit board out.
-Pull the rubber cover away from the DC motor and pull out the motor. Once you have done this, you will see the DC motor doesn't have the worm gear on the end of it.
-Find the worm gear and reattach it. You can compare to the other little motor for positioning.
-Turn the DC motor and observe the wheel now turns.
-Reassemble

All in one practical application of coding for Lego kids.

Given the ever changing platform of technology, the Edison is an extremely neat way for kids to apply the practical sense of coding physically. My nine year old has not stopped experimenting with Edison and the add-on pack, the coding part is creative and the joy from seeing it do what its programmed to do is great. I advised him to add this to his Minecraft under water pyramid where the octopus is able to hunt invaders, using gears to circulate the character. Lego is awesome and I'm flabbergasted with the creativity that comes from kids. The Edison can extend this creativity to better heights of imagination. Highly recommend enrolling the...view more

Great Idea, Poor Execution

I really loved the idea of this but the data transfer mechanism (sound) is just buggy and unnecessary in the age of micro-USB or Bluetooth or USB-C or any other reasonable data transfer standard. Fail.

Awesome Edison

Bought this product to use at school with my class, but is an excellent toy for my own children too. Highly recommend, especially at the price PB sells it!
This is an especially good choice for a child who is interested in robotics and lego as the studs on it fit perfectly with all major brick systems using this stud type (yes I tried!). I will probably buy another one and the extension kit in the future as this has turned out to be a winner!

Edison

My class loves using the Edisons and with EdScratch, EdScratch jnr and barcodes they can be used at many levels of the school. The students are totally engaged when using the Edison and have been quick to learn how they can control what it does.

A must buy for all young coders (and older ones who like to play)

This clever little robot can be programmed in a number of ways. Three languages using a computer edblocks, edscratch and edpy. Edscratch is similar to scratch that is taught at code club in schools and transfers code from the screen into the real world. The Edison has built in sensors and can be programmed to do lots of things. You can also program it by driving it over a special bar code (free download). It has Lego holes and studs so can be used to move models built with your favourite toy building brick. There are lots of videos on You Tube. These little robots are brilliant and excellent value. Recommend to all.

Great well priced product

The students in class are loving these- a very robust little robot that helps students get started with the basics of coding and programming for a reasonable price. The kids love the ability to create around it using Lego and to be imaginative in their creations. the add on kit allowed them to construct new robots from the basic machine. Love the guides available onlne to help them (and me) understand how to use these great little robots.

An excellent teaching product

The product is well priced. It has all of the required features built in for for operating a basic robot such as light sensitivity and obstacle detection. It serves as an excellent introduction to programming since it can be programmed using both a block language and Python. In a classroom situation it is robust and not easily damaged. Its online documentation is second to none.
The missing final star is due to two facts: inter-robot communication using infra red is somewhat unreliable and no programmable attachments can be added.
Overall, however, an excellent product for a very reasonable price.

Great fun for a class activity. Using basic scratch program you an instruct you car to move. I could see us having hours of fun with this across all age levels...just wish our small country school had the budget for a set.
