Woah now! We were given the super fun opportunity to try out Jimu Robot from Best Buy. I had no idea, at the time, what this would entail. Sometimes I can get a little excited at the title of an email and just agree to anything, but I am super happy that I did agree to try out Jimu. The kids and I have never put together a robot and, probably, didn’t think it through before we did. We had fun putting it together and learned a lot about robotics and patience along the way.
Well, we opened the box and we were on our way! I was lost, from the beginning, I’m not going to lie to you. BUT the way the box was laid out, along with the app on my phone, it only took about two minutes and I was right on track! The amazing news is that the app and well organized box with the parts kept us on track until Jimu Buzzbot was complete. I cannot tell you enough, how organized the box was and how easy the app made it to put Jimu Buzzbot together.
As you can see, in the photo above, all of the parts are in color-coded boxes. These boxes make is super easy to locate all of the parts you need to put your robot together. It took us about forty-five minutes, from start to finish, to get our robot up and running. The kids could not believe we did it! There was a HUGE sigh of relief when my phone paired with Buzzbot and he started dancing. There was this “moment of truth” moment with him. We knew we put all of the fasteners and cords in the right place, or did we? Well, we did and we did it right the first time!
