The S2 robot is suitable for a whole variety of programming skills.
But a great visual display and introduction to younger children if a teacher demonstrates its writing ability.
The S2 robot is suitable for a whole variety of programming skills. The Scribbler robot arrives pre-programmed with eight demo modes, including light-seeking, object detection, object avoidance, line-following, and art. Place a Sharpie marker in the pen port and it will scribble as it drives. Next, use the Graphical User Interface (S2 GUI) tile-based programming tools, or modify the Propeller source code in our BASIC-like Spin language. Through the use of third-party tools you can also program the S2 on a Mac or under Linux, in PropBASIC and C. The S2 is fully compatible with the Georgia Tech IPRE Fluke, too.
Make your own programs for the Scribbler in two formats: build programs from picture-tiles with the Scribbler Program Maker GUI software, or write text-base programs with the BASIC Stamp Editor software. Both software packages and programming guides along with many other resources are included on the Scribbler CD. Check for the latest software and documentation updates on the Scribbler Downloads page linked in our Downloads.
