ROBOTICS: SMART MACHINES HOVERBOTS WITH BALANCETECH 620383 AGES 8-14 MODELS: 8 PIECE COUNT: 227 MANUAL PAGES: 60

MSRP: $134.95

Build and program amazing robots that balance on two wheels! Discover the world of robotics — an exciting, interdisciplinary field combining physics, engineering, and computer science. You can build eight motorized robots that use a special selfbalancing technology to move around: a HoverBot that balances on two wheels and then transforms into a four-wheeled rover in one quick action; a robotic waiter that can carry a cup or a soda can, balanced in its basket; a target practice robot; and more! Code programs for your robots using an easy, visual programming app on a tablet or smartphone, which connects to the robots via a wireless Bluetooth connection. The robots use a combination of sensors to balance themselves. A gyroscope sensor is used to detect the angle of tilt of the vehicle. An accelerometer is a sensor that detects the acceleration of the vehicle. Together, these two sensors can tell the microcontroller — the robot’s “brain” — if the vehicle is tilting too far forward or backward and moving too fast forward or backward to remain balanced. Then, sensors attached to the motors, called encoders, can determine the current speed of the wheels. Using the app interface, you can program the robots to move at different speeds and in different directions, and you can program them to light up in various colors and play sounds. A full-color, 60-page step-by-step illustrated manual helps kids assemble the models and provides useful and interesting information about robotics in the real world, including realworld balancing robots like Segways and hoverboards. Digital assembly instructions are also available in a separate app for Android or iOS.

• Build and program eight motorized robots. • Models use a combination of sensors to balance themselves • Two apps available: a visual programming and controller app and an app that guides model assembly with 3D digital instructions (both for iOS and Android) • Fun, customizable introduction to robotics, engineering, coding, and ultrasonic technology

Brainwaves is a new series of games developed by game designers and neuroscientists with which players can challenge their episodic memory — their recent memory of autobiographical events. These compact, card-based games are designed and scientifically proven to exercise the brain to improve memory functions. These innovative memory games place demands on three types of brain functions: fluid intelligence, working memory, and long-term memory. The games were tested by clinical psychologists at Ulm University in Germany, in a study with more than 50 participants over a six-month period.

Dimension is a fast-paced, innovative puzzle game that takes place in three dimensions with 60 colorful spheres. All of the players play at the same time. Everybody tries to position the spheres on their trays to earn as many points as possible before the timer runs out. The task cards indicate how the spheres must be placed to earn points: for example, exactly two orange spheres must be on the tray, and black and blue must touch each other. Complete these tasks while racing against the timer. You get a point for each sphere you use and a bonus token for using all five colors, but you lose two points for each task card you don’t follow correctly. Prove to your opponents that you are the master of multidimensional thinking!

Players take turns placing colored tiles on the game board, earning points for the number of matching colored symbols that radiate outward in straight lines from the placed tile. Each tile is shaped like two hexagons stuck together along one edge, each hexagon with a colored symbol on it. Thus, it’s possible to earn points by extending lines of matching symbols in five directions per hexagon, and ten per tile. The trick is that the winner is not necessarily the player who has the highest scores in a few colors. Rather, the player with the highest score in his or her lowest-scoring color wins! It’s ingenious ... and it’s hugely entertaining, time and time again.

Word Slam Family has all the fast-paced fun wordplay of the original hit game, but in a streamlined, compact format. This version includes 210 story word cards and 100 answer cards, with a total of 600 answer terms in seven categories. It includes easier, family-friendly answer words suitable for families and groups with kids ages 10 and up.

SAFETY The products in this catalog conform to all applicable mandatory US safety standards. More specifically, the products conform to all applicable US safety standards dictated by the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Commercial Practices, Part 16, including the additional provisions established by the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) and the standards dictated by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) F963 Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Toy Safety, when applicable. Because many of the products are toys that originate in Germany, they are also often tested according to the European Safety Standard for Toys, EN-71. Results of safety tests conducted by independent laboratories will be provided upon request. When thinking about the safety of science kits in particular, it is important to remember that while most science kits are children’s products, science kits are not toys for play. None of our kits are intended for children under the age of three years, and all of our science kits require the presence and supervision of a responsible parent or adult. Our instruction manuals always provide important safety advice to children, parents, and adults, as well as first aid advice when applicable. Some common safety precautions apply to all of our science kits: 1. A responsible parent or adult must always supervise the experimentation. 2. All users must read the manuals thoroughly before experimentation and follow all instructions and safety advice prescribed in the manuals. 3. The manual and packaging must always be kept ready for reference. 4. The kits must be kept away from children who are younger than the prescribed age. 5. Caution must be used in handling any objects with sharp points or edges, or that may break to yield sharp points or edges. 6. Users should not put any of the parts in their mouths. 7. Users should always wash their hands after experimenting.
