children and adults in the elementary math
skills of addition, subtraction, multiplication,
and division. "Math Whiz" is a math quiz in a
game format that may be played by up to eight

"Hop to It!" features an
engaging, educational game that allows RB5X to
use its sonar sensor to challenge players to
accurately judge distance in feet and inches.
When playing "Hop to It!" RB5X asks each player,
in turn, to hop to it - to stand at a particular
distance from the robotıs sonar sensor. RB5X
judges how far away the player really is, tells
him or her, and stores the playerıs score in
memory. The closer the player gets to the
distance RB5X requests, the better his or her
score will be. At the end of five rounds of
play, RB5X calculates the playersı scores, and
announces the winner! "Hop to It!" can be played
by up to eight people, or even by a single
player, and is fun for both children and adults.

for all ages and may be played by up to eight
players. We recommend that you donıt start to

As a supplemental classroom activity, "Simon
Robot" helps strengthen listening skills,
demonstrates concepts of sequence, and
rigorously exercises the memorization abilities
of every player.
The object of the game sounds simple enough: to
press RB5Xıs bumpers according to the sequence
in which the robot speaks their corresponding
numbers. If you are successful in pressing the
bumpers in the right order, RB5X adds a new
number to the sequence and asks you to repeat
this new combination of numbers, trying to
stretch the limits of your abilities. In
addition to the basic game described above, we
have added three variations (games 2, 3, and 4).
When you think you have mastered the game, try
the most difficult version, Game 4, and be
prepared for the real master, RB5X, to scramble
your brain as you attempt to press bumpers as
"Drive It" allows the RB5X robot
to be moved from place to place under its own
power, avoiding the necessity for carrying it.
Movement is controlled by pressing the various
bumpers; depending on the bumper touched, the
robot will execute a forward, backward, or
turning movement, stating "Yes, Master" before
performing the function.
6) DAISY, DAISY/INTRUDER ALARM
"Daisy, Daisy/Intruder Alarm"
combines two different RB5X programs in a single
module. The "Daisy, Daisy" program allows RB5X
to both sing the words to the song "Daisy,
Daisy" ("On a Bicycle Built for Two") and play
the tune in two different octaves. The "Intruder
Alarm" program allows RB5X to guard an area, and
to teach the basics of using sonar. In "Intruder
Alarm," RB5X uses its sonar system to detect
intruders moving within 35 feet of the front of
the robot, RB5X sounds an alarm or speaks one of
three different phrases.
The "Voice/Sound Demo"
demonstration software module shows the
versatility of the RB5X voice/sound synthesis
card. The sound card can generate up to three
different sound frequencies at once and has a
separate noise channel. The "Voice/Sound Demo"

dealers who have shopping mall or other high
customer traffic locations with an animated,
awareness- generating display. The robot
portrays a charming android carnival barker and
invites passers-by to ask for RB5X information.
"Record Time" gives new life to a
good, old-fashioned foot race. RB5X gets the
race off to a clean start with the sound of a
starting pistol, and then times the event and
forms an invisible finish line with its sonar.
When a runner returns to the starting line and
crosses the sonar beam, RB5X announces his or
her time and prepares for the next racer. The
robot keeps track of each runner's score,
announces the time at the end of each race, and
broadcasts any new record set.

captivating game for young children. Place your
