  • Overview

    Create a humanoid robot that's uniquely yours with UBTECH's Jimu Robot Meebot robot kit - and program it with the free Jimu Robot app on your iPhone or iPad. The kit's six robotic servo motors give your robot smooth, life-like movement. And an amazing array of interlocking pieces snap together to build pre-designed animal characters or anything else you can imagine.

    Use the easy-to-follow 3D animated instructions on the Jimu Robot free app to build your MeeBot. Then employ the app’s intuitive programming function to devise an endless sequence of actions for him. Or you can use Swift to write your own code to configure and control MeeBot. When you’re done, you can capture photos or videos of MeeBot in action and share them with the JIMU Robot Community where you can see and “like” other robotic creations from Jimu Robot enthusiasts around the world.

      Great product!

It took just under an hour to make him, which isn’t bad. It’s good fun for kids to see it come to life and you can make it perform crazy dances and things either by coding it or using pre-programmed movements on the app. I would try the newer Tankbot kit as well based on this experience. I’m not sure what problem the previous reviewer had with the battery but I haven’t had any issues.

      Don't buy it

      I bought this as the main present for my daughter for Christmas. What was supposed to be a special gift that we would build together and play with - is still no I bought this as the main present for my daughter for Christmas. What was supposed to be a special gift that we would build together and play with - is still not working two weeks later. The battery doesn't work which I suspect from their website is a common problem. It's not worth the money and has left us very frustrated and disappointed.

      Great product until battery stops working

      My 8 year old son has really enjoyed playing with this, however the battery stopped holding charge - it simply flashes red and green forever. Having spoken with My 8 year old son has really enjoyed playing with this, however the battery stopped holding charge - it simply flashes red and green forever. Having spoken with the company UBTECH I was told that this commonly happens and the battery will need to be replaced. There is no UK supplier of the battery which in the US is $22, but they put me in contact with their China office who offered it for $75!!! PLUS SHIPPING. At that price I could buy a whole new robot but then I wont because the battery wouldn't last on that one either. A rip off!
