Just over a decade ago, kids might learn robotics - if they got introduced to it at all - by painstakingly programming a robot arm to pick up a cup.
These, however, are great times to be alive. Get a load of the DJI RoboMaster S1 STEM Education Robot, a kit that's sure to kick off a whole new generation of makers.
It's inspired by DJI's annual RobotMasters competition, so you know this is no simple RC toy. And while it is fairly simple to build in the basic configuration, the 46 customizable components give kids plenty of room to tweak and learn.
The OS supports Scratch and Python languages, which can be used to program any number of custom moves into this tiny tank. It can be controlled on a smartphone by way of the RobotMaster app, and the omnidirectional wheels are capable of some fancy floorwork.
Put it into the arena with another S1, and you open up a whole new world of robot combat via the infrared beams, bead launcher, and hit detectors. You can even communicate remotely with the onboard FPV cameras and intercom feature.
Right now, you can take an early Black Friday discount of 15% off the DJI RoboMaster S1 by using the online code BFSAVE15, bringing the price down to $466.65.
Don't wait for Black Friday—you can get these top-sellers at deep discounts today!

In this footage, a supercomputer’s CPU cores — nearly 900 of them — are neatly lined up in the Task Manager. The Doom logo appears, generated by code that targets each core. Then Doom itself plays, each “pixel” generated by thrashing a core with just the right amount of busy work. Max Holt: Finally got […]
The UK government today ordered domestic companies to stop buying equipment from Chinese vendor Huawei and to stop using its kit entirely by 2027. Huawei is suspected to be an arm of the Chinese government, breaking into western markets (and maybe its networks) by selling impossibly cheap equipment. The UK only recently approved more Huawei […]
We get it. You don’t have to go to the office anymore. That’s no excuse for letting your grooming go positively feral. We’re not saying you need to be GQ cover model-ready every Monday through Friday. But at least put in some effort to keep yourself relatively trimmed, clean, and on point. Even if you […]
With everybody cooped up inside right now, it’s no surprise that many houses are starting to get a little bit…well, funky. Yeah…they smell. With everybody running around and sweating and working and cooking and everything else, odors get trapped inside your home. And don’t even get us started on what happens when litter boxes and […]
