Product Description

Modular Robotics MOSS Exofabulatronixx 5200 Model Kit

MOSS robot construction kits
MOSS: Robotics inspired by natural systems.
The New MOSS Robot Construction System

MOSS is a robot construction system from Modular Robotics. Each block is a different part of a robot and combining those blocks in different ways yields a multitudinous variety of robots. Think of them as building blocks for the 21st century; designed to help kids invent and build their own robotic creations. The goal of MOSS is to impart intuitive understanding of complex systems and design principles. Within the MOSS system, kids begin to build an understanding of mechanical construction, basic circuitry, kinematic motion, robotics, software integration, and programming.

The Exofabulatronixx 5200

The Exofabulatronixx 5200 includes 52 MOSS blocks and 140 Steel Spheres. The kit is powered by a rechargeable lithium polymer battery and includes a Micro-USB charging cable. The Exofabulatronixx 5200 includes an Extended Battery, 2 Motors, 2 Pivots, 2 Flashlights, 2 Brightness Sensors, 2 Proximity Sensors, Microphone Sensor, a load of connection blocks, and support braces. The most unique block in this kit is the Double Brain Block, which lets you connect to your iOS or Android devices using Bluetooth. When paired with our suite of free mobile apps, you can create your own remote control vehicles. In addition, you can connect to a Mac or PC to reprogram your robot to exhibit new behaviors.

Learn to Build Robots!

MOSS is remarkably intuitive. Color-coded faces indicate how each block works and by snapping blocks together, kids create not only the physical body of the robot, but its behavior, too. There’s no programming required, the robot is “programmed” by how its blocks are put together. Once you understand the basic principles there is no limit to what you can create. Power or data are passed through an elegant single button contact, while ground is passed through the steel spheres.

Magnetic Modules Connect Via Steel Spheres

The steel spheres are not magnets! Over-molded magnets inside the corners of each block’s ABS plastic shell provide connection points for inert steel spheres, bridging the gap between each block. The wonderful part of these spheres is that they create simple motion primitives like ball joints, hinges and rigid construction. These elements combine to create wonderful kinematic creations.

MOSS robot battery
The MOSS Extended Battery Block

Lithium Polymer Battery Technology

The MOSS Extended Battery block lasts for hours on a single charge and it includes a USB cable for easy charging from a computer or wall adapter.

Build a Braitenbird!

The splendid Braitenbird is a MOSS robot that uses two proximity-sensing “eyes” to detect and avoid obstacles. Without any programming necessary, you can build a maze solving robot. Rearrange the blocks to build millions of other robotic creations!

Learn to program with MOSS!

Productive Play

MOSS is more than an educational toy. It is a learning platform that helps kids see design problems in new ways and better understand complex systems. The hands on learning opportunities of MOSS are masked by the immersive fun of building and controlling your own robots!

MOSS robot construction system by Modular Robotics

MOSS is Made in Boulder, CO, USA

We make modular robotic construction systems for kids because we believe that toys shape the way that children think about the world. Modular Robotics is headquartered in Boulder, Colorado, where we design, engineer and manufacture our robots. We are a spin-off from Carnegie Mellon University and are recipients of SBIR grant funding from the National Science Foundation. Modular Robotics designs, manufactures, and distributes innovative toy robot construction systems for children, adults, hobbyists, science centers, museums, and schools.

Build a universe of robotic creations.

Explore the Expanded MOSS Universe!

The Exofabulatronixx 5200 Kit is just the beginning. When you’re ready to expand, you can add more blocks to your collection. Grab a second battery so you can build two robots that interact! MOSS: We Come in Pieces.
