Hello all and thank-you for reading the February newsletter from BotBrain Educational Robots.  Well it’s a super month and not because some of you may have watched Superbowl XLVIII, but because of some super programmers are attempting to code the human brain.  In an article published in the Wall Street Journal on February 3, 2014 Attempting to Code the Human Brain, a company called Vicarious FPC Inc. is designing artificial intelligence software for a computer.  The computers imagination is visualizing cows in various positions after being shown one picture!  There are many articles on this subject and it’s rather amazing what has been done; however, the details of how the brain works are not fully understood.  The human ability to create and develop concepts, things, art, scientific theory, and new mathematical concepts seem limitless.  It is no small wonder that we can build a machine and teach it how to recognize a cow!


Do you want to get started learning how to code?  Our kits come with a CD that includes lesson plans and the BotBrain Program Maker software writing the code in pBASIC ®.  The image below is an example of the BotBrain Program Maker software driving the BotBrain robot in circles and using an IR sensor to check for an object in its path.  The icons are dragged and dropped and then linked together to create an algorithm.  The pBASIC ® code is generated by the software and then uploaded onto the BotBrain robot to perform the task.  You can view the syntax of the pBASIC ® code and learn what each command line does.
Our kits are designed for the classroom or individuals.  Please visit our website at www.botbrain.com  and sign up for our CD.
