Oh my gosh!! Jewelbots sent me two of their pairable friendship tech bracelets. This isnt your average friendship bracelet. Be prepared to entering the 21st-century!!!
Their goal is to inspire the future engineers, lawyers, mothers, doctors, and designers of the world. Little Crazy Life has been asking me daily for these! She and her friend (10 and 11) will be using these and coding them. As far as I can see these are best for teenagers, unless your kid is pretty computer savvy or you are willing to help them with the coding. This would be a GREAT girl scout STEM project for create your own badge.
The instructions to start coding JewelBots is easy! Check out their YouTube tutorial.
Step 1 – Charge your Jewelbot! While charging it will glow red.
Step 2 – To begin connecting with your Jewelbot with your friends’ Jewelbots, you will need to pair them.
Step 3 – Once you have paired your Jewelbots, you and your friends can begin messaging each other! You can use morse code, or a series of your own vibrations. SO NEAT!
Jewelbots allows your kids to use STEM to match your friends, send secret messages, and takes a great friendship and makes it AWESOME! Whats even better is that there is no phone required. Jewelbots has a patent pending bluetooth connection.
STEM can give your Jewelbots super cool abilities by coding them. You can make your bracelet flash rainbows when all your friends are together, program your school colors, or even make a game!
Out of the box kids can connect with up to 8 different friends and give them a friendship color. If a friend is nearby the jewelbot will glow in their color and friends can send secret messages to each other.
Online community – our online community provides a safe environment for kids to share what they have built, learn from each other, and get quick support.
Self motivated learning – Jewelbots bring computer science education to the next level. Learning how to code with jewelbots feels like playing with friends. Kids can test their skills with step by step coding challenges and get instant gratification.
Open source coding – Jewelbots allow you to communicate via secret messages and customize features through programming! Using the Arduino development environment users can build their own functionality for their Jewelbots. Making them as unique as they are!
Each package comes with a Jewelbot, a Charm a USB-cable and a Band. We are giving one of these to a friend and will update the post once we have feedback on how they work together! 🙂
