SBrick Plus is a brick that you can place into your LEGO® models so you can control them remotely using a smart device like a phone, tablet, gamepad or even Chromebook or PC. That’s just the tip of the iceberg though; SBrick Plus can use sensors from the WeDo 1.0™ family and can be programmed in several languages, so it’s a perfect way to start your journey into programming and robotics.
Take learning and playing with LEGO® to the next level with SBrick Plus!
Even though the Technic™ family and Education™ products are both LEGO®, there has been no overlap between the two until now. SBrick Plus removes this barrier between the two families and brings those worlds together seamlessly.
SBrick Plus can also work with NXT/EV3 sensors using our adapter which will be available in end of January (2018).
Apple, Google and Microsoft are some of the biggest tech companies in the world. LEGO® is the biggest toy company in the world SBrick Plus connects them. You can now program with Apple and Google and Microsoft and play with LEGO®, all thanks to the SBrick Plus.
SBrick Plus is the first product to work with Apple’s educational language, Swift Playgrounds. Everyone can code with SBrick Plus.
For example, if you have the Fireplane (model 42040) at home then you can build lots of different models using the same parts. We have designed 12 models using this Fireplane, including a robot that can draw, a helicopter and even a band that makes music. These building instructions will be available in the SBrick Education Library.
The SBrick Education Library contains building instructions as well as lessons built up of activities you can do together with your child. The SBrick Education Library contains lessons that teach programming fundamentals in an immersive way. These lessons have been approved by Professors at Cambridge University- this sets us apart from everything else on the market.
The SBrick Education Library will be available soon.
SBrick Plus in the Classroom
SBrick Plus is powerful enough to be used in the classroom by educators teaching programming and robotics. We spoke to hundreds of teachers as we developed SBrick Plus and worked with award-winning educators to produce something ideally suited for education. SBrick Plus is incredibly versatile - our brick is compatible with several of the most important languages - and it also works flawlessly with WeDo™ 1.0 sensors, meaning those kits lying around gathering dust will be useless no more!
This is the part that’s up to you! With the power and versatility of SBrick Plus, the only limit to what you create is your imagination. Think big, think bigger, then think bigger still and create amazing things with SBrick Plus!
