What can I do with it?

  • DexterOS, the software that comes with the GoPiGo Beginner Starter Kit, has dozens of free, built-in lessons to teach you to program the GoPiGo in Bloxter (our drag-and-drop language just like Scratch). We also have lots of free projects in Python in our online community, Dexter Studio, you can try turning it into a GPS guided robot, a browser streaming robot, drive  it with a PS3 controller, or program it to protect your room from intruders.  Dexter Studio has many more examples as well.

  • Power Supply Wall Adapter (110-240V)


What’s not included?

What else do I need to know?
