Meet databot™—a tiny brilliant cube packed with high-tech, science-exploration fun! The databot™ fits in the palm of your hand and collects information from 11 included sensors that measure motion, temperature, altitude, velocity, and so much more. The data is streamed instantly to provide engaging experiments in science, coding, and technology in every learning environment imaginable. Comes with everything you need to get started—just add a computer or tablet.

Each databot™ has been preconfigured and preprogrammed to work with the Google® Science Journal app using an Android™ device or a Chromebook® computer. The Google® Science Journal is an easy-to-use digital notebook that students can use to view, record, analyze, and share their databot™ data.

To take control of this amazing device, just upload instructions to the databot™ using Arduino®. Students can learn how to update its software, change the target software from Google® Science Journal, or any other number of hacks they have in mind—so much is possible. The databot™ is basically a tiny computer in the palm of your hand, loaded with sensors, processors, on-board power, memory, and ports for input and output.

The databot™ includes the following sensors: air pressure, altitude, humidity, accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, ultraviolet (UV), light (lux), CO2, VOCs, and microphone.

Additional features include:

  • Speaker for sound output
  • Programmable display LEDs
  • SD card writer
  • Mini USB connection
  • Bluetooth®
  • Rechargeable battery
  • Temperature probe
  • External 2.5-mm stereo jack (to connect additional analog and digital sensors)
  • I2C sensors
  • Robot connections (built-in case connections for LEGO® and fischertechnik® elements; connect the databot™ to your favorite robot, and start running data collection missions)
  • Detachable baseplate (for adding a Velcro® attachment that enables the databot™ to hitch a ride on drones, cars, hot air balloons, bikes, skateboards, pogo sticks, and so much more)
