Compose music
Transform Root into a musical instrument by coding compositions and robot melodies. Looking for more? Use the scan and play abilities to create a color guitar that plays different notes for each color it sees.
Create Games
Build games using your imagination. Race a friend by coding a Root racer. Turn your tablet or phone into a controller and use Root’s color sensors to get boosts or slow down.

  • Reviews

    iRobot acquires Root Robotics to boost STEM offerings "The cool thing about Root is that is has three levels of coding. You can have young kids doing block-based coding. Then you move a slider, and you can code in Square. Then you move the slider again, and you’re coding in Python,” said Angle. “You can actually learn enough Python coding to get a job using this robot. It’s a very rich robot to control and drives you to create sophisticated programs that involve sensors and motion and decision trees. It’s not a lightweight robot.”
