If you have always wanted to build your own robot, this is your chance: download RoboMind and you'll be able to create scripts that make this little robot come to life.

The robot is of course a virtual one, that is, there's no physical creature included with the program. All you get in RoboMind is a nicely designed interface with two main areas: the coding window and the preview window. The first one is used to write the script that controls the robot, while the latter is where you can actually see the execution of that script.

The commands included in RoboMind's scripting language include moving in four directions, grabbing objects, reacting to obstacles and leaving a trace of paint to create drawings on the ground.

RoboMind is generally easy to use, plus it includes some ready-made scripts for you to test. The difficult part comes when you want to create your own scripts: though the program is thoroughly documented, it would be great to have a tutorial or video guide to make these first steps easier for the user.

RoboMind is an original app with which you can program a little robot to perform different actions with an easy-to-learn scripting language.

    I wish this was around when I was a kid. Started my 8-year-old in yesterday with very basic movement and paint commands.... More.
