SD Card Writer
Log data. You are limited only by the size of your SD card to the data you want to capture!

Micro USB Connection
Charge and program. Simple and efficient - one databot™, one cable.

Bluetooth
Wireless transmission of live data. Visualize real data in real-time on the big screen in the front of the classroom. Play catch with databot™ and watch the numbers!

Rechargeable Battery
250 mAh LiPo battery built in. No batteries to purchase, no extra expenses, no hassle. Just pure databot™ fun!

Temperature Probe
Connect an external temperature probe via 2.5mm stereo jack input. Plug in the included waterproof temperature probe to instantly gain access to live data for chemistry, life science, and environmental studies.

External Analog Sensors
databot™ LOVES data. The more sensors the merrier so we added this simple 2.5 mm stereo jack input port for connecting additional analog sensors.

I2C Sensors
Did we say databot™ LOVES data? I2C enables databot™ to daisy chain hundreds of additional sensors via a 3.5mm stereo jack input.

Robot Connections
Built-in case connections for LEGO® and fischertechnik® elements. Connect databot™ to your favorite robot and start running data collection missions!

Detachable Baseplate
Also included is a plate for adding a Velcro attachment that enables databot™ to hitch a ride on drones, cars, hot air balloons, bikes, skateboards, pogo sticks and so much more!
