Introduction

ROBOTIS PLAY 700 OLLOBOT is a reconfigurable and programmable robotics kit that introduces children to STEAM Concepts.
Building upon the PLAY 600 PETs, the PLAY 700 emphasizes creative design using ROBOTIS’ patented rivet system and adds two elements: programming and smart device connectivity.
The controller included with the PLAY 700, the CM-50 is a motorized gearbox that brings your child’s creation to live. It also includes built-in sensors so that children can learn programming via SCRATCH or ROBOTIS R+TASK.

Please refer to below video for connecting BT-410 to a Smart Device.

Windows PC

In order to learn how to program a robot using Scratch, please install required softwares.

WARNING : BT-410 requires BT-410 Dongle to connect to a PC.

NOTE : BT-410 Dongle can be purchased separately. Please visit ROBOTIS Shop

Software Install

Scratch adopts block programming GUI that is easier than traditional programming style.
It is recommended to use Scratch to program the robot.

Connect Bluetooth

In order to control sensors and motors from Scratch program, CM-50 controller should be connected to Scratch via R+Scratch.

Connect BT-410 Dongle to the USB port on the PC.
After finishing assembly of a robot, turn on the controller’s power.
By taking BT-410 module close to the BT-410 Dongle, they’ll automatically be paired.
Succesful pairing will turn on the solid blue LED for both BT-410 and Dongle modules.

Run Scratch
