New Robot Virtual Worlds iPad App Available!

with one comment

We are thrilled to announce a brand new, FREE Robot Virtual Worlds app for the iPad! The Robot Virtual Worlds app allows you to start learning how to program both simulated VEX IQ and fantasy robots using ROBOTC Graphical.

Click here to to open the Robot Virtual Worlds App in iTunes!

The current version of the app will allow you to use the Basic Movement commands from ROBOTC Graphical to control the robot (forward, backward, turn right, turn left), along with the robot’s grippers and arms to interact with objects in the environment. We believe this is a great teaching tool to include with the Expedition Atlantis iPad app as well as a teaching tool for ROBOTC Graphical!

Check out our video of the app in action…


 
And as always, if you have questions or feedback, feel free to contact at support@robotc.net or visit our forums! Happy programming!!
