The Fable robot was designed from the ground up to meet the needs of educators – providing them with a fun and easy way to teach 21st-century skills and STEM subjects and to bring coding to life.
Fable is a modular construction set that students use to create their own robot in just a few minutes. Students can quickly click the different modules together in infinite ways to build their robot’s body and then program it for sensing and movement.
The Fable Makerspace Set is the perfect kit to explore everything the Fable robot system has to offer. Great for classrooms, after-school classes, libraries, makerspaces, and more. The Makerspace Set consists of three Fable Joint Modules and three Fable Spin Modules. It also comes packed with a full range of accessories.
Depending on their experience level, students can program Fable using Blockly, a visual programming language, or Python®, a text-based language. The included USB hub enables wireless programming from a PC, Mac, iOS, and Chromebook.
Also available is the Fable Face app, which is found on both the Mac App Store and Google Play. Fable Face enables students to build robots that are interactive, social individuals and experiment with algorithms to control Fable’s expressions using the phone’s accelerometer.
The Fable Makerspace Set is intended to be shared by six to 18 students, following a ratio of one to three students per set.
