Add-On vs. Cube-Like Modules

Add-on modules can be added to the Main Block or other modules without a connector in between. Just simply place the add-on modules on top of the Main Block and press firmly. You will hear an audio notification every time a new module is successfully attached and recognized by the Main Block.

The Cube-Like Modules need to be connected with the help of Universal or Wired Connectors. The next step will show you how to do it correctly. 

Universal Connectors 

The Universal Connectors have Pogo-Pins on them that provide power and data connection between the blocks. This is why they have to be attached correctly in order to work.

Snap the Connector to one side of the Main Block.

Make sure the Connector is attached parallel to the edges of the module.

Attach another module with this Connector.

You will hear an audio notification every time a new module is successfully attached and recognized by the Main Block.

PLEASE NOTE: The rotating part of the Motor doesn’t have contacts on it that means the power and data won’t flow through it. Make sure you connect the Motor attaching the Connector to the connection face.

Disconnection Tool

Use one of the provided Disconnection Tools to disconnect the Universal Connectors. 

Wired connector

Use the Wired Connector to provide a flexible connection between the modules:  link some separated modules or simply connect around the rotating part as mentioned above. 

Connector Block

Use the Connector Block to connect even more different modules together. 

PLEASE NOTE: The Connector Block doesn’t have the hardware inside and is not recognized as a module by the Main Block, so you won’t hear a specific sound when it’s connected. But all the modules connected to the Connector Block will be recognized by the Main Block.

Lego®  Adapters 

Use the Lego® adapters to upgrade your Robo and make more creative designs. You can also attach the Lego® sticks to the holes in the modules.

Big & Small Wheels

Big and Small wheels can be attached without any Connectors. 

Controlling & Programming the Connected Modules

Once the Modules are connected and recognized by the Main Block, the corresponding Controls, Actions or Code Blocks in the Robo Apps appear.
