Description

The Fable system is composed of three types of modules: Function modules, build modules and extension modules

  • Robust design, strong enough for rough treatment at school
  • Quality components with powerful motors and accurate sensors
  • No wires or cables: wireless programming and rechargeable batteries
  • Strong magnetic joints, easily clicked together
  • Fast to get ready and clear up, leaving more time for teaching
  • Unique open-ended system which can be extended with LEGO:registered: and your own 3D-prints
  • Fable is controlled wirelessly via a dongle linked to your PC or Mac via a USB. Soon you may also use your iPad via Bluetooth
Joint module The joint module give the robot its functionality. Pupils develop a computer program that applies the modules’ functionality to give the robot the desired behaviour. The joint module contain a rechargeable battery and a small computer, and communicate wirelessly with a dongle. The dongle can be linked to a computer via a USB or a tablet via Bluetooth. Build module There’s no electronics in these modules, but they make the system easy to build with.The modules are available in a number of different shapes that mean you can build very simple or very complex robots. Extension modules These modules make it possible to combine the system with other systems. For example, a robot can be fitted with a LEGO:registered: hand, a smartphone running Skype, a 3D-printed robot head, or the laser pointer that comes with the product. Examples of Fable robots Combining function, build and extension modules gives pupils untold possibilities to create different types of robots. Some robots are pure imagination and are mostly for fun, while others have been carefully designed by the pupil to solve a real-life problem. We’ve developed more than fifteen different types of module, of which some are already in production, several are on the way, and even more will be developed in the future.

    We ordered the trial Fable kit to see if it would be easy to include it into our curriculum. We had been wanting to find a way to start robotics with our Y7 and Y8ʼs and Fable appealed to us.

    We were thrilled when it arrived and we found it easy to get started. It was really well made and easy to put together. We also loved the blocky editor and found it easy to navigate round. It complimented the other work on blockly we had been doing.

    We set it up and got a few pupils to try it out. They got Fable to monitor movement, then wave and smile. The best thing though was the discussion between the pupils. The problem solving and thinking skills were a joy to witness.

    We loved it so much we ordered a class set and havenʼt looked back.
