Mojobot is a tangible coding robot and board game that makes it really easy for kids and adults to pick up and learn the core principles of coding and robotics.  Mojobot is designed with both fun and educational value in mind. 

Not only is Mojobot stacked with sensors, actions and extensive coding commands, with Mojobot your kids will learn coding through playing fun games.

Here we have created a comprehensive computer coding language and that is screen-free, extendable and allows the use of parameters, numbers, loops, decision making, sensory inputs and subroutines.  

Just place coding tags into the console and press GO.

Have fun together with Mojobot Missions game.

Comprehensive and extendable tangible coding platform.

 Stacked Robot full of personality!

Here's a demo of Mojobot's precise movements. 

 - It’s a “Command Center” with “lights” to guide the coding flow!

- It’s  modular and extendable,meaning the lines of codes are endless!

  • Main Console
  • Main code extension with add-on Console
  • Sub-routine code extension with add-on Console

Main + Sub-Routine Code Extension:: 

Mojobot has 6 main types of coding tags: They enable the use of loops, if statements, wait command and parameters such as numbers and sensor inputs. 

The Basic Set::

  • Movement
  • Numbers
  • Actions

The Extension Set::

  • Control Logic
  • Sensor Inputs
  • Sub-Routine

There are more than billions of coding possibilities you can do with these coding tags, and this is just for one Console!

  •  Special Designed Navigating Map:: Our map is specially designed for Mojobot to navigate with precision. Mojobot will use its sensors to track the four grey corners around each location block to ensure that Mojobot will go to exactly as it is told to!

  •  Expandable Jigsaw Map:: The map is made from paper board jigsaw pieces that can be reconfigured and is easy to carry and transport. 

  •   Themed map::  Take Mojobot on an adventure around Mojotown, exploring new places and discovering new activities.

The Tokens are game objects that Mojobot can interact with. Mojobot can pick up the tokens, carry it around and the put them down where you want to.

As important as the robot and our coding platform is the curriculum and activities that will teach kids coding and robotics in a fun way. This is paramount because learning only happens when children are engaged, and engagement happens when they are interested and having fun.To this end we have created the Mojobot Adventures Stories book and a Mission Cards Game to assist learning. 

The Mojobot Adventures Stories is a cartoon illustrated story of Mojobot's adventures in Mojotown. The story book includes code along instructions so that children can learn everything from the explanations and illustrations.

 Mojobot Missions Game

Our mission is to make coding a fun, accessible and social activity. To this end we have created the Mojobot Missions Game. This can by played alone but it is best for playing together with family and friends. Compete to earn Stars which are the rewards from completing Missions. 

  • Go To Missions
  • Pick Up Token and Deliver Missions
  • Coding Logic Missions
  • Chance Cards

Spice up the game with chance cards and test your luck. Help kids to read and analyze logical rules. 

>> In the Basic set there are 28 Mission Cards and 5 Chance Cards.<<

>> In the Extension set there are 7 Mission Cards and 15 Chance Cards. <<

 These are the rules to the Mojobot Missions Games!

Here we show you a play through of the Mojobot Missions game using one Mojobot Basic set. In this version we are playing with 4 players and using just one Mojobot so the game play is turn based.

In this next video we show you how to play Mojobot Missions game in real-time! You can only do this if you have a robot for each player. In this game rule we'll draw some cards and see who's first to complete the mission. 

Real time game play with multiple robots. 

 These are just some of the ways you can play games with Mojobot. In reality the possibilities of game play and different rules are endless. We challenge and recommend our users to come up with their own game theme and rules, and please submit these to us. It is very possible that in the future, with your permission, we can introduce new maps, cards and game play mechanics that are designed by Mojobot users!

Mojobot Teaching Trials

We have tested Mojobot extensively with hundreds of kids. Since we are already teaching kids coding and robotics on a daily basis this allows us to constantly test and optimize Mojobot. This has helped us to refine the game play and curriculum to make sure that it is fun and fits target age group learning capability.

To see more pictures and our history of our teaching activities you can check them out at,

We've been testing the activities and game concept even before our prototype was ready.

Not only trial runs with our students. We have also been to the world's leading education trade fair, the Bett Show 2019 to get feedback from teachers all around the world. The overwhelming positive response from the teachers reassured us that, yes, Mojobot is perfect for kids!

Tangible coding makes learning about computer programming engaging, accessible and socially interactive!
Tangible coding makes learning about computer programming engaging, accessible and socially interactive!

Tangible coding makes learning about software programming a fun, easy, natural and social process. A group can sit together around the table and figure out solutions as a team. Everyone can easily see the coding tags and add or remove them as they wish.

Tangible coding solutions have been shown to be more effective for teaching as children have reported that tangible coding is more attractive and easier to play than alternative screen based coding. Having physical coding pieces that kids can touch and feel helps to improve engagement and memory. Coding and computational thinking is an essential skill for our present time, and will be more important as we progress into the future.

We are Project Lab, an edtech and robotics start-up based located in Bangkok, Thailand. We have been working in the area of STEM and robotics education since 2015. We work with schools and we have experience teaching children of all ages and background. We have a small team of software and hardware engineers based in Bangkok who are also involved in teaching.  Our team is led by Dr. Pooh Eamcharoenying who holds a Phd in Mechanical Engineering specializing in robotic systems.

From our experience teaching coding and robotics to children from ages 4 to 30+ year old students, we have found that there is a lack of teaching tools for younger children ages 4+. We also think the concept of tangible coding is really cool, especially because it is something which can make coding more engaging and social for people of all ages. For these reasons we really wanted to build a comprehensive tangible coding platform that allows kids of various age groups to code both simple and complex algorithms as if playing a toy or a game.

We have been working in teaching STEM and robotics to kids for a long while. Some of our work include working with the Prime Minister's office to develop and implement robotics curriculum in Thailand. 

Dr. Pooh delivered the robotics curriculum to Mr. Prayut Chan-o-cha, the Prime Minister of Thailand.

Our journey to create Mojobot started around one and a half years ago. The goal was to create a comprehensive tangible coding platform that allows kids to get into the juicy aspects of computer science and robotics in a fun, accessible, and social way. Our team started off quickly as we built our first prototypes with Arduino and other open source development platforms.

100% Guaranteed Delivery!!

Mojobot is already in the production process, and it is being manufactured! We expect to get our production batch out and delivered by July 2019. Here's the timeline of the project so far. 

Here are some of the news and media Mojobot has been featured in around the globe.

Risks and challenges

Our Pledge is to deliver an honest product with high quality.

We are experienced in robotics education and also have a strong manufacturing partner. We do not expect issues that we can't overcome and our prototypes are already at quite an advanced stage. Otherwise, we are working hard to minimize impact on delivery, for our target date in July as promised. In the event of unexpected issues, we will keep you posted on the progress.

If you encounter problems with our product, then we will be offering you our full refunds. We are fully confident in our ability to deliver and we are a ethically responsible company.

Mojobot is not only a development project for us, but it is what we believe in and we give it all to make this happen. We really hope to see you join us and make Mojobot project happen.

Love,

Mojobot Team
