Placing the SBrick plus into your LEGO® models enables you to control them remotely using any smart device like phone, tablet, gamepad or even Chromebook and PC as the SBrick Plus is an IoT device. It uses BLE, Bluetooth technology. For instant control, download the free SBrick App.

Indeed, the SBrick Plus will take your robotics skills to the next level as it could be programed any language (Javascript, Scratch, Python, even with the new Apple Swift Playground, etc.). Surely, it can also work with NXT/EV3 sensors using special adapter.

If you want to share your own creations and be inspired by others, login on social platform – social.sbrick.com – where you can meet other SBrick Plus and SBrick users, learn about the things you can do with bricks created by others and tricks from getting the best out of your hardware.

It is important to note that the SBrick Education Library contains building instructions as well as lessons built up of activities you can do together with your child. Therefore, the SBrick Plus is a perfect tool for home learning or for teachers/schools where kids learn programming and robotics.
