The new Terrapin Logo incorporates Terrapin's long, rich Logo heritage and includes all familiar Logo features while adding many new ones. Connect Logo to Blue-Bot, Pro-Bot, or InO-Bot. Publish programs on the web. Command hundreds of turtles. It is easy start while the opportunities to explore and learn are limitless.
Danish artist and sculptor Jørgen Minor has long been fascinated with using Logo to create art. As he puts it, his work "demonstrates what happens when an artist meets a computer program."
"Despite Logo's close relation to mathematics and logic it is a really good action painter! It is surprising how close to 'art' Logo can produce with a few very, very simple programs."
"Working with Logo can be very creative in the sense that most professional creativity includes a lot of selection and throwing away. With Logo programs, it is possible to watch many variation of an idea without using hundreds of pencils or buckets of paint."
InO-Bot on the Dry Erase Mat is like the Logo turtle on the screen.
The new InO-Bot robot is the Logo turtle come to life! Bring coding off the screen and out into the real world by creating programs and watching the screen turtle and InO-Bot execute them at the same time.
Terrapin Logo is included with InO-Bot and has been optimized to control it. Insert a pen and use familiar turtle commands to draw shapes and designs with InO-Bot.
InO-Bot pairs well with Terrapin's Dry Erase Matwhich includes pens and cleaning cloth. Drawing simultaneously with InO-Bot and the screen turtle provides strong motivation and a powerful learning experience.
InO-Bot also offers many Inputs and Outputs, providing additional challenges and motivation for young coders, including
10 LED lights, independently programmable
Pen holder with lift/lower capability
Sounds and notes
Light, sound and proximity sensors
Like Terrapin Logo itself, InO-Bot makes it easy for budding roboticists to get started, but continues to provide challenges to even the most experienced students.
