What our customers are saying

“Our son can read because of your kits... He couldn't read and thought there was no point in it, but he discovered he had to learn to read to use the manual. It was hard going for a seven year old, but he's now 10 and in the top band for literacy, and he even tells the story of how Microbric ('robie' as it's called here) made him learn to read” – C. Nicoll 

"Microbric really is a fantastic kit for young boys and girls to learn about model building, mechanical-electrical interfacing and software programming"
- S. Brauen, Scout Leader

About the I-BOT Robot

(No longer available as a complete kit - Superseded by the Microbot)

The I-BOT robot was a revolutionary promotional robot kit released in 2005, by Microbric in conjunction with ‘The Adelaide Advertiser’ newspaper. Each day during the two week promotion tokens were printed in the newspaper. These tokens were used to redeem a sequence of fourteen I-BOT packs. Day by day, pack by pack, the I-BOT could be constructed until it was fully functional by day 14.

I-BOT robot kit

The I-BOT robot has a host of pre-programmed functions that are activated by driving the robot over special barcodes. The I-BOT can also be controlled using a standard TV/DVD remote control.
