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

The Microbric Infra-red remote control is a programmable universal remote that can be programed to output a range of different types and brands of infra-red codes.

The Microbot robot being controlled by the infra-red remote control


The most widely used code for robotics projects is the Sony code. Follow this sequence of steps to set the remote to the Sony code:
  1. Put two AAA batteries into the remote control unit.
  2. Simultaneously hold down the S button (in the middle of the arrows) and the B button on the remote (a red light will go on in the top left hand corner of the remote.)
  3. Press the number sequence 0 1 3 on the remote buttons.
  4. Press the red power button on the remote.
  5. The remote is now configured to work with your microcontroller.
Note that buttons A, C, D, E, F and G are for setting the remote control into different codes. Avoid pressing these buttons as this will inadvertently set your remote into another code. You can always return to the Sony code by pressing the B button.
