Bigtrak! You might remember having one of these in the early 80’s
This retro and cool programmable educational toy is a six-wheeled tank with a front mounted blue photon beam headlamp used for firing
The centre wheels are driven by two motors to allow change of direction
Use the 23-button keypad to enter instructions for Bigtrak; Where do I want Bigtrak to go? In what direction? How many units will it take to reach my goal? When do I want Bigtrak to fire? Do I want Bigtrak to return to me along a different course?
With a 16 command memory, Bigtrak will execute 16 commands in one sequence, e.g. ‘go forward 5 lengths’, ‘pause’, ‘turn 30 degrees right’, ‘fire phaser’ and so on
There is a ‘repeat’ instruction allowing simple loops
Requires 3 x D batteries (not included). Recommended for 8+ years
