Description

The PocketLab HotRod is a fun and creative take on the classic “physics cart”, except it’s not boring and it doesn’t look like a brick on wheels.



The PocketLab HotRod zooms through classic investigations on force and motion, measuring position, velocity, acceleration, rotation, force, magnetism, and more. The brains of the PocketLab HotRod is a PocketLab Voyager, which means its a genius car. It also means you can detach the PocketLab Voyager, and conduct literally hundreds of other science experiments.

THE POCKETLAB DIFFERENCE

POCKETLAB VOYAGER:
The PocketLab Hot Rod includes a detachable, fully functional PocketLab Voyager, an award winning wireless sensor that is capable of hundreds of science experiments. Measure the speed of your PocketLab HotRod, then detach the Voyager, strap it to a rocket and measure its altitude during launch. The possibilities are endless.

HUNDREDS OF EXPERIMENTS:
The detachable PocketLab Voyager can measure, acceleration, rotation, position, velocity, magnetism, barometric pressure, altitude, temperature, humidity, dew point, and heat index. Voyager connects via Bluetooth to the PocketLab app to stream and record data in real-time, and has onboard memory for recording data without a Bluetooth connection.

FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE:
The PocketLab HotRod is designed to be customized. With a 3D printer you can design and print your own accesories or use one of our free designs from our library. (3D printed accessories shown from left to right: Sail cart attachment, elastic bumper, DC motor mount and battery).

NO EXPENSIVE TRACK REQUIRED:
Super low friction bearings and low rolling resistance wheels make for excellent low friction “physics cart” experiments.

A CLASSROOM SET OF HOTRODS FOR FREE:
You can 3D print as many PocketLab HotRods as you want for free. Just head to our library of 3D printer files.

POSITION, VELOCITY, AND ACCELERATION MEASURED IN MULTIPLE WAYS:
Measure position, velocity, and acceleration using PocketLab Voyager’s built-in rangefinder or by attaching PocketLab Voyager to the PocketLab HotRod’s wheel. The built in accelerometer is also a great way to independently measure acceleration, especially during “impact” experiments. More options means more use cases.

RUBBER BAND CARS, MOTORS, AND MORE:
The design of the PocketLab HotRod allows for easy access to the back axle of the car, perfect for powering your HotRod with a rubber band or a DC motor.

SCRATCH CODING:
PocketLab Voyager can connect with Scratch, the visual programing language, which means you can design your own programs that use data from your PocketLab Voyager and PocketLab HotRod.

WHAT'S INCLUDED:
-Complete PocketLab HotRod with two sets of wheels (small and large)
-PocketLab Voyager ($148 value)
-Attachable bumper
