This is an old software bug we've fixed in Version 2! Looks like your tablet needs an update!
Simply plug the included HDMI cable into the SmartBoard input and use the Smart Board as your projector. You will need to use the tablet to run the lesson and the robots, though we are always working on ways to improve the lessons -- like taking advantage of the additional Smart Board functionality!
Your AR.Drone uses LiPo batteries. LiPo stands for Lithium Polymer – they’re great because of their light weight and huge power storage abilities, but there are some downsides we’re finding out about. These batteries are very fragile, and there are a few specific procedures for charging and using the batteries that you should know before use.
We work closely with our amazing teachers and awesome customers to continuously develop more lessons, add features, and improve existing lessons.
We would like to thank our community for all the feedback and the great ideas that we continue to incorporate into the RobotsLAB BOX -- please, keep the suggestions coming!
A new version of the software is released and ready for download every semester -- please make sure your version is up to date. The update process is very easy, just follow the instructions here.
The following is a partial log of the latest changes:

It's always nice to find robotics fans! If you find yourself in the position of already owning some of the robots included in the BOX, you can control some of the robots you already own using our tablet and lessons, we prefer you don't do that:
1. We want you and your team to focus on teaching, not connecting/disconnecting/hacking etc. Our goal is to make sure the lessons will be ready to run right out of the BOX.
2. We've made some changes to the default firmware (software) that runs 2 of the robots (AR.Drone and Sphero).
3. We partnered with the Mobot's manufacturer and totally modified the hardware, adding customized faceplates, bluetooth modules, a caster (and a moustache!), in order to meet the classroom needs
4. The robotic arm is a unique product we've created from the ground up, to cover all the lessons our teachers recommended.
