New ROK Star technology controls every Rokenbok machine with a single, wireless controller.
Just aim ROK Star at any Rokenbok machine to take control.
No limits! Add as many machines and remote controllers as you want to your Rokenbok World.
Children love new sounds too; horn, back-up warning and siren.
Lifetime Guarantee on ROK Star Controller and Rokenbok building pieces.
Please note: The ROK Star Controller will not control Rokenbok Classic RC (radio controlled) machines.
ROK Star is wireless, multi-player, multi-vehicle remote control. The ROK Star Controller not only lets you control any number of Rokenbok ROK Star machines, it lets you switch on the go. Just point and control. What’s more, everyone can play. Add as many ROK Star remote controllers and Rokenbok machines as you want. Designed to be easy enough for a preschooler and yet appeal to our most advanced Rokenbokers, ROK Star is at the heart of Rokenbok interactive play.
ROK Star is a unique, patent pending technology. To make the system easy and intuitive, we combined broad and narrow beam IR and visible light transmitters, invented new reflective optical filtering, and built a proprietary microprocessor based control system. The result is something the world has never seen before.
Press and hold the Select button, then aim the red light beam at any ROK Star machine. That machine is now in your control! Use the large directional wheel to move the machine around your Rokenbok world. Additional functions, like lifting or dumping, are performed by pressing the A, B, X, or Y function buttons.
Here are some other ROK Star features:
- Toggle a siren on or off.
- Operate a horn and flash lights.
- Change the pitch of the horn.
- Slow the speed of machines for precise maneuvering.
- Put machines in cruise control mode.
- Sound a back-up warning.
Requires 3 AA batteries (not included).
What's In The Box
Rok Star Technology
ROK Star is a completely wireless, light-based, multi-player, multi-vehicle remote control system. This new control system allows an unlimited number of controllers to talk to an unlimited number of Rokenbok machines simultaneously. Key to ROK Star technology are high-speed data bursts transmitted by infrared light. It's this unique new data transmission architecture that allows multiple controllers to be used at the same time.
The ROK Star controller uses a combination of visible and infrared light to select a vehicle and give it a unique address. Once the ROK Star Controller selects a vehicle to control, the controller and vehicle are paired and the vehicle will ignore data transmitted by all other controllers. It's like cupping your hands over your mouth and yelling "Hey you!" to a playmate across a crowded playground.
Another key issue is the interference from fluorescent lights that often raises havoc with infrared based control systems. A unique optical filtering system was designed that rejects overhead interference from florescent lighting while allowing the high-speed data bursts from the ROK Star controllers to pass into vehicle receivers unimpeded.
The result is well designed, premium quality remote control toys that are both fun and highly functional. The new ROK Star design is more intuitive than Rokenbok's retiring RF based system, and most users will have it up and running right away, without the need to even reference instructions. Just point a controller at a vehicle and press the select button, now you are in control! No switches to set, no addresses to remember - just point, click and it works.
Q- What is the range of ROK Star Controller?
A- You can control Rokenbok machines up to 10 -15 feet away without moving. Because ROK Star is completely wireless and you can follow your machine, the range is effectively limitless.
Q- Can I control multiple vehicles simultaneously with a single ROK Star controller?
A- Yes, by depressing and holding the select button, you can log-on simultaneously to as many vehicles as you want.
Q- Is ROK Star compatible with Rokenbok RC controllers?
A- You can use ROK Star and Rokenbok RC controllers side-by-side in the same layout, but you cannot control Rokenbok RC vehicles with a ROK Star controller.
A ROK-solid investment.
Because every Rokenbok construction component and machine is precisely engineered for compatibility, your child will be using preschool ROK Blocks as part of their most complex Rokenbok creations ten years from now. ROK Blocks, Rokenbok construction pieces, and ROK Star Controllers are guaranteed for life—so they’ll be there for an entire childhood.
The experts say: “Wow!”
