Living Lego Sets Create Easy To Build Robots For Kids [Video]
TinkerBots is a robotic building set with a central cube and kinetic modules that can be added for infinite combinations.
TinkerBots is a building set with easy-to-add robotics that enable children to create an endless number of toy robots by simply snapping them together. It aims to actively engage children in technology by immersing them in the world of robotics.
Just like “living Legos”, the set features a central cube (the patented ‘Power Brain’), kinetic modules, passive pieces and bricks. There is no wiring or programming required, and the whole family can engage in play together and enjoy a shared learning experience.
With its Arduino-compatible microcontroller, TinkerBots is also a great tool for schools and makers. There are a number of sets available as perks on Indiegogo, ranging in price from $159 to $499. You can check out TinkerBots in action and learn more in the video below:
