TinkerBots is a building block construction toy set that allows children to become budding robotics designers. TinkerBots has a number of bricks in their collection which are functional, such as their Power Brain, which provides power for the other active pieces, and kinetic pieces, such as twisters, pivots, motors, grabbers, and more. There is even a TinkerBots app for mobile devices that allows you to remote control your creations. What’s also cool are the LEGO adapters which allow you to plug in your existing LEGO blocks to your robot.
TinkerBots are currently in a fundraising mode on Indigogo, but over exceeded their fundraising target in just the first week – so we’re looking forward to seeing Tinkerbots come to life very soon.
