Programmable Bricks Teach Children the Basics of Robotics
Austria – Robo Wunderkind is a new kind of toy that lets its users build a robot using module bricks. It’s designed to get children from five upwards thinking as engineers and coders, and it looks like a lot of fun.
The Robo Wunderkind kits are made from a variety of modules, blocks that have their own specific function, and can be clicked together to make whatever robot the user desires. Kids can fit the motors, servos, sensors, cameras and even motion detectors together then control their robot creation using the Robo Play app (iOS and Android) which connects to the robot using either wifi or bluetooth. The blocks are also compatible with traditional Lego – which gives users almost endless creative scope. There are three kits available to pre-order – Starter ($199), Advanced ($349) and Professional ($699), each kit having progressively more components allowing the creation of bigger and more sophisticated robots.
