What are Tinkerbots?
Tinkerbots (formerly called ‘Kinematics Blocks’) is a toy building set with easy-to-add robotics. As a result, it possible for young children (and adults, too) to create an endless number of toy robots. This is done by simply by snapping together Tinkerbots’ patented “Power Brain,” kinetic modules and passive pieces. You can even add LEGO. No wiring or programming required. Tinkerbots is like “a living LEGO.”
This easy to use platform is the perfect hands-on introduction to the world of robotics. While experiencing hours of fun, children won’t even notice that they are actually learning. Tinkerbots is a great way to form a solid foundation in technology. This product is not only for children; it’s for the entire family. It’s a toy that fascinates kids and parents alike, engaging them in play together. And with its Arduino-compatible microcontroller, Tinkerbots is also the perfect tool for schools and all the makers out there.
