TinkerBots Teach Robotics with Easy Building Block Design

  Just about every child is fascinated by robotics however, to use even the simplest introductory set means waiting until they are older. With TinkerBots robotic kit by Kinematics, building a robotic system is now possible for the youngest of engineers, and their parents. TinkerBots is a building block-based robotic kit learning toy that requires no programming knowledge to make moving and usable systems. The main piece of the robotic kit is a red controller block known as the, "Power Brain" containing an Arduino microcontroller along with the battery, a speaker, a gyro sensor and Bluetooth. Other blocks attach to the Power Brain by snapping into place and can do a [...]
