Here comes Tinkerbots – robotics for the whole family
In 2013, Tinkerbots was one of the winners of the Robotdalen Innovation Award. Now, it has recently been released as a product, available for sale through Tinkerbots' own website.
The product is developed by a team of young German scientists and is a robotic building kit intended for a younger audience, or even something that the whole family can gather around. Tinkerbots means playing and learning at the same time. Through connecting the different modules, building robots and even controlling them, kids learn about robotics, mechanics and sensors. You just connect the modules in a swift movement and everything works. You can also combine them with LEGO® bricks.
The company behind the product is Kinematics GmbH. In recent years Tinkerbots has been developed from prototype to a product on the market, largely thanks to a crowdfunding campaign via Indiegogo.
