TinkerBots is a new building set from Kinematics with easy-to-add robotics that makes it like "living LEGOs" and enables kids and adults to create all kinds of toy robots.

TinkerBots (formerly called 'Kinematics Blocks') is a toy building set with easy-to-add robotics that make it possible for young children (and adults, too) to create an endless number of toy robots simply by snapping together TinkerBots’ patented “Power Brain,” kinetic modules and passive pieces, and even LEGO bricks. No wiring or programming required. TinkerBots is like “living LEGOs.”


TinkerBots 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 something extremely valuable and getting a solid foundation in technology. TinkerBots 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 in sharing a learning experience. And with its Arduino-compatible microcontroller, Tinkerbots is also the perfect tool for schools and all the makers out there.

Tinkerbots will be available for pre-order starting April 10th on indiegogo. More information can be found at tinkerbots.net

That is very neat. It is for children 5 and up so even I could create robots with it :)

My son got Lego Mindstorms for Christmas one year but lost interest when he got older. We sold them on ebay.
