Ike Daruswat has taken to Kickstarter to raise the $50,000 required to take the unique BEEBOT wooden puzzle drone into production and on to higher things.
Watch the video below to learn more about this unique project which is suitable for anyone over the age of 8 to complete and provides a fantastic look into the “miracle of flight through exciting and entertaining educational fun”, says it’s developer.
We develop BEEBOT because we want parents and children to explore and play with drones safely. The “SHELL” idea was used to protect BEEBOT users, the propellers are inside the shell, away from fingers and body parts. But instead of just an ordinary protective shell, it is also a puzzle to be put together. Kids love puzzles and flying toys so we combined the two.
HOW HEXAGON SHAPE COMES FROM? “Why do you need a huge drone?, Why not combine multiple smaller drones to build it a huge drone. BEEBOT can do it”
The hexagon shape is modelled on the bee hive, a very efficient weight bearing structure. This shape is fit for connecting multiple BEEBOTS together. Each player can connect BEEBOTS in form of multiple BEEBOTS together in order to form a giant BEEBOT, not just an one drone. This concept can encourage kids and everyone to join, communicate and share relationship and experience among each other.
BeeBot is a pre-built circuit, soldering is not required. Players will do just snap the motors to the main part, then the circuit is completed. More than just a toy, BEEBOT is a toy kit inspires children, imparts knowledge on drones .It teaches focus and problem solving to complete a task. Promotes confidence creativity and design awareness. A hands-on interactive activity. Develops children thinking abilities. The handy and affordable design is created with all genders in mind, empowering both boys and girls to build their own drones.
