Rokenbok Education as created a new educational learning platform and robotic building block system called the ROKduino which is based on the old Reno platform and has been specifically designed for children’s of all ages to help bring their robotic creations to life.
The ROKduino robotic building block system is available in a number of kits providing a range of different components that can be combined and then programmed to carry out a huge variety of different actions and applications.
Watch the promotional video below to learn more about this new system which is taken to Kickstarter to raise the $75,000 it requires to go into production. This developers explain a little more about the system’s inspiration and design.
For 20 years, Rokenbok’s engineering toys have been teaching children to make things that do things. All of our pieces snap together with ease, so children can create whatever they can imagine. We are so excited about adding ROKduino to our incredibly popular engineering toys. All of our building components are fully compatible with ROKduino. Soon, your child will be building and programming Rokenbok robots to do whatever they can dream up.
We’ll provide step-by-step instructions to build three robots, a Beetle Bot, a Scorpion Hunter, and a Ferris Wheel. But that’s just the start. With 400+ building components, including sensors, motor modules, hinges, lead screw module, bearing block, wheels and more, your imagination is the only limit to what you can build with this set. And, all Rokenbok building components are compatible with the ROKduino set. With ROKduino, children of any age can build and program their own robots. It’s so easy! Here’s how it works:
1. Build your creation – follow the included instructions to build one of three robots, or design and build your own robotic invention!
2. Plug the ROKduino block into your computer. No coding experience is required. Our drag-and-drop programming makes coding for beginners a breeze.
3. Watch your creation come to life! You’ll be amazed at how much you can do with this set.
