TINKERBOTS

THIS IS TINKERBOTS

Play, learn, experiment

Tinkerbots enables the fun of play to be combined with learning like no other toy. With Tinkerbots robotics kits, children bring their ideas to life.

Build your own robots and bring them to life.

Tinkerbots is what you make it - Pick up the Powerbrain and build your own robot. With different modules that easily plug together and automatically transfer data and power, there are no limits to your many creative possibilities.

WHAT MAKES TINKERBOTS SO SPECIAL?

EASY TO OPERATE

Built robots are capable of learning and can be controlled remotely via app.

NEW 5-IN-1 SENSOR

Detects light, colours, movement, distance and has a follow function

REMOTE CONTROL APP

Easy to use and freely configurable remote control app

ALTERNATIVE CONTROL OPTIONS

Programming control commands via the 5-in-1 sensor

MODULARITY:
A CONSTRUCTION KIT FOR MANY POSSIBILITIES

It all starts with the PowerBrain, a red cube with a microcontroller that transmits energy and data to the modules you click on. Then your creativity is called for: should it be the Twister, Pivot, Motor, 5-in-1 Sensor or Grabber module? You decide for yourself!

PROGRAMMABLE:
TEACHABLE AND REMOTE CONTROLLABLE

Your robot can learn a lot from you - teach it movements manually or connect the PowerBrain via Bluetooth to the Tinkerbots World App and use the individually configurable remote control!

MOVEMENT:
VARIOUS MOTION MODULES

With TINKERBOTS kits you get five movement modules to make your robot walk/run, turn and grab. This gives your robot all the freedom it needs to let your imagination run wild!

COMPATIBILITY:
EXPANDABLE WITH LEGO® AND OTHER BUILDING BLOCKS

The Tinkerbots kits are compatible with LEGO® and similar building systems - all thanks to the building block adapters. Be creative and give the robot your own personal touch!
