Linkbot Robots Aim To Teach Kids About Robotics

You cannot get enough robots when you are a kid, but the cost means that many kids do miss out on this brilliant sector of engineering. However, this is Linkbot and they are planning to change all of that by making robots and the building of robotics affordable and enjoyable. This project is currently raising funds through Kickstarter, but it still has some way to go before it is fully funded and that is where you can help by pledging funds, in return, there are some cool perks available.

These are the details on the cool Linkbot robot system;

What makes the Linkbot unique is its unlimited capability to expand. The Linkbot is equipped with 3 mounting surfaces to attach additional modules or accessories. You can use our SnapConnectors to easily snap-on accessories such as wheels, a gripper, a camera mount and more. There’s also a #6-32 bolt pattern on each mounting surface so you can attach virtually anything to the Linkbot. For advanced users, we offer all the 3D models of our accessories on our website so you can 3D print them yourself.

The Linkbot is currently on Kickstarter where a pledge of just $130 (£85) will bag you base Linkbot model.
