Xiamen, China, 26th May 2016: Young robot fan Tao Hu & his fellow robot maker buddies have recently launched a crowdfunding campaign at Indiegogo seeking support for their new age educational robot kit IronBot. Designed for kids aged 8 and onwards, this 3-in-1 robotics kit is aimed to inspired STEM & robotics learning in young minds yet through a playful and fun environment.
IronBot is here to be the next-door mate for kids out there, enabling the little ones to assemble their very own “little robot friend” by assembling the kit into 3 forms of robot biped robot, robotic arm & humanoid robot. The new age robot kit is based on an award winning prototype that has been honored with the 3rd prize at China-US Young Maker Competition.
“As robot fans & makers, we are committed to educational robotics designing & development. Kids are our future & future of techs lies in robots with IronBot, we are looking forward to open up a brand new chapter in the story of kids & robot that also holds the key to the future robotics world. After several experiments, IronBot is almost on its way to completion but such a huge project demands a solid financial backup for mass production and hence the crowdfunding campaign. Your support would be really encouraging for us”, stated Tao Hu, one of the leading makers behind IronBot.
The campaign has this goal to gather around 30,000 USD within 45 days.
The 3-in-1 futuristic robotic kit will not only enable young minds to assemble & create 3 forms of robots but will also enable them to play different fun games with it. Through IronBot’s APP controller, kids will be able to control the robot just in real time as well as set its movement track & let it function as per personal setting as robots are used in plant.
“The coolest part is that kids creating humanoid robots through the kit can even put the smartphones on the robot’s head that will act as its brain. Now, he would be your robot buddy who can speak, listen, act and dance with you, just like your new play-mate. By APP Xlink graphical programming, little ones can program & design the robot’s thinking. Kids would have easy module combinations here that will edit X various forms of logical thinking & reactions meant to inspire imagination & logical thinking in young minds.”
Every kid will be able to customize the IronBot with his or her preferred character, name, voice & expression for a unique personalized robot buddy.
A good host of perks are waiting for the donators, based on the donated amount.
