As robots go, KIKO has personality. Maybe it's the blinking eyes and sound effects. Whether following the movement of your hand or working its way through an obstacle course that you set up, KIKO seems to interact with you. KIKO is a 107-piece robot that includes infrared sensors and artificial intelligence. Mobility (360-degree) comes from the movement of his 6 legs. He can operate in two modes; Follow Me (I would love to try this one behind our cat) and Explore. Another great robotics kit from our friends at OWI.
OWI, Inc.® - KIKO.893 the infrared sensor detecting, obstacle exploring robot has spent life traveling the galaxies and surveying uninhabitable regions. A life full of adventures and exploration was fun, but it was lonely work. KIKO.893 set its infrared sensor to search for life in the universe, and in doing so, discovered Earth. Now that KIKO.893 has finally found life, it loyally follows any object that approaches it, and won't stop until switched back into explore mode.
KIKO.893 has two pre-programmed modes (Follow-me and Explore) and scans its surroundings by using AI (artificial intelligence), I/R (infrared sensor), and six legs which allow it to turn 360 degrees and seamlessly complete obstacles.
Once your budding engineer (age 8+) constructs this 107-piece STEM kit, they will quickly realize this is no ordinary robot. KIKO.893 offers a wonderful sound and light effect, which develops its own emotions and gestures. Create challenging mazes for KIKO.893 to navigate around, or just select follow-me mode and enjoy having the adorable robot pursue. Most of all, do not treat KIKO.893 as an ordinary robot, but rather, a scholarly friend!
The RobotiKits from OWI have no comparison. For flawless assembly: 5 stars. For clarity of instructions: 5 stars. For durability of constructed robots: 5 stars. For robots that actually work as advertised: 5 stars. Let's face it - not all kits turn out as well as they are supposed to, but you can count on these kits going together and functioning with the perfection of precision engineered components. All kits come with a pre-assembled circuit board. Most components are made from plastic and either snap together, or hold in place with the provided screws. Some kits may require some additional tools listed below. What sort of knowledge will be gleaned while enjoying these fun kits? Gear structure, battery wiring, motor principles, electronic circuits, circuit block diagrams, and comprehending assembly instructions. Try one today! CHOKING HAZARD (1). Not <3yrs.
