Ziro Robotics Kit For Kids

Ziro Is a Nifty Hand-Controlled Robotics Kit for Kids (+Video)

Romain Dillet | May 23, 2016

Meet Ziro, a robotics kit that lets you build all sorts of vehicles using a few motors, a smartphone, a glove and your imagination. Ziro’s default kit comes with four wireless motors and enough pieces to build a small car. You can now back this project on Indiegogo.
I’ve talked with ZeroUI, the company behind Ziro a few weeks ago. Their prototype was already working quite well and a couple of kids immediately started playing with it.
But Ziro isn’t just yet another RC car. Ziro lets you build cars, cardboard robots, articulated animals and more. For instance, if you get the creator bundle upgrade, you’ll receive a few cardboard layouts of things you could build with Ziro.

One example of what should be possible with the proposed kit. Many of the projects use cutouts from cardboard to make the projects keep costs down. Source:
