Designed for the iPad and iPhone, Tinybop’s The Robot Factory app lets children create, test, and collect robots. They can build with exoskeletons, zephyr mechanisms, hydrostatic tentacles, machinos locomotors,G-Force mixers, and more.
They can make any robot they can imagine—robot cats, robot samurais, robot
spies—from 100 parts. They can record their own robot sounds and test their
robots to see if they will walk, run, hop, dance, and fly. They can try out
physics-driven robot parts in real-world situations and swap them out for
different results. Each child can create and save their robots in their
showroom and keep an eye on them, day or night. There are no in-app purchases
or third-party advertising. The Robot Factory Technical Manual,
in the app or on Tinybop’s website, provides a code of ethics and details about
robot parts, gizmos, and tools. Cost:
