Robo Wunderkind aims to do for robots what littleBits and other newbie-friendly electronic kits are doing for gadgets. Made by Robo Technologies Inc., the robot kit is made of modules that snap together with the help of a simple adapter.

Like the aforementioned electronics kits, Robo Wunderkind greatly simplifies the act of building a robot. Each module has holes on its six sides where the adapter’s studs can fit.

The orange rectangular box in the images is Robo Wunderkind’s core module. It has an ARM Cortex A8 SoC, 256GB RAM, 4GB storage, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, microphone, speaker and a 1500mAh battery. The other modules add an extra battery, a motor, a servo, an LED display, an E-ink display, a laser pointer, a camera, an accelerometer, a proximity sensor, an infrared sensor, a light sensor and a temperature sensor. You can also get wheels, dummy cubes and LEGO-compatible adapters.

For programming the robots, Robo Wunderkind chose to go with a mobile app with a drag-and-drop interface. The created program is sent over Bluetooth.

Robo Wunderkind appears to be pretty much finalized and in fact has been tested by a couple of elementary schools, as you’ll see in the video below. Robo Technologies is now gearing up for mass production, hence its Kickstarter fundraiser.

Pledge at least $149 (USD) on Kickstarter to receive a Robo Wunderkind kit as a reward.
