Meccanoid G15 – one of Forbe’s Top 10 Toys for 2015!
Robotic toys and sets are some of the hottest toys on the market today and there’s a good reason why you’ll want to consider buying them for your kids. By using robotic toys, interacting with them, playing with them, building them and programming them, you give your child an educational boost.
This is because robotic toys help kids in the area of S.T.E.M., which is Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Kids learn skills that help them be more effective in the way they learn and are able to apply that learning.
The Meccanoid G15 is an extremely advanced robotic toy that kids will love because it has a ton of interactive features. One of the features is that it knows the owner’s voice commands.
While it comes with the ability to be able to understand commands and users can add more. The robot understands when it’s commanded to make certain movements.
You can instruct the robot to take a step to the left or right or to go backward or come forward. Kids can program the robot to be able to respond to commands that they think of.
This is something that helps kids in the field of technology as well as science. The Meccanoid is so sophisticated it can freely interact with people. It has the ability to have a conversation with kids because of the huge database of phrases (over 1,000) it already knows.
It’s so intelligent it can even talk to you about facts you might know or it can make you laugh by sharing a joke. When you’re quiet, the robot can speak first just like another human can.
If you tell the robot what your name is, he’ll store that in his database and be able to recall it at a later date. The robot has LIM which is Learned Intelligent Movement coupled with Motion Capture. This is a feature that lets you give the robot certain movements and sounds that you want him to do. When you want him to, the robot will then do the movements or sounds that you program into him.
When he moves, it looks realistic because he has 6 motors that are working to make the movements look natural. The robot is able to work with the use of a smartphone app.
All you have to do to make the robot move is to create the movements on the app and the robot will respond. There are 600 pieces to the robot. He comes with a charger, a rechargeable battery, a Meccabrain, tools and other assembly pieces. The Meccanoid stands around 2 feet in height and is a great gift idea for kids between the ages of 8-13.
I hope this was helpful.
