Tinkamo is a set of wireless programmable smart building blocks that teach your children to learn how to code and unleash their potentials to invent !
They are as cute as candies and it is as easy as ABC.
Brings Your LEGOs to Life
Have LEGO® collections at home? Let’s bring them to life! All it takes is 15 minutes and endless imagination. Tinkamo is compatible with LEGO® and LEGO® Technic. Kids can build in their favorite ways.
Empowers Kids to Create
Kids think differently about their world. Tinkamo provides 14 hardware blocks and 20 software blocks, including AI speech and face cognition. They empower kids to explore the real world and build creative solutions.
Makes Coding Fun
With Tinkamo’s wireless connectivity and super easy drag'n'drop coding app, kids can see instant results. Tinkamo also includes many mind-twisting quests and real-life challenges to get the young minds started. Never let the fun wait.
To get add-ons, just add the price ($19 for each) to your original pledge, we will ask you for details when our project ends.
Tinkamo has lowered the age of maker and coding education to 5, before kids can use Arduino. The huge variety of sensors, controllers and actuators enable schools with cross-disciplinary and project-based learning scenarios. Tinkamo also supports Scratch and Python, which makes it a powertool for educators.
Although Tinkamo team has over 10 years of experience of product research and development, manufacturing, and education, building an electronic product is always a big challenge. It takes a large amount of time, resources, and money. We decided to join the world’s first and largest hardware accelrator HAX, which offers acceleration programs in both US and China and access to an incredible network of mentors and experts. We have received a tremendous amount of help in product development and business development to ensure that we can deliver Tinkamo to you with the highest quality possible. HAX is in the heart of the “Silicon Valley for hardware” Shenzhen, 40 minutes north of Hong-Kong.
Shenzhen is the world factory with no question. The supercharged HAX lab located in Shenzhen enabled us to produce prototypes in an amazing speed. Making a hardware device is an art of balancing among user experience, technology, and cost. We have explored many possibilities of our prototypes. Our 1st-generation design has won the Good Design Award 2017. But we continued to iterate based on our first design, because we have a clear goal in mind, to Make Coding Fun and Easy.
This project is promoted by Jellop, a direct response online advertising agency specializing in Kickstarter campaigns on Facebook Ads and Google AdWords.
Risks and challenges
Every project will have challenges, and to make a product for kids is even more. The manufacturing process is often a long and complex one. Our prototypes are in an advanced stage and our playtime activities have been carefully crafted. We may seem plentifully prepared, but the road to product completion is not always as smooth as anticipated.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
