About this project
A few years ago, Robolink developed its first prototype of Rokit Smart to teach students how to build and program robots the easy way.
Since then, we've been using our kits to teach thousands of students how to build and program their own robots at various schools around San Diego. Some students pick it up faster than others, but ultimately everyone ends up enjoying building and programming with Rokit Smart.
Today, we want to bring that same imaginative experience to you and the rest of the world.
Rokit Smart is nearly complete and ready to ship. The only thing we are missing is your support. Please join us and help us make Rokit Smart the most affordable and fun robotics kits in the world. Together, we can revolutionize robotics education and set the foundation for future generations of robot lovers.

What's included in Rokit Smart?
"I wish I'd had Rokit Smart growing up.”
- Levi Lister, Robotics Engineer at Carnegie Mellon University
"As a home school parent, this kit has been very helpful to me.I do not need to be able to provide instruction or become an expert in the field of robotics."
– Beth from Solana Beach, CA
"Great kits for people interested in robots, simple enough for beginners, but also sophisticated enough for more advanced students."
- Jinsong from Chicago, IL (Engineer at Motorola)
"This opportunity is awesome for kids who want to learn how to incorporate everyday life and computer time into a functional working robot. My son LOVED it...and has been using his robot kit daily."
- Cherelynn from Mesa, AZ
"As an Engineer myself, I recommend this kit to introduce kids to high tech environment and tools"
- Lisbeth from San Diego, CA (Engineer at Microsoft)
Risks and challenges
Most of the risks and challenges are behind us. Our team of experienced robotics engineers poured their lives into designing this kit. Literally thousands of elementary school students have already tested prototypes of Rokit Smart. Throughout the testing phase, we worked to perfect the kit based on the feedback of the kids. These kids had a blast working with our prototypes and were able to create some absolutely incredible machines. And now, Rokit Smart is ready for you. All it's going to take is your support.
At this point, there is just one hurdle left: production. Many of the parts in this kit were custom-designed by our engineers and we have very exacting standards, so creating the molds and manufacturing the components can be very expensive. Thankfully, we have identified some top-tier factory partners who can produce our kits with a very quick turnaround time.
In order to bring the cost down to an affordable amount, we have to order at least 1000 kits from the manufacturer. To get there, we are counting on you. Give $99 right now and we will put you on the list to be one of the first to receive a Rokit Smart, so you can start on your own adventure in robotics!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
