About

About this project

RC-brick is a prototype, which is designed to enhance the imagination of your children. If you ever seen a kid at play with a vehicle built from a brick set, you most probably seen it how it drove around on the ground or table and making sounds, which the vehicle would make. The RC-brick makes this possible for real.



All it needs is your charger cable to be connected to a micro-USB reduction and plug it into the brick. You will be now able to control the brick. You can choose a theme from the application, which contains the movement options and sounds, which will make the child play more realistic. You can choose various themes: construction site, firefighters or police. This way you can make the play come alive for example by sounds of police action like sirens and gunfight sounds.

Compatibility

RC-bricks are compatible with most of the toy bricks on the market. You are not limited by one brand. Even if you bought a fire truck, you can rebuild it to a police truck, helicopter or a crane thanks to the RC-brick. The time spent by playing will increase. The brick sets in combination with the RC-brick will double the fun you will have.

Battery

RC-bricks do not have their own battery. They fully use the one from the smartphone. If your smartphone battery is empty, just recharge it. You do not have to buy expensive batteries as a separate power source every time your child wants to play.

Recommended age

The toy is recommended for all ages 4+, just like the most brick sets. Rc brick will be sensed to US Consumer Product Safety Commission for testing.

Thank You for Your Support.

update:

Android version is successfully finished. 

Risks and challenges

The prototypes are made actually from the Lego® bricks, my budget did not allow me to use my own form, which would be 100% compatible. Final shape will not interfere with any design or copyrights the brick designers/company might own.

Winch-brick is under development, Wheel-motor brick and Rotor-brick are finished, actually both bricks are tested for engine damage for usage without a smartphone.

The RC brick will never replace Lego®. They are just an enhancement of the toy and similar types you might find on the internet. The budget will be used to create a real compatible form at the factory for future production.
