Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit

Category: Tech

Believe it or not, Star Wars was actually one of the sources of inspiration behind a number of scientific milestones – including energy weapons, bionic prosthesis, and (of course) robotics. Now, if you’ve got even a passing interest in the latter discipline or you want to get your kids a head-start in the tech industry, you can turn yet again to that galaxy far, far away in order to learn or teach it with the littleBits Droid Inventor Kit.

Complete with everything you need, this DIY kit will allow you to build, program, and control your own Astromech droid – including circuit boards, wheels, body panels, a transmitter, and even the battery. All you need to supply yourself is a smartphone. It even comes with sheets of decals to custom design your robot’s exterior appearance. And, once you’ve got your bot built, you can teach the droid a number of different skills (from head spins to self-guided navigation), take it on one of 16+ included missions, or even take it apart and build a new droid from scratch. It’s an excellent way to foster an interest in emerging tech while still having fun. This killer robotics kit retails for just $100.
