So you love building your own toys? Thanks to Tio, you can bring them to life. This is a smart motorized building block that you can control from your smartphone. It could work with your 3D printed toys, LEGO creations, and everything in between. Tio communicates with your toys from your iOS or Android device.
Coding is not required to get started, but it is possible with Microsoft Touch Develop. This educational kit is getting funded on Kickstarter at this time.
