Would you like to build a robot–or twelve?
Hansol Hong and Sebastian Sanchez are making that possible.
At the recent Orange County Mini Maker Faire, Hansol and Sebastian were exhibiting their latest creation from their San Diego-based Robolink Robotics Educational Center. This is Rokit Smart, a kit from which kids (and big kids) can build twelve robots, without soldering. Rokit Smart just launched its Kickstarter campaign this week.
Since its creation in 2006, Robolink has taught students, grades 4-12, to build and program robots, in both Asia and California. According to their website, they opened their learning centers in California in 2012.
Hansol, who is both Robolink, Inc.’s Director of Business Development and the co-organizer of the San Diego Robotics Club, talked about creating Rokit Smart, some of the robots in the kit and what was involved in creating a Kickstarter campaign for his dream.
