Toys that are smart and fun

Techstination feature for Tuesday, December 20, 2016

Toys that are smart and fun.    I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your Techstination for gadgets and gear.    Techie toys for kids keep getting better and better.   Electronink is out with Circuit Scribe that lets kids…of any age….draw real working circuits using conductive ink.  CEO Brett Walker…

“You can make various different projects whether it’s just learning the basics of electricity.  A lot of our popular components are LEDs and dimmer switches.”

When it comes to robotic toys… you have to love what WowWee has done with CHiP, the robotic dog.  CTO Davin Sufer…

“When you turn CHiP on, if the ball is on, he’ll be asked to go grab his ball, bring it back to you.  If you’re wearing a Smart Band, use that to know when you’re in the room, when you’re leaving the room.”

WowWee’s Coji robot is designed to help younger kids learn the basics of coding.   There’s also a Coder MiP robot that’s see through, programmable and fun.   And WowWee has put some smarts to work in the Lumi app enabled gaming drone.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
