Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. Thames and Kosmos is a toy company originally created to bring science and educational toys from Germany to the U.S. And they have four toys nominated for prestigious Toy of the Year honors. Among them… WindPower 4.0 and The Amazing TightRope-Walking Gyrobot. Both sell for about forty dollars…and engage kids…probably seven or so and up. Wind Power is a real wind turbine that charges a battery to power and LED light…or an electric motor. Kids can experiment with the turbine blade angles and more. About the Gyrobot, Marketing Coordinator Tom Wetzel says…
“You build this. It’s really cool, it comes with plastic pieces to build this frame and then it teaches you how to string it up.”
And tighten the line for the robot with the gyroscope in its head to walk across. Fun while learning. There’s more at www.thamesandkosmos.com.
