The cute Tama-Robo moves around with a light sensor
So fancy a light sensor moving robot? The Tama-Robo is your toy. No only is he terribly cute, Tama-Robo comes in a round ball cup with a friendly smile and four light sensors. Shine a torch at him and he’ll roll his way over to you, changing directions as you cahgne the course of light. But first you need to put him together — easily done with just the use of a screwdriver, making him ideal for kids to learn about engineering and building things while supervised by an adult.
By making alterations to the weighting inside the Tama-Robo’s body too you can change the way he moves, so he’s never really boring! In fact he’s just too clever to be called a toy! Available at $70, watch him here and grab yours too!
