Here is an invention that can animate your LEGO creations, allowing you to interact with them from your smartphone. Tio is a motorized building block that works with 3D printed or old toys. The kit comes with magnetic mounts, wheels, and other accessories you need to get started.
Tio’s companion app lets you wirelessly program your creations. You will be able to change motor speed/direction, LED colors, and other settings. Tio could prove useful to students, makers, and educators. Yet another interesting Kickstarter project.
