Makeblock – Next Generation of Construct Platform

Makeblock is a marvel of modern robotics and a reminder that we’re officially too old to keep up. Seriously, kids today have access to all kinds of things that will spur their creativity and put them ahead of the rest of us, that the future is starting to feel like a scary place. So what does Makeblock’s Next Generation of Construct Platform do exactly? What doesn’t it do?

The Kickstarter campaign, which has reached $185,576 as of this writing (with just a $30,000 goal), highlights a platform that is capable of making everything from toy cars and robots to 3D printers. And we’re not talking cookie-cutter stuff here, kids. You don’t have to build your car to any one set of specifications. You’re only limited by imagination. How does it all work? Well, if I knew that I wouldn’t be working, would I?
