“Frank Hornby: the boy who made $1,000,000 with a toy.”
These are the first words in what could be called The Meccano Story.
In 1898, Frank Hornby invented a toy for his two sons using nuts, bolts
and other random parts, and the boys’ imaginations were awakened. Meccano still specialises in creating realistic vehicles today, and both adults and children all over the world get fired up playing with Meccano Maker Systems!
Don’t just build a structure, build a friend, with the Meccanoid G15 Personal Robot. This kit has everything your child needs to build Meccanoid, including tools and joining screws. Although there are over 600 pieces to him, your child doesn’t need to be a robotics engineer to program Meccanoid once he’s been assembled.
A built-in Meccabrain contains a special flash memory that allows Meccanoid to learn movements, record and play back sounds. Simply move his arms or speak to him and Meccanoid will record this and repeat it back to you! And with over 1,000 pre-programmed phrases, jokes, witty comebacks and
wicked dance moves, this wise cracking humanoid will have the whole family in fits of laughter! The G15 has six motors which create realistic movement, and you can even download the Meccanoid smartphone app to activate the Motion Capture feature. Watch as he mimics your child’s every action. They move, he moves. If they want a high-five, they definitely won’t be left hanging!
For an even greater challenge, Meccanoid can be dismantled and reconstructed into a ferocious dinosaur! Every tool and part is included in this kit – but don’t let the step-by-step instructions stop your child. The same parts can be used again to build whatever structure their imagination takes them!
