Robotics Hacker Erects Open Source ‘Lego for Adults’

  He had studied aircraft design in college and spent years at an electrics engineering outfit, but he still found the instructions completely incomprehensible. And the pieces were flimsy. And after he broke two of them, he gave up entirely.

The good news is that he resolved to create his own robotics kit that was actually worthy of the name. The result is Makeblock, a set of flexible components — including slots, wheels, timing belts, and motors — for building robotics. Wang — who oversees the five person company behind the project — describes it as “Lego for adults.”
