The Offbits are a series of model robots made from everyday hardware, designed to allow for infinite buildability. Nuts, bolts, screws, springs, magnets combine to create adorable little robots.
Purchasing a starter kit gets you one of four robot models. From there, the sky's the limit. Add bits and pieces from your toolbox, discarded devices, appliances from around the house (don't do that), the engine in your dad's truck (not an activity endorsed by Offbits) or anything laying around. Offbits also offers extension packs. These allow for more complex character and even vehicles!
These kits are great for kids who love to tinker and build and will no doubt spark their imaginations. The Offbits Kickstarter currently has 13 days remaining. They've met their goal and are well on the way to hitting stretch goals. Now is a great time to jump on board and get an Offbit.
