The Toy Industry Association has awarded the Meccano Meccanoid G15 Robot the “2016 Innovative Toy of the Year.”  The Meccanoid comes with over one thousand phrases and has voice recognition to make this personal robot a child’s best friend. You build the Meccanoid G15 or Meccanoid G15 KS (Kid Size, 4′ tall) using the latest Meccano parts. It is an advanced, yet easy-to-use Robotics Building platform. With 600+ pieces, the G15 will be a two-foot tall best buddy, telling jokes and playing games for hours!

More than a toy, the Meccanoid G15™ features Meccano’s new innovations in robotics. Meccanoid G15™ uses advanced technology and four servo motors to deliver realistic movement.

Programming your Meccanoid G15™ is easy and intuitive. No special skills are required. The powerful, built-in Meccabrain™ is the key to its programming. It contains 64 megabits of flash memory allowing it to learn movements and record sounds that play back. The Meccanoid G15™ can be programmed in three innovative ways:

• Thanks to its Learned Intelligent Movement (LIM) technology, you can simply move its arms or speak to it and Meccanoid records what you’re doing and repeats it back to you!

• For more interactive fun, use the Motion Capture feature (powered by ExtremeReality.com) on the Meccanoid app for your smart device, available for free download. Place your smart device into the compartment in Meccanoid’s chest, activate the Motion Capture feature and marvel as Meccanoid mirrors your every action!

• Or swipe the on-screen Ragdoll avatar to make Meccanoid twist, turn or move any way you want! With six motors to control its arms and feet, this little robot can show off some slick moves.

You can download the free app from Google Play or AppStore. Works with iOS and Android. Then build, program, and play with this fully-operational android. Watch this awesome bot at http://www.meccano.com/watch?vid=31.
