Meet the Wink: an Arduino based toy designed to teach kids programming. Unlike a few other educational kits that we have covered, this one makes transitioning from graphical style programming to written code easier. The robot can be programmed to follow lines, seek light, detect barriers, and roam autonomously.
The kit comes with lesson plans and videos to help your kids get started. The development environment for this robot works on most computers. Wink is based on the Arduino UNO. Like what you see? You can find out more here.
