TinkerBots is a modular robotics building set to teach kids about electronics. Each TinkerBot robot requires a power block (the red cube) to be able to animate. The power block includes a battery, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, an Arduino-compatible microcontroller, plus other sensors. The rest of the robot is put together using various kinetic modules, which support different types of movements such as twisting, pivoting and rolling.
