You can add a signal system into a traditional train toy. You can repurpose a toy dog into an electronic guard dog. You can give an ordinary IKEA lamp some feelings, make it see and hear. You can let a common Elmo toy become a robotic tea maker. You can use your imagination…


It’s an easy way for you to combine toys with open hardware and have fun. Why toys? Because we all have many old toys, now were lying in corners somewhere, we want you bring a new life to them, they can be something “new” again! Besides, what else could be better to introduce open hardware to a kid in a toy way?


The below video shows what exactly was turning out when an IKEA lamp met with Grove – Toy Kit. Thanks Javier for the make!
