By 2012, ENGINO® had already started investing heavily in further research to develop our 3rd generation of construction toys. These are called
in STEM academic circles Robotized Construction Kits. Such advanced kits require high-precision mechanisms and more robust constructions
that could remain assembled and functioning even after vigorous use, such as in robotic competitions.
The ENGINO® philosophy prioritizes ease of play, creativity and pedagogy, rather than technical modeling. But, as more and more electronic
controllers and sensors kept being added to the ENGINO® robots, the need for a specialized system became evident by 2017. That was when a
big research project started to design, prototype, test and bring into production a new technical system that would still be abiding to our
Our new Mechanics System, launched and patented early 2021, consists of a library of components that are working in conjunction with the Classic
ENGINO® parts, preserving as much as possible the attributes of creativity and reconfigurability of the original system. Students from the age of 9 can actively engage in advanced model's creation and dig further into the secrets of Science and Technology. As they grow older, they can use more specialized components to develop elaborate mechanisms that simulate real-life machines and robots. The Mechanics library includes around 100 different components, including new wheels and axles, beams and connectors and some impressing locking technologies, all compatible with the ENGINO® Classic parts!
