A kit to quickly build app-controlled toys and inventions with everyday objects and materials

Tio is the kit to quickly build app-controlled toys and inventions with everyday objects and materials.

The Tio kit encourages creativity and long term play by combining the feeling of creating with your own hands and the power of today's technology. The kit includes blocks, magnetic mounts, wheels and accessories that can be attached to almost anything including recycled and craft material, lego, old toys, gadgets and even 3D prints.

The app customises and programs the toys. It controls many features like speed, direction and colours. Key to the experience is the Tio storybook, full of friendly characters who guide children through imaginary worlds and their first creations.

Tio was dreamt up by three aspiring innovators with a vision to inspire tomorrow’s inventors. Kids at heart – Peter Spence, Ashley Wiltshire (both Royal College of Art Innovation Design Engineering), and Mario Morello – are dedicated to creating a new way of inventing, playing and learning together.
