The idea behind the innovative product is to introduce kids and adults to the coding world, engineering and robotics. As Robolink CEO Hansol describes it, "Programming can be tedious to learn. But when a few minutes of coding can put a drone in the sky, programming brings a smile to everyone's face."


The kit retail price is about $179 and you can avail the same for $139 during it's crowdfunding campaign. Interesting, right? rush over to their Kickstarter page, where the company seeks for $50,000, the target they already achieved. Delivery slated for this spring, and can be shipped worldwide.
