Do you know the impact of underwater planktons’ health of forests to the environment as a whole? With the help of underwater robot design, oceanographers have finally solved the riddle. Indeed, the constant expansion of marine robotics role go beyond than that of oceanic engineering.
What started with the “glider”, the first-ever underwater robot vehicle released by the US Integrated Ocean Observing System had continually created massive development and realization to better understand the planet’s greatest life source—water. And what better way to stimulate a child’s interest in underwater robotics by introducing toys that tap on such astounding masterpiece.
On top of the heaping list is the LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Underwater Robot. This 3-in-1 underwater robot design is an excellent choice when kickstarting a young child’s interest in oceanic engineering. Designed with highly posable joints, the 207-piece robot tor is crafted for children 7 years old and above as they satisfy their love for water and creatures living it. Standing at 14cm high, the robot comes with a large transparent domed helmet reminiscent of undersea explorers, red robot eye, and ballast tanks. It also comes designed with huge feet for added stability when exploring seabed. The eye can also be removed to transform the robot’s dome into a cockpit control center. Adding more fun and excitement are the included spike-tailed manta ray, a sea plant and miniature seabed with gold nugget. Indeed, underwater is a treasure trove of discovery and exhilarating experience.
It’s not just the robot, by the way. This underwater robot design by LEGO can be transformed into 3 different figures offering plenty of fun and play experiences. Aside from the standard robot design, it can also be transformed into an underwater crane complete with mechanical hands equipped with drill, grabber and claw. It can also be transformed into a submarine which comes with a manipulator arm. All to help hunt for gold and other treasure under the sea. It’s time to explore what Jack Sparrow had left under the sea with this cool robot find!
Build and rebuild the LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Underwater Robot to your heart’s content. A child can create a diorama of the ocean’s floor and explore its depths using his/her imagination. Water has always been a fascinating subject for children and robotics for underwater can help them expand their knowledge on what lies beneath the ocean floor. This will ignite kids interest not just in sunken treasures but also on sea creatures both big and small. At the same time, building more designs with the use of other LEGO sets and bricks will expand their interest in STEM and robotics while sharpening their imagination and creativity.
What glider, the first underwater robot design vehicle, had accomplished in 2009 continue to open a whole new world of discovery and wonder. Let your child’s imaginative mind unearth the mystifying mysteries of the oceans. Let them bask in the efficiency of technological advancements to understand and dig for more knowledge on the planet’s greatest resource. Start with the LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Underwater Robot to entice and incite their mind.
