Build machines and power them with light! Engino Solar Powered Machines builds eight different models with moving parts powered by a 3V motor connected to a photovolatic (solar) cell.
The 36 page, full-colour, illustrated, instruction manual is very easy to follow, with no reading required. The Engino building system is comprised of multifaceted rods and connectors that share some unique geometrical features that allow connectivity on up to 6 sides simultaneously. In essence, this (patent pending) design transforms rods into connectors and allows dense or open construction. This allows engineers to build simple or complex models quickly with a smaller number of different components.
