Jo Drage, director, said: “Our second year at Toy Fair has proven to be even more successful by the introduction of our new 20 new science kits and the new Concept Car. T&K are proud to be keeping our technology and kits both innovative and exciting, for both children and adults alike.”
The Concept Car is a remote-controlled vehicle that can be steered from your iOS device, and by placing the augmented reality mats on the floor or surface (each mat relates to a different famous place or building), users can drive the car and see on-screen the car exploring the cityscape. This will require the downloading of an app to your iOS device which recognises the augmented reality pads.
Thames & Kosmos has launched 20 new science kits, expanding the range within each of the four current series: Little Labs, Ignition, Exploration and Signature Series. Build a battery that produces electricity from lemon juice, then use this battery to power a digital clock with LCD display. Introduce children as young as eight to their own Chemistry Set or Biology Lab complete with microscope and pre-prepared specimens on slides. The new Scope Constructor enables users to build their own microscope, telescope and binoculars, teaching young scientists how the tools work by letting them build the scopes from simple, reconfigurable parts. Every Thames & Kosmos science kit comes complete with a full-colour, easy-to-follow experiment manual.
