ATOMS are iPhone-controlled, DIY toy kits
If you're into do-it-yourself toys -- and really, who isn't? -- you're probably very happy that the recent Kickstarter for ATOMS was a resounding success. The tiny building tools can turn practically anything into a working gadget or toy, complete with iOS compatibility via Bluetooth.
There are 13 different ATOMS modules that perform functions like sensing light, detecting motion, providing power to moving parts and even exploding into multiple pieces. The blocks can interconnect with existing Lego structures, or be used in all-new creations.
When the toys begin shipping in June 2013, they will come in different bundled configurations. The most interesting of these is the iOS Control Set, which gives you everything you need to build a remote control vehicle, fully controllable via your iPhone or iPad.
