Kamigami Robots

Kamigami Robots are the result of a partnership with Mattel, Inc. and Dash Robotics, Inc. Kamigami is an engineering set for kids ages 8+ that allows users to build, program and play.

The nature inspired robots currently available include:
  • “Scarrax” (Scoprion)
  • “Lina” (Lady bug)
  • “Terrix” (Stag Beetle)
  • “Vypod” (Rhinoceros Beetle)
  • “Bokken” (Grasshopper)
  • “Mantix” (Praying Mantis)
  • “Musubi” (Stingray)

This entry level STEM toy requires no tools for assembly. The robots are built by folding lightweight sheets of plastic and connecting them to the chassis with plastic rivets. The Kamigami Controller app is available in the iOS app store, Google Play Store, and the Amazon Appstore

The app is user friendly and provides step by step instructions and video to guide you through assembly. It should take between 30 – 60 mins to completely assemble your robot. The perforated plastic sheets are easy to pop out and were surprisingly durable. Don’t be afraid to pull too hard when bending in place to bind to the chassis.

Parental assistance is likely required for assembly

The app introduces kids to terms like “chassis” and explains that it is similar to bones and provides structure for the toy. It should be a fun process building the toy. Adult assistance will likely be needed. There are extra rivets included so don’t worry when you break or lose them (we broke and lost quite a few!)

The Kamigami robots are easy to use, durable, and entertaining. More fun will entail if you purchase more than one so that you can race, battle, and play together. We recommend that you buy at least two. After you build your robots the fun begins. The main options allow you to code and teach your robot movements, run, dance, play tag and battle.

Chassis turns green when connected via bluetooth

You can name your robot within the app. It is a very simple process to connect the robot to the app. It connects via bluetooth. Press the red button on the bottom of your toy’s chassis and the light will turn from red to green when it is connected.
