Giffi intro from kuanjuwu on Vimeo.

Giffi, gift for future inventor is a construction kit which can let childern build their own robot or kinetic sculpture. It consists of moving parts and support parts. There are three types of moving parts now: rotating, linear actuating and sweeping. Each part has its own microcontroller inside, by simply assembling them and plug in the power (battery box or wall plug box), the user can build a moving object. There are also many passive objects that enable user to design different forms.

in short, Giffi is exploring a new generation of construction kit based on “building the movement”
