The new Mod Robotics' MOSS Robot Construction Kit recently debuted at CES 2014.

This color-coded building block kit on Kickstarter will make you nostalgic of times when you could create a world out of your Lego sets using only your pudgy little hands.

Already having raised more money than needed for the team to hit its goal, Mod Robotics seem to be in high demand and it’s not hard to see why. Made up of 1x1 or 2x1 cube configurations, these colored-by-function bricks (green is the power source, red is the color of sensors, black for the motors and blue for the connectors) use magnets to keep your robotic masterpieces intact.

What makes this kit even savvier is that you can control your robot via iOS or Android apps using a Bluetooth module. Stats for Robotic Construction Kits Trending: This Year & Popular
