Tinkamo is a set of smart building blocks that uses innovative technology to educate and prepare children, aged five to 12, for the future. The product is AI-powered and wireless, boasting programmable interactive components. In addition, Tinkamo connects to a mobile application that digitally enhances play time.

The smart building blocks not only challenge children's imagination but they also teach them valuable skills. The little ones are able to build, code and interact with the world. Tinkamo's developers have made the UX/UI aspect of the product fairly easy to interact with — one builds, then "Drags'n'Drops" in the app to code. Afterward, the child can freely play with the creation. The smart building blocks are essentially a high-tech version of LEGO bricks and the creators have made Tinkamo fully compatible with its less-digitized equivalent.
