Tinkermite replaces the wooden barnyard shape puzzles of yore with a tablet (video)


When we were young, our favorite toy was slotting the right trains from Thomas the Tank Engine into a wooden shape puzzle, but times have moved on since then. Now, Jacob Sullivan wants to give those baby toys a 21st century makeover, eschewing personified trains for teaching kids the inner workings of your Tablet PC. The Tinkermite comes with Camera, WiFi, CPU, Memory and Battery "modules" that you fit into the slots, while on the flip side there's a magnetic drawing board for doodling. The project's accepting your cash on Kickstarter, we're just worried about what'll happen if your kids mistake your $500 slate for their $50 toy and get a crash course in how these devices are really constructed.
