Hayes Solos Raffle and Amanda J. Parkes are the creators of Topobo, a building kit with kinetic memory. That means the creations remember and playback the way you push and pull them. Build a creature, teach it how to walk, it walks. Taking the ideas behind Legos and Capsela to a new level, Topobo is fun and subversively educational! Currently a project in Hiroshi Ishii's Tangible Media Group at the MIT Media Lab, hopefully one day Topobo will be commercialized.
