Sony's New Coding And Robotics Kit Will Help Kids Learn About Technology

While we wait for more educational institutions and governments to maybe put that into practice, in the meantime, it seems that Sony is laying the foundations of educational tools by announcing the KOOV Trial Kit, the company’s second coding, robotics, and design kit to its STEAM education offerings.

This follows the launch of the KOOV Educator Kit which was launched back in 2018, and has been designed to be an abbreviated take on the kit, where it would introduce core skills in coding, robotics, and design. This will help students develop the necessary basic skills as well as the thought processes behind it.

Nintendo Labo Vr Kit For The Switch Announced

Nintendo Labo VR Kit For The Switch Announced

Last month it was reported that Nintendo could be working to bring virtual reality (VR) to the Nintendo Switch soon. The good news is that it looks like they have in a rather interesting way in the form of the Nintendo Labo VR Kit. As you can see, this is a VR headset that is reminiscent of Google Cardboard where the Switch will act as the display for the VR headset.

Also judging by the design on the outside of the box, there are various ways for users to enjoy VR using the kit, such as creating a kit that looks like a bird and experience “flying”, a gun-like kit that could let players play an FPS game, and there is also a kit that looks like it could double up as a camera of sorts.

Nissan And Habitat For Humanity Kit Out A Titan For Building Stuff

Nissan and Habitat for Humanity kit out a Titan for building stuff

Nissan and the housing organization Habitat for Humanity have gone to work together and created this Ultimate Work Titan concept truck. Based on a Titan XD Diesel Crew Cab, the truck is an off-road capable mobile office for construction work.

Having interviewed construction site supervisors and volunteers across USA, Nissan and Habitat came up with these basic requirements for their joint venture concept: First of all, the truck needed off-road capability, without question. Second, the interior should be able to transform into a mobile office, and third, the bed would need to feature easily accessed but lockable tool storage and space for ladders.

2020 Toyota Supra Getting A Cx Racing 2jz Engine Swap Kit

2020 Toyota Supra getting a CX Racing 2JZ engine swap kit

Let's not act surprised by an aftermarket kit to put a 2JZ engine into the 2020 Toyota Supra. The new Supra's chief engineer, Tetsuya Tada, already advised anyone planning such a swap to "please buy the four-cylinder. It will be cheaper." What's surprising is that the kit is being advertised before the Supra's even gone on sale, and it's coming from CX Racing. The tuning firm offers a long list of equipment, but it might be most known for selling turbochargers and plumbing on eBay.

The company might also have been surprised by response to the 2JZ swap kit announcement. When CX Racing posted a render of a blue Supra with a blue-hued 2JZ dropped perfectly in the forward bay, naysayers streamed down from the hills. The primary gripe was that the B58, an engine only in production since 2015, hasn't been tuned to its limits, so why "swap in a heavier less efficient engine for the sake of nostalgia?" No one knew the B58 had so many defenders. We won't get the four-cylinder Supra in the U.S., so swaps will put more B58s on the market for those who covet their potential.
