Code your robots and machines to interact with the surrounding!

Course Overview

We all know the importance of learning to code. Coding gives a new perspective to problem-solving and develops skills that are essential in the 21st century. But to learn to code, sitting in front of the computer the whole day is no fun at all.


Creating and building with your hands improves dexterity, confidence when interacting with actual machines and objects in our daily lives. It also builds confidence to solve real-life problems.


So, we at Blix with our deep experience are producing world-class toys, developed the Boffin ecosystem. This combines construction activities and coding to help one become an innovator in the true sense.


Boffin is developed around the Arduino Nano microcontroller that adds brain and computing power to our already existing Blix Robotics products. Boffin also comes with peripheral boards which act as inputs and outputs to the mainboard and they are the medium through which the Blix parts can interact with the environment.

What Parents say

I can’t remember how I found Blix on an Instagram page and today my child is completely loving it. I, as a mother who didn’t help him in science, robotics, or coding. But, Blix is doing really really good to him. Now, he is doing the second module with blix and he has stopped playing games on iPad or PS. I didn’t have to stop him, I just shifted him towards Blix

Burhanuddin has gone through various free sessions of different coding classes but it never struck me that this is what I want him to do. But when I came across Blix I found that it is a hands-on experience. The child is actually doing something! Plus it is building his knowledge. I researched Blix on the internet and I decided that this is something I will give my child as a gift.

- Mrs. Zainab
Parent of an 8-year-old

When I went through the courses of Blix, Akshit was really keen on learning robotics, AI, and ML. This propelled me to get in touch with you and when I received the Kit, I was expecting it to be a normal online available robotics kit but it was a well-designed kit with the construction set. Then my child started the live sessions and followed every challenge to build the robots. He enjoyed making line followers and many more amazing machines.

- Dr. Manoranjan
Parent of a 10-year-old

We found it really interesting to learn with Blix. I, myself love electronics and wanted to introduce it to my child. I planned to teach it with different sets to my child but I couldn’t do it. But, with Blix, it was much easier to introduce. When the live classes started, my child got more excited and interested in learning about electronics.
