* Try out physics-driven robot parts in real world situations; swap them out for different results.
* Colorize your robots with nine different color schemes.
* Record your own robot sounds.
* Collect your robots in your own showroom. Keep an eye on them, day or night!
* Send text messages with robot stickers! Free sticker pack is included.
* Make your robots dance.
* Intuitive, safe, and kid-friendly design.
* Multi-user system: each child can create and save their own robots.
* Entertaining for kids and adults alike — play and learn together!
* No in-app purchases or 3rd party advertising.
* Download The Robot Factory Technical Manual, in the app or on our website, for code of ethics and details about robot parts, gizmos, and tools.
* Original artwork by Owen Davey, the illustrator behind TwoDots.
* Original sound design.

Version 1.1.2

New: Robo-meter will tell you if your robot is too heavy to move.

If the robo-meter turns red, you won’t be able to add more parts to your robot. You can switch out and test parts to make your robot lighter. Pro tip: wibbly arms and tools are especially heavy. Use them strategically.

Fixed: improved performance for languages that read right to left.
