We all love Lego as kids, and even some of us still love them. Now, the Greek Club has introduced a futuristic Lego as Cyberpunk Printed Circuit Boards (PCB). This is a truly futuristic idea that will take the toy industry to an all-new level. Here is all that you need to know about this futuristic toy model and how it will impact the future industry.
What is Greek Club Cyberpunk Printed Circuit Boards?
The Greek Club is giving you an opportunity to unleash your imagination by building new and improved Cyberpunk Robo-machines. These machines can be kick-ass War machines and fighters. All you have to do is wear your workbench gear, put up the goggles, and start building these lethal and amazing machines.
As of now, most of the war-robots have ugly wires hanging from the major parts of the robots. These wires not only look ugly but also add to the drag of the machine. However, the Cyberpunk PCB models have a machine body made from PCBs. Yeah, you heard that right; they make it of PCBs. Therefore, there is no requirement for ugly wires to power the robot. If you imagine, the PCB routes act like blood vessels for these Robots, that are embedded in the machine’s skin.

Build Unique Robots
Every robot you build will have different features, unique designs, and different shapes. The built-in electrical circuits and connections will help you assemble strong and neat machines that will perform best when the time comes. Building the robots is as simple as these three steps:
- Separate the PCBs from the modular parts that are packed in a meticulous way.
- Clip the parts and solder them together.
- Solder the electronic components with the body.
- Install the battery.
Voila! your robot is ready to fly and kick some Robo-ass.
Hiding the Wires in Plain Sight
For those of you who do not have the idea of Printed Circuit Boards, you must know that all the electronic items that you use have PCBs. These PCBs have connections that are printed into Silicone boards. Electric signals travel through these connections and enable the electronic machine to function as per your requirement.
Greek Club has raised the standard by instead of putting the PCBs inside the machine, the PCBs have been used as the body of the machine. For this purpose, special aesthetic PCBs have are available. These aesthetic PCBs look amazing and the robot appears as futuristic and like having an electrical nervous system running throughout.
5 Models of Greek Club Cyberpunk Printed Circuit Board
This is the part where it gets more interesting. Greek Club is currently offering 5 models for the Cyberpunk PCB series. Here are the models on offer right now.
3RT Cyber Copter
This machine is a support chopper-style robot that carries out recon missions and supports ground units. It has been developed on the model of the great Apache helicopter. So wear your flying kit and hit the cockpit!
This machine has a special camouflage option so you can build the PCBs either way and have an option for red or silver copter. Largely depends on the terrain of operation.
MAT002 Wipe Racer
Racing against time and gravity. That’s the motto of MAT002 Wipe Racer. This futuristic machine has a design for carrying out recon in operational areas and delivering a payload when you need to.
This machine has a stealth design. As a result, this means this machine goes undetected on enemy radars. Perfectly designed for hot zones where the heavy battle is on.
W4 Scout Recon
The W4 Scout Recon is truly something of the future. Complex design, advanced travel modes and a lot more that is waiting for you to be discovered is all that embodies the W4 Scout Recon. This futuristic machine has been designed to gather intel and scout the path as the major forces are about to make an advance. But be ready as not everyone can handle the complex and daring requirements of the Scout Recon.
Build for stealth missions.
Ant001 Hexapod Tank
Three legs are what you need to make a machine stable on the ground. However, this 6 legged machine of Greek Club Cyberpunk PCB has twice the stability that any normal machine would have. This machine is the first line of attack and can take substantial damage before giving up. Subsequently, it can deal heavy damage to the enemy units and keep them at bay while your arsenal biggies take charge.
You can flip the PCB to either choose from Black or Silver color for your tank. It all depends on the terrain of battle and your choice.
MXC Two Legs Heavy Sniper
Crouching like a tiger in the wild, they build this sniper machine to provide remote support to advancing machine units. With a two-legged base that provides mobility and flexibility, this machine can blend into the surroundings and can take out critical units of the enemy while going undetected. Furthermore, the two legs provide a safe passage through the heavily mined enemy land that has many booby-traps. Its aim it lethal, so enemy, beware of this two-legged monster.
What do you get with the Greek Club Cyberpunk PCB
So now we get down to the builders’ fantasy club. Greek Club Cyberpunk PCB is offering a lot to you with the basic models. These items will not only help you in assembling the machine, but will also make it look like a bad-ass machine that means business. So here is a list of additional components that you will get with the basic model:
Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are the indicator lights that you see on all types of electronic items. These lights will bring your machine to life. Furthermore, these LEDs will show the functioning of your machine.
CR2032 Battery Holder
This is where the Greek Club Cyberpunk PCBs get their power from. The power hub of your machines.
SMD LED 0805
The SMD LEDs are really cool indicators that are embed into the PCBs and provide color-coding to the machine’s outputs. (These are what really make the cyberpunk models cool).
For a few machines (MAT002 and ANT001), you will be needing the resistors to add to the flexibility in LED colors and frequency of blinking. Therefore, just by adding a few things to the machine, it will become more amazing.
Greek Club is also offering a sophisticated toolkit with the model. This toolkit has basic items like Solder Iron (and its associated tools), Pliers, Tweezers, protective glasses, and a magnifying lens.
You shouldn’t worry about having difficulty in building the model, as the Model and kit will come with a comprehensive instruction manual that will guide you. You will have an instructional video on YouTube that will guide you with the building of models.
Kickstarter Campaign for Greek Club Cyberpunk PCB
Greek Club is currently running a Kickstarter campaign for the project. As amazing as the project seems, people have invested in the idea. As of now, $ 54,480 has been raised against a pledged amount of £46,331, with 11 days still to go. This DIY Legos of the future kit has some promising results for the future. As a result, we at Inov3D believe that this concept from the Greek Club will not only impress the kids out there, but we will see other themed machines rolling out soon.
So folks now is the time to jump the bandwagon and make a difference for these toys of the future.
