Robo Wunderkind: a programmable robot for kids of all ages, on Kickstarter
Educational robotics is a charming developing trend. Especially now, with so many initiative taken by parents, professionals, teachers ad makers to bring software sciences and applied robotics into primary schools, to have children learning scientific concept at a really early stage.
Our friends at Startrobo just launched a Kickstarter campaign for their new Robo Wunderkind project:
It is a robotics and coding kit for kids of all ages. Modular, colorful and Lego compatible, Build, code, play, create the future!
Robo Wunderkind is for all kids aged 5 to infinity and beyond ;)
Our app’s visual programming interface is super intuitive: kids with no previous exposure to coding will easily figure out how to program in our app.
Kids can program the robot they have built to:
- drive around while avoiding obstacles
- play a recorded sound when somebody enters the room
- react to claps and other noises
- play music when somebody picks it up
- record and play voice messages
- hide from or follow sources of light
- solve mazes
- surprise parents with a weather forecast
- set off on a treasure hunt using its digital camera
- blink when the lights are turned off
- …and much, much more!
There are no limits to your child’s imagination and we are working with educational experts in the field to build a library of different learning adventures for Robo Wunderkind.
The system is modular and you can start backing Startrobo by pledging one if their kits, according to your needs and initial project idea.
And, more interesting: the team has been selected to take part to TechCrunch The Startup Battlefield Of Disrupt SF 2015. Good luck!
