Play-i Robots Teach Computer Programming to Children

( Play-i’s mission is to make computer programming accessible to every child. Play-i has introduced delightful toy-appearing robots that fuse play with programming for kids of all ages. The robots are programmed and controlled by the child with a touch interface.

There are two basic robots. Bo is the first, and he is called an “explorer.” Yana, the second, is described as a “storyteller.” There are any number of extensions available for Bo and Yana. There is even a SmartPhone mount and capability to synchronize a SmartPhone with the robots.
