Plobot a team of developers based in Los Angeles have created a new robot companion for children called Plobot. Which has been specifically designed to help children over the age of four, learn coding through storytelling and physical play.
The new educational coding robot has no screens and has this week launched via Kickstarter looking to raise the $35,000 it requires to go into production. Watch the promotional video below to learn more about Plobot and its features design to help children code.
Plobot is a fun, educational robot that teaches young learners coding concepts without all the messy syntax – and without any need for computer screens. They’ll learn about algorithms, loops, conditionals, and more, all while having a blast with their favorite new toy!
Plobot helps kids discover coding concepts through physical play. No Screens, all fun! Easily tell Plobot what to do – just tap our Command Cards to code algorithms, loops, conditionals, & more! With Plobot, we wanted to answer a crucial question: how do we get kids excited to learn about something as abstract as programming? We aimed to create a fun, effortless introduction to coding that promotes productive playtime away from computer screens. That led to Plobot – a happy little robot that can move, sing, dance and entertain with a few simple commands.
