It’s tough to teach kids, especially autistic kids. They need special attention. Now a robot toy known as Popchilla might be able to help. This robotic stuffed animal named Popchilla will be connected to an app called Popchilla’s World, and the app will run on a mobile device. It’s a cute animal and kids should love it.
It is capable of moving around and displaying various facial expressions. The app also features a game that will reward children who pick the right answer.
It looks like they have the toy basically finished, but the next step is a half year study at Carnegie Mellon University to determine how effective it might be. It will be interesting to see how well it does.
