Ozobot Smart Robotic Game Piece
A miniature robot (it measures just over one inch in diameter and height), this toy provides hours of entertainment while fostering an understanding of science and robotics. Introduce the kids (suitable for ages six and up) to the concept behind coding with easy-to-understand colors by printing out or drawing lines using a thick red, green, blue or black marker (or download the app to use preprogrammed paths, games, challenges, and activities). Then watch as this compact gadget, which won “best robot” at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show, follows your design. It can memorize and play back up to 500 moves.
