Robo Wunderkind has been unveiled at The Robo Coding Saga in Vienna. This new range of robotic toys intends to harness the imaginations and natural curiosities of children. The target audience is children ranging from age five and beyond. Children would get to learn robotics and coding in a totally playful and versatile manner. It brings forth challenges and interactive stories to make kids learn and be productive during playtime.
This new avenue from Robo Wunderkind works on the legacy of its already existing feature-packed robotic and coding toys. These have thrilling challenges and fun stories for children. These can be used to follow along learning how to build anything from a smart lamp to a fully-fledged Android robot using code to get them to come to life.
Yuri Levin, Co-founder of Robo Wunderkind states “Since we shipped our first-generation, we have learned so much about how children play and use robots at home and in a school environment. With the new version, we are taking playtime and education to the next level, bringing the power of storytelling and the creative community spirit to modular robotics. The robot grows and evolves as the child does while learning essential coding and robotics skills, mastering block by block.”
The Robo Wunderkind app
The Robo Wunderkind app brings new challenges for the little ones as it sees them follow along through the community tab. Children also have the liberty to create their own personalized projects. These projects can also be shared with the Robo Wunderkind community. For progressive learning, the app features three different levels of programming complexity.
How kids can benefit
Children will get to learn the basics of computer science including loops, parallel processing, command sequencing, conditional logic, inputs/outputs, and much more. This will take place throughout their journeys while building a functional robot made up of large tactile colour-coded blocks.
Moroever, children have the freedom and liberty to bring their own imagination and creativity into action. They can also accessorize their Robo Wunderkind creations as it is compatible with LEGO blocks, meaning the current box of toys integrates seamlessly.
Robo Wunderkind also accommodates families. With its integration with Python and Arduino APIs, all of its potentials is unlocked and with full capabilities of the kit. This brings forth modern and complex features for kids and parents alike, meaning the possibilities are truly endless as Robo Wunderkind robotics kit continues to adapt as your child grows up.
Anna Iarotska, Co-founder of Robo Wunderkind adds: “Using the imagination and curiosity of children, we introduce coding in a playful and versatile way into their lives. Family members will have fun in the process too, by either joining in and enjoying the magic of creating their own toys and stories together or just see what their child is capable of creating using their wonderful imagination and our smart building blocks”.
