We can see that the share of educational robots offered for financing on crowdfunding platforms is as high as that of toy robots. Two categories that seem to be causing a stir and I'm going to talk to you here about a new educational robot that has already been funded up to $100,000 on Kickstarter. There are still 31 days left for the project to go further and allow manufacturers to add many new features later.

Some of the educational robots we offer on Robot Advance, such as the Lego Education Wedo 2.0, are more difficult for some parents to learn and therefore more dedicated to use in school. They allow the creation of relevant courses to teach children to develop certain skills.
This is not the case with the Codey Rocky robot, which is a small robot that children can have at home and with which they can learn or have fun in total autonomy. An advantage for parents who also like to take time for themselves while the children are having fun alone or with each other.
Codey Rocky is a new robot that will certainly make its appearance in Europe in 2018. Just like other new products presented here (Kubo robot, Woobo plush or robopal), it is a robot at an affordable price that allows children to learn STEM (Science, Technology, Electronics and Mathematics) from the age of 6. The objective of this educational robot is to teach children:
The robot is actually delivered in two parts:
This robot, half toy and half educational, will allow children to work on different things:
All this while having fun, which is what makes these new models of educational robots so successful.
We have already introduced the new Makeblock robots, I invite you to take a look at the page again to learn more about their programming language. This Codey Rocky robot will be based on the mBlock 5 program (based on scratch 3.0 and succeeding mBlock 3 based on scratch 2.0). A fun software, simple to use and above all easy to learn for beginners.
This programming language can be used on MacBook, ChromeBook or PC and offers you to get to the heart of the matter very simply to set up your first programs.
For older children who already have advanced coding basics, it is possible to transform the graphical user interface into Python (Lines of code) and connect to the Internet. New possibilities offered since you will be able to control your house, obtain automatic weather reports or even use Codey Rocky as a speaker for your playlists: everything depends on your imagination.
It is interesting to note that the different programs created can be easily transferred to your Codey Rocky robot using Wifi.
The components of this educational robot are similar to those seen on other models presented in this robotics news section that allow Codey Rocky to interact with the external environment.
We can thus find on the Codey part of the robot:
The Rocky part of the robot contains when it is:
For those who want to know more, I invite you to go directly to the Kickstarter page of the project. This will keep you informed of the production, final price and availability of the Codey Rocky educational robot in Europe. The announced indicative price is currently $64, including Bluetooth module.
Finally, here is the video presentation of the robot by their creators.
