Want To Teach Your Kids Programming | Get Kubo
One of the awesome robots displayed at CES: Kubo is now available. What’s Kubo?
Kubo is a robot that teaches kids how to code. – it’s about the size of a can of soda and has two wheels that allow it to roll around a desk or table. But what it lacks in advanced physical ability it makes up for in brains.
Kubo has it’s own programming language, Tagtile.
It’s a game like programming software. Tagtile consists of puzzle pieces that fit together to give Kubo instructions.
For example, you could connect three pieces together – forward, turn, then another forward. Kubo then drives over these pieces once to “learn” the command, then can remember and perform it without needing the pieces.
