Blocks, Coding, Action! The Robo Coding Saga is Launched

Robo Wunderkind has recently launched a new Kickstarter campaign for their new Robo Coding Saga robotic toys. Packed with coding challenges, the new kit lets kids code along while making cool fun projects. From smart lamps to robots, kids get creative while learning basic computer coding concepts. The app uses Blockly, a visual programming language, which makes it easy to figure out how to make your robot move forward and back, and add in fun stuff like lights and sounds.

If you haven’t heard of the Robo Wunderkind robots, they are worth checking out. It’s a similar idea to littleBits and Cubelets, where kids build modular robots from blocks, and each block performs a specific task. One of its unique features is that it’s compatible with LEGO bricks, Horrray! Now kids have a new way to bring their lego to life. Robo Wunderkind is doing a great job of helping kids learn, by introducing new coding concepts, while still feeling familiar with the toys they already own.

Personally, what I love about these smart coding blocks is their size. You can hold them in your hand and aren’t afraid when they drop (as kids inevitable drop everything). The company has learned a lot from their first robot release, so I’ll be excited to test out the new Saga blocks and app when released.

Yuri Levin, Co-founder of Robo Wunderkind said:

“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”
