Ozobot – How It Works?

The tiny robot was designed by Evolve, an electronics company and by playing with it, kids will be able to expand their imagination, learn simple coding and learn essential life skills like deductive reasoning.

To play with the bot, kids have to follow a path backwards, forward, right or left; they can also move fast or slow by using four colors- green, red, blue and black. With the advanced technology in use, the robot is able to move on physical surfaces like paper and also on digital platforms like tablets or smartphones. Ozobot will be able to move as per the command of the pattern of colors or only on one color, as long as there are digital flash codes or colored lines of blue, green, red or black.

With the layer of augmented reality, the robot is able to “see” colored lines and find the difference between them. Certain combination of the colors is recognized by it as a code and based on that the action takes place. The Ozobot is available at a price of $49.99 and is suitable for kids above 13 years of age.
