Cozmo, Ohbot go to Code Club

Image
I have recently taken two robots to a Code Club, here a couple of reflections/observations.


Cozmo
This robot produced by Anki is incredibly cute - a cross between Wall-E and a pet in some respects.

The code below was produced by the 'Code-Clubbers' and gets Cozmo to speak move around and operate its forks at the front. Anecdotally, someone was trying to work on something but couldn't resist coming and having another look at what it was doing.







Ohbot






Ohbot provided a different opportunity to play with a robot, getting to move the mouth, speak and track faces. My first impression was some of the children were a bit wary, until they found out they could control what it says and that seemed to break the ice.
