There are hundreds of programming apps which could help our kid learn programming in an early age, but there is a new toy in the town which beats everything. Meet Codie, a robotic toy which is controlled by a smartphone app that lets kids learn programming.
Codie is a small and cute little robot, which has wheels underneath. It can be controlled via iOS and Android app. Codie has around 7 sensors in its hardware, including sensors for temperature, movement, line tracking sound, ultrasound, touch. It makes a direct connection with your smartphone via Bluetooth technology.
The best part of Codie is that it lets the kid try out different programming moves on the interface full of colors. One can use different programming concepts on the interface of Codie, issue commands, set If-Else programming conditions by using lines and wires using the touch screen. The companion bot will interpret these instructions and move along the path accordingly. Thus, the kid will learn the impact of programming instructions on the end result.
