Digital learning has to be fun and exciting if it has to be taught to children. Korean Edtech startup CUBROID has developed a cute and compact AI Coding Robot named ARTIBO that makes coding exciting and fun. So, if you want your children to learn the digital skills needed for the 21st-century, check out ARTIBO.
An AI Robot that teaches digital skills to children
Established in 2017, CUBROID is a global AI and robotics learning company. CUBROID designs and manufactures smart AI robots and coding blocks specially designed for children. ARTIBO is an AI (Artificial Intelligence) coding block, powered by up-to-date tech and is cute, chirpy, and funny.
ARTIBO is small enough to fit into a pocket, has a camera for eyes, a speaker for the mouth, a microphone for ears. ARTIBO’s applications are limitless. It moves from one place to another at kid’s coding, plays sound and music of various moods, and expresses emotion. ARTIBO can connect to the Internet or a smartphone and is an excellent option for kids age ten years and above.
ARTIBO comes to life when it is connected to the brain of the children. STEAM system of ARTIBO fuels creativity and imagination. The elements of ARTIBO like image & voice recognition, physical computing, STEAM, smart device coding teaches various things like a creative framework between software & hardware, problem-solving, logical reasoning, coding and controlling wirelessly, etc.
Learn languages, take pictures, express emotions.
ARTIBO can shoot digital images with a built-in camera and identify the image and/or text, detect face & compare faces, and recognize celebrities readily. With a simple line of codes, ARTIBO performs advanced actions like changing your voice into letters, translating and reading messages. ARTIBO can speak in 13 languages and express various emotions.
ARTIBO comes with an AI block, a motor block, a connector block and silicon wheels. The AI block houses the LED screen, camera, speaker, and microphone. The user can separate the AI block and put it aside while another works. It is simple to start with ARTIBO by downloading the ARTIBO Manager app from the App/Play Store and registering the device.
Coding made more straightforward and accessible
Along with ARTIBIO, CUBROID has made coding easily accessible with easy-to-use and straightforward coding platforms and apps for smartphones, tablets, and PCs.
1) Scratch Block (Simplified Computational Coding)
Artibo’s block coding platform has similar features with Scratch. It is intuitive and easy for everyone to code using the drag-and-drop block system function.
2) Python (Text Coding)
Python programming with Artibo is available for advanced youngsters who want to take their programming skills to the next level.
ARTIBO can be a great friend for children as it helps them develop skills needed to make them future-ready. Apart from the coding skills, ARTIBO teaches cognitive life skills like problem solving, creativity, logical thinking, and gives a sense of accomplishment. Priced at $399, ARTIBO is a great deal for a futuristic education skill.
CUBROID Coding Blocks
The company also offers coding block sets that allow children to explore the robotics world and gain coding exposure. The use of dynamic & wireless connector blocks and simple coding platforms offers a fun and educational experience for children to express their creativity.
The blocks are fun for children as they are compatible with Lego blocks and has smartphone coding and control mode. The CUBROID coding blocks help kids understand the relationship between hardware and software, develops problem-solving skills, logical reasoning, collaboration, and creativity skills through science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Children can make interesting shapes and forms like camera, robot, helicopter, dinosaur, etc. using the coding blocks and enjoy controlling and operating those creations. The CUBROID Phone Coding App can be downloaded from the App/Play store for controlling the assembled blocks. CUBROID also has an advanced Tablet App version. CUBROID can be operated through the Scratch programming platform when the master block is connected to a PC with a USB cable.
CUBROID coding block sets are available in four different versions. There is a CUBROID Coding Blocks Entry Kit priced at $199, CUBROID Coding Blocks Starter Kit at $299, CUBROID Coding Blocks Premium Kit at $399, and CUBROID Coding Blocks Premium kit with four workbooks priced at $450.
The idea of CUBROID was born when the CEO Mark Shin wanted to create an easy to assemble & code square-shaped robots using the concept of Arduino but in a shape of a box (cube) as a gift for his three daughters so they can learn not only how to assemble and code robots but also see their imaginations come to life. Mark Shin has a strong passion and background in Educational Technology, Robotics, AI, and Future Education, has developed over 100 apps for early childhood education.
CUBROID is an establishment of a selection of TIPS programs in 2017 and a US corporation. CUBROID’s products are specially designed to introduce children from age five years and above to the concept of coding, engineering and Artificial Intelligence. It was selected for the first Penguin of the Credit Guarantee Fund in 2018. In 2020, the company launched ARTIBO and as of 2020 over 46 countries are exporting CUBROID’s coding blocks and it is used in more than 10,000 schools. CUBROID aims to provide the most uncomplicated computing and robotics education through STEAM. The company wants that children all over the world enjoy assembling, coding and playing with robots through the use of its products and services.
