Ozobot

Maker - Nader Hamda

Ozobot

Maker Story

Color Commands

Today, when kids play with technology it’s usually a solo endeavor. (Read = antisocial.) That’s the problem Maker Nader Hamda noticed watching his two daughters. They were both playing a popular mobile game, each confined to her own screen.

Nader was inspired to create Ozobot, a toy that infuses technology with the social aspects of family game night. And he made it educational, too.

This tiny robot reads colors and responds with different movements. Ozobot will follow the instructions you create. Make it advance, retreat, spin, speed up, dance and more. It can learn hundreds of different commands.

With the included app, kids draw colored lines on a tablet for Ozobot to obey. But Ozobot works on plain old paper, too. Use fat markers to tell it exactly what to do.

As they’re teaching Ozobot to obey, kids are actually being taught. They’ll learn logic and basic coding skills as they decipher how to direct its moves. And best of all, this toy encourages kids to interact with other real-life members of the family.
