Details

A bridge between technology and family game night, Ozobot encourages kids to play and interact. Kids code Ozobot’s movements by drawing color-coded lines on a tablet or on plain old white paper. Put Ozobot on the lines and he’ll do what the code says.

  • Materials: Polycarbonate (PC) outer shell, Delrin Acetal (POM) housing, TPU protective skin
  • Care: Periodically roll the Ozbot's wheels several times on a clean white paper to maintain proper function and operational longevity
  • Combining robotics and gaming, Ozobot uses a color-based code language to navigate seamlessly from tablet to paper
  • DIY programming introduces kids to code language, robotic behavior, and deductive reasoning while having fun
  • Rechargeable LiPo battery; USB charging cable included (takes about 35 minutes to fully charge)
  • Download games on the Ozobot App for free for iOS (via the App store) and Android (via Google Play). The App is optimized for screen sizes exceeding 9" to interact with your Ozobot
  • For customized maps and mazes, Sharpie or Crayola markers (in red, light blue, light green, and black) are suggested. Lines must be 1/4" thick for Ozobot to read
  • Visual feedback with Multicolor LED lighting
  • Chill or Thrill speeds using Dual MicroMotors
  • Autonomous Cruising via Precision Line-Sensing and instant Surface recognition
  • Downloadable color code reference chart
  • Made in China
  • Dimensions: 1" x 1" x 1"
  • Weight: 0.03 lb.

Stimulating toy

Great toy for all ages of kids and grown ups. The product picture is deceiving because it shows 2 robots. But you get only one robot and that was disappointment for me because I have two grand sons and thought both would one to try different things.More > < Less

8 yr. old grandson: BEST PRESENT EVER!

by

Wasn’t sure if 8 year old would be too young, but WOW! I was THE most popular Gramma ever! He spent an hour and had to go out and came right back to learn more! Had to FaceTime me to show how it works!
He has struggled with reversals and writing, and I believe this will excite him enough to read more and be excited about the science, technology side of it all! He can’t wait to learn more, and when he learned it could DANCE to his favorite music

Ozobot - Color-sensing Robot

About Ozobot

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.
