    Ozobots - tiny robots with BIG brains!

    What is Ozobot? Here, let Ozobot explain: (He doesn’t talk, but he types well!) 

    Hi, I’m Ozobot - Your Game Piece with Brains. I provide kids and techies an expressive way to learn and play with robotics in a variety of social and interactive settings. I come to life when you create mazes, tracks and playgrounds on paper, game boards and digital screens. I also come with free downloadable apps and become your physical avatar for some truly one of a kind augmented reality games. I teach you code language, robotic behavior and deductive reasoning while effortlessly playing on multi-dimensional environments. Expand your imagination and gain skills for life through my ability to play creative, strategic and competitive games with you. --- (And now back to The Giz Wiz) – But wait there’s more! OzoGroove, the newest app, proves that robots can glide and dance with grace. No more “Robot” dance moves! Download the free App from Google Play or the iTunes Store and cue your favorite music. Then code Ozobot to perform a Waltz, do the Tango, or whatever you dream up! Over time users can master their skills and create uber cool moves within the app’s PRO editor option. $99 for a pack of two, or $49 for one Ozobot. And they’re small enough to stash in a purse or backpack (or pocket) for on-the-go fun. (But keep them away from the dog. They’re not that kind of toy!)
