TacoBot stackable coding robot brings kids a simple and intuitive way to learn coding. Like the idea? Let’s continue checking.
The TacoBot is an advanced and pretty fun smart robot toy that consists of multiple stackable units including five interchangeable hats, an intelligent brain, mobile body and movement base. When assembled together, the robot measures 117 x 90 x 147mm. With four bright colors and compact form factor, the TacoBot delivers a cute and vivid appearance design that catches every kid’s eye.
The five interchangeable hats come equipped with different sensors respectively including tracking sensor, ultrasonic sensor, button, infrared sensor, and sound. Using these stackable hats, you can easily bring various features to the robot. For instance, the tracking hat allows the robot to track and patrol lines and avoid falling, the sound hat allows it to detect sounds and react to it, and the button hat allows kids to program the movement of the robot by the 7 buttons on the hat.
Furthermore, the arms and head are movable, and built-in Bluetooth connectivity keeps it wirelessly connecting with your smartphone so that you can use its companion app to remotely control the robot. More importantly, using the app, the TacoBot can be programmed via simply connecting coding blocks on its graphical programming interface, so it’s ideal to help kids 4+ learn STEM skills and cultivate critical thinking. In addition, it supports 30+ games and works as a Bluetooth speaker that broadcasts music and stories.
The team behind TacoBot is raising fund for the product on Kickstarter. We can pledge $47 to preorder the stackable coding robot for kids. It will be shipped in January 2019.
