ROBOPAL: Build STEM Skills. Build Robots. Have Fun
ROBOPAL: Build STEM Skills. Build Robots. Have Fun

This project has already launched.


 

Meet ROBOPAL, the world’s first programmable learning robot and magnetic coding block maker system. Using magnetic coding blocks as its programming language, ROBOPAL turns complex coding languages into fun, hands-on games. Just combine the magnetic coding blocks to create commands for the robot and transform it into anything that you can imagine!

 

Most of all, ROBOPAL stimulates a child’s creativity and imagination, inspiring them to have fun while learning new, vital skills for their future through kid-friendly robotics.

 

As we pivot towards a tech-driven economy, the importance of children developing a strong foundation in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) has never been bigger. Parents with dreams of raising future high-tech innovators are eager to teach youngsters programming and coding concepts, but they can often reach a roadblock with hard-to-grasp concepts and boring texts. It’s actually never too early to introduce kids to the fundamentals of coding – you just need to make it fun!

That’s where ROBOPAL comes in, teaching kids the basics of coding and programming in a fun new way.

ROBOPAL teaches youngsters the following life skills and coding concepts:

• Problem solving

• Critical thinking

• Analytical thinking

• If-then logic

• Working collaboratively with others

• Spatial concepts

By playing with the ROBOPAL learning robot and exploring its limitless possibilities, children are encouraged to construct, engineer, and experiment. It puts kids’ analytical abilities and problem-solving skills to healthy use without a tablet or an app — teaching them new coding and critical thinking skills in the process.

There are three types of coding blocks that come with ROBOPAL, representing the types of commands ROBOPAL will understand:

  • Action blocks

For specific movements such as moving forward or backward.

  • Function blocks

For sound, time commands, and accessory control.

  • Logic blocks

With fundamental coding statements such as loop, if, then, and or To use the ROBOPAL, kids will choose and combine the magnetic coding blocks to build a program, connect the blocks to the robot, and press start to run the program.

 

 ROBOPAL teaches kids the following coding concepts:

  • Sequential Statements:
To control their ROBOPAL, kids will create action sequences for it to follow. 
  • Debugging and Critical Thinking:
If ROBOPAL doesn’t reach its objective after kids input a command, they can retrace their steps to figure out what needs to be fixed. 
  • Loops:
Kids will learn that in order to get certain outcomes, they’ll need to reuse certain code sequences and be efficient with their blocks. 
  • Efficient Coding:
Effective coding relies on efficiency. Using ROBOPAL’s blocks, kids learn to minimize repetition and maximize their code’s output. 
  • Conditional Statements:
Kids will be introduced to If-Then statements quite simply - if ROBOPAL runs up against an obstacle, it will then need to move in another direction. 
  • Nesting Statement:
As kids progress, they’ll learn to add conditional statements inside loops to help them add different elements and form new commands.

ROBOPAL features 10 USB ports for expandability, so kids will never get bored. From LED lights and fans to additional sensors (for things like obstacle avoidance and route navigation),  ROBOPAL is infinitely expandable to allow your kids’ new coding concepts to be applied however their imagination desires.

ROBOPAL is even compatible with LEGO, so your existing toys will integrate seamlessly with ROBOPAL to combine for even more entertainment. Want to turn ROBOPAL into a spaceship? A helicopter? A submarine carrying your kids’ favorite LEGO characters? No problem. ROBOPAL enhances the playtime experience, all while teaching kids the fundamentals of coding. 

 

 

 

 

With 14 different digital facial expressions and 15 different voices, ROBOPAL will entertain the whole family – a fun robot playmate for your kids that brings a smile to parents faces, too.

Stuck on where to go? ROBOPAL’s online video,tutorials and story books will teach kids coding concepts and entertain no matter what their skill level.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • No need to install 

ROBOPAL is ready to go out of the box with no assembly required.

  • Making with Magnets 

ROBOPAL is instructed by magnetic coding blocks. They are easy to assemble and disassemble without the need for tools. 

  • Loop 

ROBOPAL will loop until the next coding is built. 

  • No battery needed 

USB charging allows ROBOPAL to keep playing with your child for 6-12 hours, making it more convenient for kids to use. 

  • Play it anywhere anytime 

Your child can carry ROBOPAL everywhere, from home to school, or from your bedroom to the living room.

 ROBOPAL’s friendly, round shape and engaging green color are just a part of the kid-friendly design that won it “Best Educational Toy” at the prestigious Red Dot Awards in Germany. Even the blocks were carefully designed with colorful features and a rounded octagon shape with no hard edges, letting the technology feel great in kids’ hands. Rather than complicated, breakable attachment methods, the ROBOPAL coding blocks use magnets that lock them together with a satisfying click.

 

  

 

More creative are coming

For now, we're focused on completing ROBOPAL and getting it out as fast as possible, also we would research for more ways to play and learn. Our goal is to make ROBOPAL a platform for kids to learn logic while building up their creativity. Our next generation product will come with remote control and wireless blocks programming.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We at ROBOPAL believe, like many leading educators and influencers, that STEM skills will be crucial to our kids’ futures. As parents ourselves, we thought it was vital that kids be given the chance to experience programming without roadblocks like boredom or difficult concepts. We know how hard it is to get started on something that seems difficult on the surface, but we know how important these skills will be to our children. So ROBOPAL was born.
 

For the massive undertaking of creating the ROBOPAL, we partnered with world-famous robotics engineers Ecovacs Robotics. Founded in 1998, Ecovacs has since launched award-winning home utility bots DEEBOT, a floor cleaning robot, ATMOBOT, an air purifying robot, and WINBOT, a window cleaning robot, to become one of the top three in-home robotics companies worldwide. It’s since expanded operations from China to the US, Germany, and Japan, and even collaborated with Marvel Entertainment for limited-edition Captain America-themed Deebots.

Together, we strive to give kids a fun, engaging way to embark on a journey building skills that will help them throughout their adult lives. With your help, we can make that dream a reality!
