CUBROID, a Korean EdTech Startup, announced that it developed two products to make coding fun and exciting, the CUBROID Coding Blocks and the AI Coding Robot ARTIBO. The company aims to enhance the future generations’ creative learning and coding language, as well as boost their performance in all subjects, especially in this digital era.
Established in 2017, the startup designs and manufactures smart AI robots and coding blocks for children. A US corporation and a variety of TIPS programs make up the CUBROID Edtech Startup. The company currently introduced two types of products: the CUBROID Coding Blocks and ARTIBO, the AI Coding Block.
CUBROID Coding Blocks
The CUBROID Coding Blocks enable children to study robotics and acquire early exposure to coding. The coding blocks include a smartphone coding and control mode, which works compatibly with Lego blocks.
The coding blocks assist kids in learning the difference between hardware and software. Children could enhance their creativity while exploring the world of robotics. They could also develop mathematics, technology, engineering, and problem-solving and logical reasoning skills.
Children could create, operate, and control exciting forms and shapes using the CUBROID Phone Coding App available in the App Store and Play Store. The CUBROID also includes an advanced Tablet App version operating through the Scratch programming platform. A USB cable connects the master block to a PC.
The coding block sets have four variations: the CUBROID Coding Blocks Entry Kit, Starter Kit, Premium Kit, and Premium kit with four workbooks. The four kits have prices that range from $199, $299, $399, and $450, respectively.
ARTIBO AI Coding Block
The AI Coding robot block named ARTIBO contains a camera, a speaker, and a microphone. The ARTIBO includes a wide range of applications such as moving from one place to another, playing of sounds and music, and expressing emotions. It also consists of image and voice recognition, physical computing and problem solving, logical reasoning, STEAM, and smart device coding.
ARTIBO could connect to the internet or a smartphone and suit kids ten years and above.
The ARTIBO includes a motor block, an AI block, a connector block, and silicon wheels. The AI block, which users could separate and replace, contains the camera, LED screen, microphone, and speaker. The ARTIBO Manager App available at the App/ Play Store makes it simple and easy to operate.
The ARTIBO AI block could become a great companion and a friend for children. It also serves as an excellent educational tool. The AI block could help them learn and develop skills like logical thinking, creativity, and problem solving needed for the future. The ARTIBO comes for $399 per unit.
Along with ARTIBIO, CUBROID has made coding easily accessible with easy-to-use and straightforward coding platforms and apps for smartphones, tablets, and PCs.
Scratch Block & Python
ARTIBO block coding platform has similar features with Scratch. It is intuitive and easy for everyone to code using the drag-and-drop block system function. For advanced learners who want to take their programming skills to the next level, Python programming is an excellent addition with ARTIBO
