4 years & up. Program your Root robot to be responsive to touch, light, color and sound. You can code your Root to draw, erase, climb whiteboards, play music and more. This robot has 3 levels of play from beginner to advanced to offer many years of coding fun. Includes: Root robot, charging cable, 2 dry erase markers, dry erase cloth, set of vinyl cling stickers, fold out whiteboard, and App (compatible with iOS). Measures 5.2" x 5.8" x 1.7".
Makes a mark. Root draws by lifting and dropping any marker or pen. Just add code and Root brings your creativity to life.
All the feels. Root sees light, hears sound, senses drop-offs, feels a bump, and detects your touch.
Expresses itself. Through drawing, music, and movement, Root brings coding into the physical world, so it isn't just a concept, it's a reality.
Learn-to-code. Through guided lessons and projects, children and adults alike can learn the fundamentals of coding and explore more advanced concepts as their skill increases.
Games & Challenges. Built-in games, art projects, and logic challenges pack hours of fun for any interest.
Intuitive Coding Interface. Root is the only companion that grows with a child by seamlessly switching the coding interface from graphical blocks for non-readers to full text for advanced coders.
Level 1: Graphical Coding. Graphical blocks teach essential logic skills of coding. Children problem solve with Root with real code by drawing, playing music, and making games. Ideal for ages 4 and up.
Level 2: Block Coding. Level 2 gives children more control of the code with a more detailed interface. The hybrid drag and drop language builds computational fluency. Ideal for ages 7 and up.
Level 3: Full Text Coding. Advancing to Level 3 allows you to solve problems and learn the syntax and structure of professional coding languages in Swift. Ideal for ages 12 and up.
Battery: 2600 mAh Li-ion Rechargeable - around a week of play per charge (~3 h continuous driving)
Wireless: Bluetooth Low Energy (30+ m range)
Root is currently compatible with iPhone and iPad only running iOS 10 or later
