OSMO Coding [video]

I’m back from a little time off to collect my thoughts, so let’s pick it up where I left it. I was in the middle of editing my OSMO Coding video when I lost my SD card. Long story short, luckily I had saved the OSMO footage before I foolishly dropped my card on the floor at the office somewhere.

Yes! I found another fantastic robot for kids ages 5 and up. It’s still a Kickstarter project, but I glow inside of excitement when I see this. It already made onto my wishlist! [update 31 oktober] I’ve ordered the Robo Wunderkind pro kit. I expect it to arrive May 2017! WOOP! [update 17 November 2017] Robot Wunderkind has sadly delayed again. It’s expected halfway in 2018. I really like Robo but because if this delay I had to cancel my order because I need the money to invest in The Robotvilla kids studio on wheels. Maybe, when Robo is available, I’ll reconsider buying it. (more…)
