OSMO Coding [video]

I took a little time off to collect my thoughts, but now I’m back. 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 somewhere on the floor at the office. Note to self: Always pay extra attention when handling such a small card and put it away safely. (more…)

Robot Cubetto arrived! – Coding for kids 3+

We finally got to unbox and try out Cubetto! Cubetto is a little wooden robot that teaches kids to code without using a display.

Yes! I found another fantastic robot for kids from the age of 5. It’s still a Kickstarter project, but inside I glow with excitement when I see this. [update 17 November 2017: Robot Wunderkind has sadly delayed again. It’s expected halfway in 2018. I really like Robo, but because of this delay, I had to cancel my order.
