Interactive robot designed to teach new languages to young children to be produced after its successful crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.com
November 6, 2019 – ROYBI today unveiled its plans to make its AI-powered robot—that teaches languages and skills to children—available to the general public, as well as put it into mass production.
All parents want a bright future for their children. However, with the growing requirements of the modern age, kindergartens and schools do not always succeed in this mission of giving them the specific skills needed in an uncertain future.
The current education system treats all children the same way, often failing to take into account the abilities, skills and interests of an individual child. Children don’t always have the opportunity to practice the knowledge they learn at school. And when parents are busy, children often become addicted to screens to overcome their boredom. ROYBI has been designed with all these issues in mind.
“As we prepare children to become leaders in a future far different from our own, we at ROYBI feel it is necessary to revise our current educational practices to meet children’s changing needs better,” says Elnaz Sarraf, CEO of ROYBI.
The robot uses over 70,000 words and 500 topics to teach children different languages at their own pace. Thanks to this personalized approach, the robot can also be used by children with speech delay to develop their speaking and give them plenty of practice.
Besides language teaching, ROYBI also introduces children to STEM and primary skills. The AI-powered robot easily adjusts its interactive lessons, games, stories, songs and the rest of its engaging content toa child’s abilities, needs and interests. To make learning even more fun, ROYBI uses a tiny screen on its belly to visualize the taught content and give feedback.
In addition, ROYBI is equipped with facial recognition, which means that it starts socializing with the child once it notices them around and offers them emotional support when needed.
The intuitive app on iOS and Android allows parents to not only customize lessons for their children, but also track their progress.
The robot is powered by a huge digital library of educational materials, which can be constantly updated.
With its long list of unique features, ROYBI is a game changer. It is indeed the next evolutionary step in the field of language learning and education. The robot can be pre-ordered on the campaign’s Indiegogo page with 40% off.

Indiegogo campaign lets early adopters grab TacoBot toys for home or school at best-ever pricing
XIAMEN, FUJIAN, CHINA –There’s a new robot in town, and it’s about to become the hottest tech toy around. That toy is TacoBot. Designed to help children learn to code, this colorful stacking toy was developed by RoboSpace to facilitate STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) education.
RoboSpace has launched an Indiegogo campaign to accelerate the launch of TacoBot, which is sure to become the new “must have” toy for children starting at age four. TacoBot teaches children to code with screen-free or drag-and-drop coding that allows them to build critical thinking and problem-solving skills while they are playing.
With TacoBot, children can simply stack pieces to create their own special robot. Because stacking is the “most intuitive and simplest construction method,” TacoBot enables children to explore, create, and code a variety of robots and then play with them immediately. This stacking method suits both the hands-on capability and comprehension levels of children from very young ages.
The TacoBot was designed to “minimize complication and maximize exploration.” A basic TacoBot includes four body parts with built-in sensors that control separate functionality:
The hat controls perception.
The head controls expression.
The body controls interaction.
The base controls movement.
Once built, the TacoBot gives children instant voice feedback to help them better understand and interact with their toy.
In addition to the basic parts, children can add shovel, plate, and catapult extensions to their TacoBot to expand what their robot can accomplish. With the basic parts and add-ons, children can program their robots with a wide array of functions, from going on patrol, to storytelling, catapulting, and dancing and singing. They can send them into battle or have them clean up toys. TacoBot will even interface with and assemble Legos to create hours of fun. That is to say, one TacoBot quals to a coding robot, a modualr robot, a accompany robot and more.
Two different TacoBot kits will be available for delivery in November. The basic kit includes the programming hat, head, body, base, and a free app. The Happy Kit includes the basic kit along with two additional sensor hats and the shovel, plate, and catapult extensions.
Parents and teachers can visit the TacoBot Indiegogo page right now to pre-order individual or classroom kits and support the toy’s development. Early pricing of the TacoBot through the Indiegogo campaign provides savings of 40% or more:

NEW YORK – Elemental Path, known for its award-winning line of artificial intelligence toys for kids, today launches an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to support its newest product in the CogniToys family, STEMosaur. The STEMosaur is a customizable toy that doubles as a learning companion for children, combining the best elements of the flagship CogniToys Dino, such as the Friendgine, with a more hands-on approach featuring Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) elements, as well as lessons in Coding. The Indiegogo campaign aims to raise $25,000 in 45 days, with the super early bird backer level starting at just $99. To support this campaign, visit https://igg.me/at/stemosaur.
“We launched the Dino in 2015 with a very successful crowdfunding campaign that raised over a quarter-million dollars. In the past two years since, we’ve definitely learned a lot about our users and what they want in a product, and we are using these important lessons to create an even better and more hands-on experience with kids,” said Donald Coolidge, CEO and co-founder of Elemental Path. “This time around with the STEMosaur, we’ll be offering a more interactive and engaging experience – where kids will have the ability to construct the STEMosaur from scratch, carry intelligent conversation, play games and also learn the basics of coding.”
With STEMosaur, kids ages seven and older can construct, code and play. The learning begins with a hands-on exercise that allows children to construct their new friend from a variety of building pieces to bring it to life. Once constructed, the Wi-Fi enabled STEMosaur is immediately capable of holding conversation, telling jokes and playing games that engage the user’s imagination and creativity. This is achieved through Elemental Path’s own Friendgine technology, a cloud-based artificial intelligence software platform that allows the smart toy to hold intelligent conversation with the child and share answers to questions in real time.
In addition, Elemental Path is launching its Coding Panel, an easy-to-use platform that will teach different elements of how to code and allow kids to create their own custom educational content and STEMosaur programming. The Coding Panel may be accessed through a computer or tablet and registers with the individual toy. Such features include coding the STEMosaur to tell unique jokes, share additional stories and play games of the child’s choosing.
“It’s clear that parents want their kids to play with toys that teach something, especially elements of coding and STEM. We see the STEMosaur, and the CogniToys line as a whole, as a way to unlock kids’ creativity and foster their imaginations through intelligent hands-on play,” added Coolidge. “Our goal is for CogniToys to help fuel the next generation of engineers and scientists.”
STEMosaur is also equipped with a Parent Panel so that parents can stay engaged and informed about what their child is learning. The Parent Panel monitors usage patterns and learning progress. It also includes features such as a bedtime setting. Parents can use this platform to contribute directly to the child’s educational experience, programming their own stories, jokes, games and more.
The Indiegogo campaign is now live and running through October 3rd with the goal of raising $25,000. Backer levels range from $99 to $255. There are also two special, higher-priced backer packages – a donation bundle priced at $1,250, where CogniToys will match your product purchase with a donation of 10 STEMosaurs to the school of your choice; and a $2,500 package, where you will receive an engraved STEMosaur and have the opportunity to tour the production facility and enjoy other exclusive perks. The company will ship all STEMosaurs in November for receipt in December 2017, so backers will be able to give the gift of STEMosaur this holiday season.
Making any son or daughter survive everyday is the major goal of any parent. And as we all know, the only way to achieve this is to be on watch 24/7 and even then a lot of accidents happen. This is why a group of engineers and designers have decided to develop a small gadget that will become any family’s best friend. BOBOP
What is BOBOP?
BOBOP is the first smart and social robot specifically designed to help parents take care of their children.
BOBOP is the first product of the WATOTO company, founded in 2016 and leaded by CEO Claudia Linares. The company is focused on designing and developing technological products that will improve the life of parents and children.
“From the beginning we wanted to impact society in a real way, and use technology to make the world a better place. During our university studies we were in a school project exchanging stories and anecdotes, we found that many of our relatives had accidents at home during childhood, some of them potentially fatal, and by researching a little bit about the subject we found that the number of deaths of children from ages 0 to 5 represents 10% of all deaths in the world. Most of these deaths are preventable home accidents. This is why we developed BOBOP, and we think that if BOBOP is able to prevent even one accident, then the whole project is worth it,” said WATOTO CEO Claudia Linares.
BOBOP is able to follow kids and watch them from anywhere, parents can relax and see what they are up to through his integrated HD camera from a smartphone. BOBOP can help kids reach their maximum potential, with the ever-growing number of activities that he can play with kids. These activities are not only fun but are designed to stimulate core aspects of children´s early development.
BOBOP also has the ability to monitor kids‘ health data, such as breathing rate, sleep cycles, temperature and time spent playing together, if something is out of the ordinary BOBOP will send an alarm. BOBOP can configure several alarms that will help remember important moments during the day, such as playtime, eating time, nap time or medicine time.
BOBOP helps to keep your children safe. Thanks to its beacon system you can know if your kids are near a room that it´s not suitable for them.
BOBOP has been slowly gaining some traction on the media. Presenting itself as the first smart and social robot specifically designed to take care of kids.

If you love using drones, then you know there’s nothing more irritating than steering slightly in the wrong direction, and watching your drone fly right into a wall and shatter into pieces. For all the money you put into them, shouldn’t they withstand more than that? Finally the perpetual fear of your drone being destroyed on day 1 through careless steering is a thing of the past.
We are proud to introduce The Droneball, created by iMaze Toys, the people behind Angry Birds and Air Terminators, is the world’s first collision-tolerant drone, and its unique design allows it to simply bounce back from collisions that destroy others.
Created to go the distance, the design of the Drone Ball begins with an exceptionally powerful quadcopter craft with a 6-axis gyroscope, adding a greater level of control compared to most drones on the market. But the big innovation is the cage the surrounds it. This cage, along with its multi-axis running ring track, allows the Droneball to simply bounce off walls and obstacles that wreck other drones. With multi-axis maneuverability, the Droneball remains level inside the cage after a collision, removing the need to regain control and keeping you in the air for as long as you want. No matter where you are or what obstacles you’re navigating through, you don’t need to worry about the copter’s safety with Droneball.
Sharing Made Easy
Droneball brings you 5.8GHZ Transmission technology ultra strong signals are achieved with anti interference capabilities and long distance video image transfer. Droneball’s camera is not only capable of recording stunning 1080p HD video, it can also take high resolution photographs. This allows user to instantly share footage on their smartphones or tablets, from high quality photography to aerial footage. Even when beyond visual range, you can still capture the scene!
6-AXIS GYROSCOPE Paired with accelerometers delivers increased motion detection through lateral movement and rotation
MULTI-AXIS MANEUVERABILITY Droneball quadcopter is mounted so it remains level inside the cage after a collision
RESILIENT The sturdy cage keeps the quad from striking obstacles for less risk of broken parts
AGILE Its gyro stabilization and 4.5-channel radio allows it to effectively fly through tight spaces
REAL TIME HD DIGITAL VIDEO TRANSMISSION 5.8GHZ Transmission technology collects high quality photography and live 1080p HD aerial footage
FUTURE PROOF Camera can be upgraded and easily swapped out for future upgrades or repairs
ALL-IN-ONE FPV SOLUTION Compatible with most FPV glasses Droneball’s wide field of view camera is specifically designed for FPV flight.
The Droneball launched on January 3th on Indiegogo with a goal of $ 75,000 to fund the first wave of production. In addition, iMaze Toys has partnered with Walkera Technology to bring this to market, and they have decades of experience developing and manufacturing quadcopters, FPV camera drones, racing drones and other UAVs for the consumer market, commercial users and governmental agencies. Early backers of the project receive the Droneball for only $399, nearly half the price of the final retail version, alongside goodies like a rucksack for carrying and a red light pack.
Technology is rapidly evolving and changing the way that we go about living our daily lives. We’re living in an era were phones are able to do thousands of different things and cars can drive by themselves. Yet for all of this innovation, traveling and carrying things with you has remained relatively the same over the last couple of decades. Luggage hasn’t benefited from the rapid technological advances of the 21st century.
That is until now. Travelmate is a new type of robot that doubles as an affordable self moving suitcase. It moves by itself and thinks for itself thanks to a variety of sensors and integrated artificial intelligence. It’s fully autonomous, meaning that it moves on its own through all types of terrain. Travelmate easily navigates through crowds, uneven environments and other obstacles.
This robot doesn’t need any extra accessories and uses your smartphone’s location to follow you around. It adjusts to your speed and can go up to 6.75 mph, so it’ll never be far behind. It also has LED indicators which will show you where it’s planning to go.
David Near, Travelmate’s CEO, says that, “one of our top priorities is to make sure that Travelmate is as secure as possible”. That’s why you can see exactly where it is at all times through the Travelmate app on your smartphone. If someone else wants to take your Travelmate, it will sense that it isn’t following you anymore and will lock its wheels, which will prevent it from being moved. You can also activate audible alarms through the Travelmate app. These security features mean that it’s virtually impossible to lose it.
Travelmate has plenty of features. It has managed to re-invent the wheel – literally. Travelmate uses unique omni wheels that allow for precise adjustments in movement. It has such an incredible range of movement that it can turn 360 degrees without moving from its place.
You can tell your Travelmate to follow you from the side, from the front or from the back through the Travelmate application.
Travelmate is an autonomous suitcase, but it’s also the first affordable all purpose robot. It has the potential for hundreds of features and real world applications. It can be a camera operator, security robot, or a robot companion. There’s no limit to the potential that Travelmate has.
That’s in large part due to the team behind this one of a kind suitcase. Travelmate Robotics was formed as a separate company to launch consumer robots at an affordable price point. They’ve been developing Travelmate for over a year before officially announcing it. Their team consists of developers who have been manufacturing autonomous commercial robots for 8 years. They include robotics specialists, designers and even people who’ve worked on prototypes for space exploration rovers.
So it’s no wonder why Travelmate is so innovative and unique. You can pre-order a Travelmate right now through indiegogo at a starting price point of 399$. However, this price might not last long, because distributors are already in contact with Travelmate Robotics.
Distributors in more than 30 countries are already in negotiations to carry their suitcase in their stores. What that means is that pre ordering now may be your only chance to get one at such a low price. David Near says that, “we’re very happy that investors and distributors have expressed interest in our company. We are always open towards new partnerships and proposals”.
In any case, traveling is about to get a whole lot easier. Technology is constantly moving us forward and Travelmate is at the forefront of that.
