Zowi the robot

Der kleine Roboter Zowi soll Kinder spielerisch an die Robotik heranführen und ist daher auch out of the box benutzbar.
Am Anfang kann er zwar nur ein Bewegungen, dies kann aber jedes Kind nach seinen Bedürfnissen erweitern und anpassen.
Zovi ist über eine Android App steuerbar und kann zerlegt und wieder zusammengebaut werden.

„A friendly robot that’s ready to play and discover the world. We’ve created it to help you learn about robotics in a fun way.

When you take it out of the box, it already knows how to do a few things, but it wants you to teach it a whole lot more.

Download the Zowi App and discover all the games, take Zowi apart to learn how it works, or program it to teach it new skills.

The more you play, the more functions will be unlocked!!
