The whole purpose of DigiDame is to inform people over 50 about what’s happening in the digital world. I’m well aware that many of my readers know more than I do. I still feel it’s very important to bring certain products and services to your attention so that when you’re in conversations with younger folks, you are as “cool” as they are.
One of the newest products that I wanted to give you a heads up on is Ozobot, a tiny robot that recognizes codes and sensors for both mobile digital devices (tablets) and analog surfaces (paper).
The Ozobot traces paths that you create, either for games or other activities in the future. Watch both videos for complete demonstrations of the “bots” capabilities.
The bots flash colors depending on the color of the path they are following. The bots can also follow tracks you draw or ones supplied from the company. Ozobot is also looking for other software developers to create additional applications.
If you buy a complete set from Ozobot, — a race track kit with two robots–for around $150. Additional robots sell for $59. Check out Amazon.
