Roybi Robot

Cool gadgets

This robot may look like a cute alien, but don’t let the design fool you – it’s an artificial-intelligence powered tool designed to help learn language and STEM skills. Using machine learning, Roybi Robot gradually tailors its lessons and responses to a child’s unique learning style, even recognising the child’s emotions and incorporating content he or she most enjoys. Kids can hear a story, sing a song or learn a lesson, Kayla Prochnow. Kayla Prochnow, a content specialist at Roybi, says the robot gives children personalised education in early childhood, a crucial time when they’re soaking up language like a sponge. The company hopes the robot – which costs $189 on Indiegogo – will give kids

a strong foundation

for success.
