If robots are going to one day take over the world, they first need to ingratiate themselves on our children. Now, I’m not saying that this is what is going on with the ‘Codi’ robot, but let’s just say this is another toy robot that I will keep my eye on. This robot was developed for children to let them play and learn with something different than a tablet or smartphone screen.
This robot is all about your kid’s personal growth. It comes with parent-approved lessons, stories, activities, and songs that will have your child learning and having a good time. But I’m not fooled. I’m watching you, buddy. It’s powered by artificial intelligence and lets children choose from several different functionalities when waking up, going to bed and those times in between. It connects to a mobile app that allows parents to keep an eye on how long their child is using the device for and to see how they are developing.
Your kid learns and you still have complete control. We like that. This robot will help to give your child less time in front of screens, so that’s a good thing.
Okay, he’s winning me over, but I’m still going to… He’s just too cute. Okay Codi, I accept you. I hope I don’t regret this decision.
