In the past few months, we have seen a bunch of cool educational robots for kids. Coder MiP from WowWee is also worth a look. It is a programmable balancing robot with app control. Your kids can use a drag & drop interface for commands and customize the robot’s reactions to clapping, hand gestures, and other inputs.
Coder MiP connects to your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. It communicates through motion, sound, and LED lights. The app for this robot will be available for iOS and Android devices soon.[where to find it]
