MIXING PHYSICAL WITH DIGITAL
Living in Digital Times founder Robin Raskin warns parents that providing children with toys that introduce coding concepts does not guarantee that these children will become "the next Bill Gates". But she does see something interesting in the mixing of physical with digital, "providing a less abstract way to gain coding skills".
COJI is one of the coding products Raskin highlights in her Huffington Post blog post titled Toys that Code have Parental Appeal:
Kids can play games with emojis, sent from their phone, that will appear on the COJI robot's LCD head. The robot is also responsive to real world tilting and shaking making it fun even for those without a smartphone in hand.
