You'll be having fun with your smart and cute robot by telling it what to do using block programming (Scratch-like) or Python Language. You will learn robotic sequencing concepts, conditionals, and physical sensing feedback.
The Codey Rocky robot is designed to teach the concepts of Physical Computing using the robot hardware and software.
As soon as you take this little "person" out the box, it’s apparent how cute Codey Rocky is. And yes, I’m calling it a "person". The little person has too much personality to be just an "it". Technically, there are two separate parts. The ‘face’ is Codey, a detachable controller that you code, while Rocky is the vehicle that transports Codey.
