Engineered to make getting involved with robotics less intimidating, the 'Root' is a robot for beginners that's designed to help introduce the hobby to youngsters and/or families.

Robotics, coding and technology literacy are quickly becoming some of the most important educational topics for children to partake in. As the world evolves to favor pastimes and professions that are technology-focused, the need for ways to get involved that are fun and easy are becoming fundamental.

Funding now on Kickstarter, the 'Root' robot for beginners is the creation of Scansorial and can be controlled via a smartphone or tablet. The 'Root' robot can climb up the wall, respond to drawings on paper or a whiteboard and provide an array of other features that are inherently focused on tech literacy and creativity.
