The 'Photon' toy robot is the latest plaything for children that will make things a bit more fun and interactive when it comes to learning code. Funding now on Kickstarter, the 'Photon' robot uses a visual programming interface to have users input the commands they want to have the robot carry out.

The 'Photon' robot is focused on a storytelling timeline to help encourage children to continue coding and playing rather than just offering them the equipment. This is said to help keep them motivated to play with the 'Photon' robot toy, which is based on research from experts in psychology and gamification.

The entirety of the 'Photon' robot can be interacted with to make learning code a more manageable task for little ones.
