'Wow Wee' has launched the most mischievous new programmable toy with its Minion coding toy 'Turbo Dave.'
Toy-makers have been launching a variety of responsive toys that facilitate learning in computer programming. Inspired by the popular film franchise 'Despicable Me,' this interactive Minion toy provides hours of fun while educating children subliminally. This Minion coding toy allows the user to input commands that make the toy responsive to swipe gestures, touch sensors and sound detection. For example, with the use of an app, the user can program the minion to fart or burp on command.
The latest offerings by LEGO and Sony have high-tech capabilities but this convergence of popular culture and tech approaches computer programming in an easily accessible way. By limiting its technological capabilities and branding the device with Despicable Me characters, Turbo Dave is a toy that people can see integrated into their lives more easily.
