Root draws artwork, plays musical compositions, responds to touch, and is packed with even more sensors and actuators to keep kids hooked.
Ready to Start
Root comes charged and is ready to go. A large foldout whiteboard and markers are included to start drawing on any flat smooth surface at home or school.
Three Level System
Root's coding app was built from the ground up to be approachable for even preschoolers or kindergarteners. The app's three level interface is designed for beginners and grow with them to reach real-world programming languages.
Patented Whiteboard Climbing Technology
Root is the only coding robot that can stick to and climb magnetic whiteboard walls, making it easy for K-12 students and teachers to share the artwork and games they coded in a classroom.
