Ohbot is an assembled robot head that is programmed by children.
It has seven motors to provide a range of realistic movement. Ohbot is connected to a Windows PC running Ohbot software so that it can be programmed.
Ohbot uses a block programming environment based on the Scratch language which was developed at MIT. Ohbot includes text-to-speech technology so that children can program it to say whatever they like. It also includes face recognition so that it can be programmed to react when it sees a child and follow their movement. Ohbot uses a microcontroller board which allows for additional sensors to be used. Compatible with Windows 7/ 8 and 10.
Ohbot is already being used by over a thousand schools and individuals in the UK and around the world and was a finalist in the awards for ICT Innovator of the year at the BETT show in London in 2016.
