Former Googler, Apple Engineer Tackle Educational Robots |  AllThingsD
There are apps that teach kids the basics of programming.
And then there are robots that get the job done.
That’s the vision of a group of four tech entrepreneurs who late last year formed a company with the purpose of creating educational robots for kids.
The Bay Area-based company, called Play-i, is still in the early stages of building out its bots and determining their form and functionality.
Vikas Gupta, Play-i’s founder and CEO, says the robots will be targeted at children aged 5 to 8, and will most likely work in conjunction with tablets. Using a tablet or other mobile device running compatible software, the child will be able to program his or her robot to perform certain actions.
