We’ve gotten a lot of excited emails asking when our apps will be available. While they are not available in the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store yet, we thought we would share a sneak preview below!
Go is where everyone will begin with Bo and Yana. Here we have the getting started tutorials, a remote control, and some fun surprises along the way! Go is where your child will learn all about Bo and Yana and become comfortable controlling the robots.
Blockly was developed using a visual coding language for more advanced kids. Commands are dragged onto the screen, telling Bo to do things like turn left when it senses a wall or run away when it hears a clap. Yana can do things like change light colors when tapped! Blockly was originally developed by Google. Your child can become familiar with a version of the language here: https://blockly-games.appspot.com/
Xylo teaches loops as your child tells Bo to play different melodies on our Xylophone!
Path allows your children to tell Bo where to go by dragging their finger along the screen. Virtual worlds like a race track make play even more imaginative! By adding in sounds, events, or loops, your child can create a real race day experience. Events and sequences are shown visually, which is easier to grasp for little learners.
This is just a quick update on what we have been up to while we work on getting Bo & Yana to you. We hope you are as excited as we are! As always, if you have questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org
