Robot Ideas for Kids
Robotic Toys and Games for Kids (and grown-ups!)
Hi and welcome to Bootkidz, a small design company based in London. We've recently updated this page with links to Robot toys and games.
What does Robot mean?
The word "Robot" comes from the Czech word 'robota'. Robots are machines that perform tasks for humans such as cleaning or face recognition. Work which is repetitive is easier for robots. In the future robots will do more amazing things, such as build houses (video of quadcopters building with metal struts) and go into space (NASA robotics).
What is the world's most advanced robot?
It is debatable, but we think the most advanced robot is ASIMO, which is Honda's world famous robot that can walk, run, climb stairs, dance and recognise people.
