Sphero, the robotics and STEM-based learning company, unveiled a new Mini Activity Kit on Friday that aims to make coding fun for kids. The kit, which goes on sale Oct. 2 for $79.99, includes one of Sphero's mini robotic balls and accessories that can be assembled into mazes, tunnels and more. Sphero said it also comes with 15 different Activity Cards that have step-by-step instructions for different play experiences.
"Mini Activity Kit takes our popular Mini robot a step further by offering an affordable at-home learning experience that mirrors guided lessons taught in schools," said Sphero CEO Paul Berberian in a release. "We wanted to give kids and their parents even more tools to create, explore and invent."
Russia tests new Soyuz rocket by sending a humanoid robot to the ISS
Russia's space agency, Roscosmos, has just launched a new Soyuz booster on a trip to the ISS. Unlike other Soyuz flights that blast off to bring astronauts to the space station, this trip has no humans on board. It does, however, have a passenger: a humanoid robot nicknamed Fyodor. The machine's real model name is Skybot F-850, and it's one of the latest versions of the FEDOR robot Russia has been working on for years. Fyodor blasted off with 1,450 pounds of supplies on top of a Soyuz 2.1a rocket, which is equipped with a new digital flight control system and upgraded engines, according to Space.
The mini robot's battery is equipped for 45 minutes of playtime and it packs in a gyroscope, accelerometer and LED lights. The company said a variety of mini games, different drive modes and the ability to change the LED light colors are available in the Sphero Play app. Kids will also be able to try out the upcoming code-based Block Drive mode, available Sept. 16, which is meant to serve as a friendly introduction to basic robot coding.
