Aisoy

Building revolutionary emotional robots for making our lives more fun and easier, a social robot that has the power to engage like never before..

Aisoy1 V5, is a very affordable programmable social robot. It is not a toy. It is a powerful almost magical device, that enables people, of all ages, to explore social robotics, and learn how to program social robots in languages like Scratch, Blockly and Python. It is capable of doing most of the things you’d expect a social robot to do, from talking, to feeling if you touch it or move it and playing games. Education needs to adapt to current times and prepare our kids for the future, not giving the answers but promoting an attitude based on “learning to learn” and discovering how things work. Learning to enjoy to investigate, analyze, build, establish a hypothesis, experiment, discover, collaborate, share and communicate.

Kids need to touch, play and experiment with real things (not only multimedia things) by themselves  Kids need something new that surprises and engages them – something magical Kids need a personal strategy with things going at their own speed because of different levels and types of intelligence in the classroom as well as at home.

Aisoy Social robots are real and magic, because they are interactive robots!

SIMA

At SIMA Project we decide to build a personal, humanoid-robot for kids, to play teach and learn. We have developed a robotic body that when is merged with smartphones setup the SIMA Robot. A robot companion able to hear, communicate and interact by gestures and voice.

We´ve decided to leverage on what we consider is a very common device, to give connection and sensor to our robots and in this way made it more accesible for everyone.
