Primo-The Toy That Brings Out The Programmer In Kids

We live in a world of ace technology and innovation. It has been entwined in our lives to such an extent that it has found its way into the elementary education for kids as well. We have left the days in the past when programming was considered a serious affair for the high-end programmers of certain language. The cornerstone of any kind of programming is the logic behind it. The quality of any program is determined by the underlying logic. Primo is such a kit that helps kids to develop programming logic without the aid of literacy.

Primo comes in with three parts: Cubetto, wooden robot that is not only smart but also adorable, Interface: a wooden board used to provide instruction to the robot and colorful blocks which are used in programming for Cubetto. These three elements essentially teach the kids the basics of programming logic to control the robot by placing the colored blocks on the interface in order to send out the instructions that would regulate the robot, thus building the basic logic of programming in these young minds.

Primo allows the kids to customize their instructions to Cubetto via the interface board thus giving them an opportunity to be ingeniously creative. The kit also allows manual manipulation of the robot by the feature of opening it wide across. One can plug-in the robot to any electronic device like laptops, smart phones, etc. Once plugged in they can program the robot using the device, thus introducing them to the world of serious programming.
