This week a startup from Harvard University Scansorial launched a new Kickstarter campaign for a new project called Root.

Root aims to be an easy-to-use robot that will help teach any age to code by using a robot with over 50 sensors and actuators that will allow it to work with drawings, music, and more, with the ability to magnetize to things like whiteboards to allow for even cooler implementations.

It can be programmed from an iPad with Root’s companion app, which will allow users to drop blocks onto a graphical interface to control the robot, which will feature various progressive methods to allow users to learn more over time.

This can also all be done in real-time.
