Teach Tech Zivko the Robot
As robots go, Zivko has personality. Maybe it's the blinking eyes and sound effects. Whether following the movement of your hand or working its way through an obstacle course that you set up, Zivko seems to interact with you. Zivko is a 107-piece robot that includes infrared sensors and artificial intelligence. Mobility (360-degree) comes from the movement of his 6 legs. He can operate in two modes; Follow Me (I would love to try this one behind our cat) and Explore. Another great robotics kit from our friends at Elenco. You will need to provide a diagonal cutter, screw driver, 4-AAA batteries, and safety glasses.
Zivko the Robot is an intelligent Hexiped robot. What a great introduction to Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology. Zivko has two function modes: Follow or Explore.
In "Follow" mode, Zivko follows whoever approaches it, and acts like an obedient pet and follows you around.
In "Explore" mode, Zivko can avoid obstacles and find a new route to explore. The little robot offers exciting sound and light effect. It develops its own emotions and gestures, just like your pets.
Try to challenge Zivko and figure out what it can do. Create a maze for it to navigate or explore its surroundings and see if it can follow you. Most of all, do not treat it like a normal robot toy, but like an adorable smart friend.
