Swiss Robot for Kids

Thymio II/EPFL
Swiss scientists at EPFL have developed an educational robot designed to introduce children to technology in schools priced inexpensively (about 99 francs, or $110 U.S.).
The Thymio II is an affordable educational robot and provides three main features: a large amount of sensors and actuators, a specific interactivity based on light and touch, aimed at increasing the understanding of the robot functionalities and a very efficient programming environment based on Aseba, a simple language, that contains the principle concepts of programming.
The Thymio II is produced and sold by the mobsya association.
