I want to teach programming to my preschooler, and am interested in getting a robot that can be controlled via simple code.
I am looking for the following features:
1) Humanoid (preferably, does not matter)
2) Something that will interface with a laptop via IR or bluetooth
3) Something that will have a simple programming interface to take commands such as: Go, Back, Left, Right; and some basic looping functionality.
4) Compiler/interpreter does not matter
The goal is to teach the kid to write a series of steps which can drive the robot.
Is there anything that is readily available in the marketplace to do this?
At a minimum, if there is something with a bluetooth interface and clear API, I can write a simple interpreter or compiler which will invoke that API to control the robot.
Your suggestions are highly appreciated.
Just another dude.
