你儿时都玩些什么?看看新一代儿童的11款高科技玩具

Uncubed 2016年07月10日

编程要从娃娃抓起,这11款玩具让孩子边玩边学编程和其他科学技能。

 
 

新一代儿童的玩具科技含量极高,相比之一,我们儿时玩过的变形金刚简直弱爆了。这些高科技玩具不仅给孩子带去快乐,还让他们边玩边学习编程等科学技能。

We’re old enough to remember when educational games were limited to the back of a box of cereal. But a whole new generation of kids are lucky enough to have access to teaching toys, games, and gadgets that are actual fun. We’ve got 11 of the best toys around that help children learn coding and tech skills.

 

1.Dash and Dot独眼机器人

与iOS和安卓设备配合使用的独眼语音机器人Dash and Dot可以帮助5岁及以上的儿童学习编程。它们可以对光线和声音做出反应,还能感知周围的物体,但必须在编程后才能与周围的世界互动。

The one-eyed, talking robots Dash and Dot integrate with iOS and Android devices to help teach kids ages 5 and up coding skills. Responding to light and sound, and sensing objects around them, the devices must be programmed to interact with the world around them.

 

2.Jewelbots手链

这款由Jewelbots推出的可编程友谊手链旨在让13岁的女孩接触到编程。在众筹网站kickstarter.com上成功筹款并获得至少像比尔·奈伊(科教节目《比尔教科学》主持人)这样的权威人士认可后,这款可穿戴产品将于今年夏天上市。

The programmable friendship bracelets from Jewelbots aim to make coding accessible to pre-teen girls. After a successful Kickstarter campaign which featured an endorsement from no less an authority than Bill Nye, the wearables will ship this summer.

 

3.Sphero SPRK Edition 机器人

大家对Sphero的了解可能源于他们在2015年假期推出的热门产品BB-8机器人,但这家公司不光只有趣味和游戏。Sphero SPRK Edition机器人致力于通过OVAL计算机语言教会孩子们机器人技术、编程以及科学、技术、工程和数学(STEM)原理。OVAL基于C语言,适于儿童学习。

You may recognize Sphero from their 2015 holiday hit BB-8, but it’s not all fun and games. The Sphero SPRK Edition promises to teach robotics, coding, and STEM principles through a C-based kid-friendly language called OVAL.

 

4.Mover Kit可穿戴编程玩具

Mover Kit本月早些时候在kickstarter.com网站上亮相,这是一款拆解方便的可穿戴设备,允许孩子们通过他们自己编写的集成应用使用Mover Kit上的加速度传感器、磁力仪和LED灯。

Launched on Kickstarter earlier this month, Mover Kit is an unassembled wearable that allows kids to create their own integrated apps, accessing the device’s accelerometer, magnetometer, and LEDs.

 

5. Kiwi Crate组装套件
