How a little wooden robot is helping the next generation of coders.

It's a wooden toy that helps young kids to code - and there's not a screen in sight. Andy was intrigued to find out more.


This is how I imagine toy robots – not very imaginative, I know.

So I was intrigued to hear the story of how a little wooden robot is helping young children to learn code without the aid of a screen. Something parents worried about their little ones being glued to mobiles, tablets and laptops will be equally happy about I’m sure.

The revelation came in a chat with Liam Fay-Fright, the CEO of Common Industry, whose catchline is “We Make Things That Make News.”

I also heard that my whiteboard with the four coloured markers is very last year – maybe last decade.

Have a look for yourselves.
