Go-Robo Studio is a simple programming system for WowWee robots - that's the black and white Robosapien and Roboraptor etc. The idea is to teach programming skills in a fun and engaging way.
Go-Robo has been trialed in the UK schools for the last two years. If you'd like to try some fun programming yourself, or with your kids, all you need is a Robosapien or other WowWee robot plus a Roboremote. If you can't find a robot lurking in a cupboard, you’ll find used ones on eBay -. You can download the software for a free 30 day trial from http://www.Q4technologies.com .
Go-Robo studio uses a simple scripting language called GRIDscript with a dedicated IDE. GRIDscript programs can be assembled, with sound-effects and music, on a Flash-like timeline interface.
