WHY: In an age of device overload, we are striving to make the interactions between machines and humans truly beneficial. From learning to teaching and up to building relationships, we are aiming to make them #GrowTogether.
HOW: Solbit is the first robotic companion that reacts to emotions. Using an AI system (artificial intelligence) and a STEAM methodology (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math), Solbit follows, interacts and adapts to your child to play, learn and #GrowTogether in a responsive environment.
WHAT: Whether you are a child, a parent or a teacher, Solbit will create a personalized learning experience. Solbit does so many things: it listens, it recognizes (voices, words and images), it follows, it asks, it answers, it teaches and it tracks progress. Most important of all, Solbit learns and #growstogether with the child.
Meet our heroes – Chris, Michael, Anthony and Maria. Click on their photos on the right to discover their story of exploration.
Chris is a 5 year old who wants to travel all over the world. In his journey, he plas to discover new languages, learn new sciences, find out about different cultures. And after all these, he plans to invent something the world has never seen before. That’s why he started discovering the world around him with the object quests he has with his new friend – Solbit. Don’t tell anyone, but he is also getting ready to learn a new language – Solbit will learn with him.
Michael is 8 and, after watching the Transformers movie, he’s all about robots. He dreams about building one in the near future. A robot that can transform into a backpack so that he can take it with him at school and everywhere else. This is why he started learning about mechanics through the quiz app in Solbit’s system. Solbit also guides him by explaining to him how he is designed and what robotic components he is made of.
Anthony is a 6 year old who dreams about becoming a pilot. And a superhero, of course. He goes through a lot of books that highlight the different types of machines that mankind built and he asks Solbit what they are in order to better understand what he can create. Solbit also challenges to enhance his word pronunciation by repeating the names of the machines with him. That’s how you develop a superhero super speaker!
Maria is a creative, curious and modern 5-year-old girl who can use an iPad easier than her mother. Solbit is her friend and they learn together about the world around them through the Object Quest app. Even when her parents are not home, she feels close to them as she plays with all the games they chose for Solbit. In the meantime, they can see on the parent app how her knowledge is evolving and can be a part of her journey.
