LAS VEGAS — Elmo’s coming to Sesame Road with a model new set of wheels.
On Tuesday, WowWee confirmed off ELMOJI, its upcoming robotic collaboration with Sesame Workshop. It is a teeny robotic model of your favourite Sesame Road character, and its purpose is to show children to code.
ELMOJI works alongside an app that WeeWow says will educate younger kids the fundamental foundations of coding by cute, visible Elmo emojis. As children work their manner by video games, Elmoji strikes round, reacts to stimuli and encourages their progress.
A WeeWow spokesperson tells Mashable that Sesame Workshop approached the staff to construct a product that introduced collectively “the Sesame Road ethos” and kid-focused expertise.
Although ELMOJI’s companion app continues to be within the growth stage, a spokesperson tellsMashable that the product is more likely to hit the market in late 2017, tentatively in September.
