Robots For Good is a project for 5-12 year old children to connect with their friends during social isolation.
Our mobile application, VectorConnect, enables a child in one home to take control and “become” the robot in another child’s home, using a mobile phone or tablet and allows children to play remotely with their friends using the Vector robot. The remote child can see through the robot’s camera, control the robot as it drives around and engage in a variety of games with the child in the home with the robot.
Through the robot, children can play hide and seek, build challenging obstacle courses for the robot, and express their creativity by inventing other games to play with the robot.
Children can speak directly to each other, combating social isolation through combined physical and social engagement.
