Leading robotics education startup from Korea, LUXROBO is launching a coding homeschooling product called ‘Designer Kit Set’ targeted at the North American market in November. To be launched on North American e-commerce platform eBay and Shopify, and priced at approximately US$ 220, the Designer Kit Set will consist of a Designer Kit, a Making Pack, and a Coding Sketch.
The Designer Kit Set is an innovative homeschooling product developed at the research and development center of LUXROBO following challenges facing schools in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Designer Kit allows users to express their creativity and apply it towards real-life scenarios using the basics of engineering and Coding. It covers up to 10 activities – two kinds of unplugged activities and eight kinds of Coding – that would help children challenge themselves in a creative environment and develop their coding output.
The Designer Kit Set allows Coding from scratch on Android or iOS mobile operating systems through Luxrobo’s modular robotics platform MODI.
What Is MODI?
MODI is LUXROBO’s industry-recognized modular coding education kit developed for building and connecting DIY robotic creations. MODI modules comprise input, output, and set up modules that allow learners to acquire key concepts across computer science and coding curriculums in a fun and engaging way. Through hands-on, project-based activities, learners of all ages can tackle problems logically while developing their critical thinking and computational thinking skills. In combination with a STEAM curriculum, 3D printing, and LEGO, MODI classes come alive.
MODI is adopting MODI as a software product at institutions in 50 countries worldwide, including the Busan City School District. With MODI, we’re committed to helping you with realistic software education and unlocking your children’s potential.
Established in 2014, LUXROBO Inc. is a leading Korean robotics education technology startup specializing in corporate online and offline coding education services in South Korea.
The name ‘LUXROBO’ is a combination of light (lux, unit of light) and robot, and has a great ambition to create a smart and bright future using robot technology. LUXROBO has developed a semiconductor OS that can reliably and organically control robots, and has robot-based technologies such as three-stage compression communication, virtualization parameters, and multi-compilation that can be compared to expensive products even with inexpensive semiconductors. Using these technologies, they created a small modular robot called MODI in 2014.
LUXROBO’s MODI is a modular hardware platform consisting of 21 modules with specific functions and software coding tools for users and learners of all ages and backgrounds. MODI was designed for users to recognize each module’s function intuitively. Most types of modular devices have an exposed circuit board, but MODI does not. And it offers the added value of safety and familiarity, hence suitable for children to play with.
