Ozobot Toy Robots Follow Lines, Not the Yellow Brick Road

by Conner Flynn

Ozobot gaming robots are basically spherical robots that follow lines. They also see color and interpret flashes of light to respond accordingly. The robots have five sensors on the underside that help them stay on the tracks, while the colors and flashes cue them for behavioral changes.

Right now, Ozobots has only four pre-programmed games available, including one in which players can watch their Ozobot escape a maze, and a two-player game that requires players to reach the finish line first.

Does this idea have potential? Probably. It will be interesting to see what kinds of unique things they can come up with to keep us entertained with these diminutive robots.

You can expect to see Ozobots on Kickstarter soon with a funding goal of about $100,000.
