Artie 3000 is a little robot designed to help teach kids to code. It's marketed to parents and educators as an"award-winning coding robot." With built-in local WiFi, a variety of coding apps, remote control, and even the ability to draw, Artie sounds pretty darn fun and it's got the STEM learning chops many parents are looking for.

What could happen if something goes wrong?

Artie 3000 doesn’t collect data of any kind, so no worries there. And with Artie’s built-in local WiFi, it doesn’t connect directly to the internet. One security researcher found Artie very safe. He did point out it could be possible, although very very unlikely, that Artie could be used to deliver malware. He said it was much more likely Artie 3000 would be used to plant the seed of curiosity for coding in future generations.

We also don't think much could go wrong with Artie. And we're all for teaching kids to code at a young age if they're interested. All in all, we think Artie 3000 seems like a pretty good bot.
