What could happen if something went wrong
We want to love Artie and his code teaching abilities. Unfortunately, Artie raises some red flags for us. For a product with built-in WiFi, we were unable to tell if Artie encrypts the data it sends between your computer and Artie and the app that controls Artie. Also, Artie seems to function as an open WiFi hotspot, no password required. These questions raise the concern that Artie could be hacked and any data sent over Artie's WiFi could be open to anyone. These are not the lessons we think young coders should be learning
