iRobot Root

Fecha de la reseña 02/11/2020

iRobot, the maker of the popular Roomba robot vacuum cleaners, also makes a coding robot for kids! Who knew? Their Root robot kits—they have two—let's kids learn to code by programming the robots to drive, turn, draw, light-up, play music, express itself, and more. These kits are good for multiple coding skill levels—from coding with graphical blocks to actually using full-text code. It's very cool to see iRobot—a company we like because they seem to take protecting their users' privacy seriously—make these learning robots for kids.

Qué podría pasar si algo falla

A few years back iRobot got into a bit of hot water because it appeared they were mapping users' homes with their Roomba robot vacuum cleaners with potential plans to sell that data. Since then, iRobot has stepped up and made it a point to show they don't sell users' personal data about their lives or homes. This is very good. We appreciate they state in their privacy policy that no data is sold to third-parties and no data will be shared with third-parties without the customer's knowledge or control. This is a childrens' learning robot, not a vacuum. The iRobot privacy policy does have a brief statement that their products are not for children under 13.
