iRobot, the maker of the popular Roomba robot vacuum cleaners, also makes a coding robot for kids six and up! 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.

Que pourrait-il se passer en cas de problème ?

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 that 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. They also say they do not share personal data with third parties for commercial or marketing purposes. This is all great.. All in all, these learning robots feel pretty safe, and fun, for your kids.

Your Roomba May Be Mapping Your Home, Collecting Data That Could Be Shared
New York Times
High-end models of Roomba, iRobot’s robotic vacuum, collect data as they clean, identifying the locations of your walls and furniture. This helps them avoid crashing into your couch, but it also creates a map of your home that iRobot could share with Amazon, Apple or Google.
