  • Overview

    Wonder Workshops' Dash robot acts as a sidekick, pet, or pal in the world created by your child using easy-to-learn code on an iPad. It's packed with sensors and capabilities that let it move, dance, light up, make sounds, avoid obstacles and even react to voices. Dash can greet kids as they come home from school, help them deliver a message to a friend, follows them on journeys and become a true partner in fun.

    A real robot

    Dash has sensors that let it know when it’s about to run into something in front of or behind it, microphones that can hear sound and even detect where it’s coming from in a room, as well as infrared sensors that let it see and communicate with other robots. You can even record sounds on your iPad or iPhone and have Dash play them back to surprise friends and family. And you’re also free to write your own Swift code to configure and control Dash.

    No assembly required

    Unlike some robotics products that need hours of assembly, Dash comes pre-assembled and ready to play. You don't even need batteries.

    Engaging apps

    Dash works with all of Wonder Workshops' free apps for iOS or Android. Go and Path appeal to all ages. For children 8 and up, Blockly and Wonder offer fun challenge tutorials that teach them programming - while they’re having fun making Dash do lots of funny things. With more than 600 built-in tutorials, challenges and projects, the apps let children explore programming at their own pace. They also help children develop the confidence and self-reliance to learn coding on their own.

      Dash good entry point into robotics and programming for the young

      Recommended for 5 year olds, it was a perfect fit for the 6-year old. But even the 9 year old enjoyed figuring it out and teaching it to the 6 year old. (All I Recommended for 5 year olds, it was a perfect fit for the 6-year old. But even the 9 year old enjoyed figuring it out and teaching it to the 6 year old. (All I did was enter the password on the iPad to access iTunes). The kids had Dash moving and talking within the hour. They figured out how to input their voices and words into the robots. The 6 year old then taught the 4 year old how to work it, and the 4 year old now has it moving and talking. Dash will turn and look for them when they call it by name. You can also do actual programming with Dash, so it is also good for the 9 year old as well. A good entry point into robotics for young children. Robotics is up and coming part of the Ontario elementary school curriculum.
