CogniToys intended to inspire kids to enjoy learning through their everyday companion, toys. Therefore they developed an interactive robot called ‘Scout’ to make a positive impact on children’s lives. It is the smartest interactive toys ever created.
Scout is not typical, boring and merely a command follower. It is designed particularly for kids. It will answer all the curious questions arrive in your child’s mind and will interact like a best friend. Scout is a smart and curious robotic toy always excited to play games, create stories, going adventures and answer all the queries.
It is somewhat like a human since it learns new things from an interaction. The more you interact with Scout, the better it will learn. Such as songs, stories, fun facts about topics of your choice and whatever you want your toy to learn and explore.
It is recommended to keep your child’s mind more and more engaged and interactive and so there are other educational toys on the market. However, most educational toys utilize question and answer format that ultimately bore your child. Also, does not teach child emotional intelligence.
Scout is ready to make your child’s learning unique and exciting. It tells story, jokes and remembers child’s name, interacts with your child and motivates them to open up and keep excited to learn further.
In addition to this, Scout can count, spell, do the math and tell your child other knowledgeable stuff such as presidents, animals, and places.
CogniToys says, “Scout does not know everything, it is new to this planet, after all, and will sometimes ask a child to teach it, which promotes communication skills and shows a child’s mastery of subject areas. Scout is also emotionally intelligent and can suggest mediations when a child is angry, or a joke when a child is sad. After all, Scout is a friend, not a teacher, and friends help each other out!”
One thing to remember always that Scout is a friend who learns from the interaction so your communication with it is the source of learning things unknown. Treat Scout like a friend tell your name, your favorite subjects, your favorite food and Scout will learn that for forever. Accordingly, it will customize other features such as games and conversations with this knowledge.
About their AI they say, “Scout’s conversational ability comes from our patent pending AI platform, The Friendgine. Trained on over 10 million interactions and utilizing our proprietary scripting language, CogniScript, we create adaptable dialog trees, retrieve answers from knowledge bases, and weave interactions.”
“The content that Scout searches through when asked a question is pulled from a number of internal and sometimes external sources (like the weather for example), all vetted for optimum safety and child-friendliness.”
Scout is devised with the latest and greatest iteration of CogniToys hardware components. These comprised of new sensors that enable it to better comprehend the world. “Over the time Scout understands and create its personal and playful experience, better quality audio components for clearer and richer sound and better wi-fi radio for stronger connections in bad signal conditions (2.4GHz and 5GHz compatibility).”
To keep Scout synchronized with your child’s curious mind, CogniToys update it with new stories, games, and fun facts every week. Also, it is a secure, screen free and voice-enabled companion to fulfill all the knowledge need of your child.
It is equipped with all technological features required to interact with your children such as smart LED lights which gives Scout’s face emotive clues and its eyes dart from side to side when it says something, changed color when it is thinking and light up when it gets excited. Scout’s belly also lights up and makes those play-patterns exciting which involves timers, fractions, or color-based games.
Scout’s play patterns are multi-sensory which includes sounds, visuals, touch, and movement. It is easy to play and learn with Scout like touch the button on the belly for memory games, logic games and more. Scout is actually designed for ages five and grown-ups alike.
Hold down Scout’s communicator button and ask a question, tell a joke or share a fun fat with Scout. Later, it will light up and begin to share answers, laughs, learns and explore with a new friend.
