"This robot is the first Belarusian development, set up to help children in the study of subjects such as computer science, mathematics, music and biology. It is designed for children aged 8 to 14 years. On itself it carries a plurality of sensors which are responsible for the interaction. For example, the light sensor is mounted on the top, and the child can write a program that, if, say, pet cat, he will blink his eyes.
