SDCC 2018: Ozobot Teaches Coding Using Your Favorite Marvel Heroes and Villains

Learn to code with your favorite Marvel superheroes and villains.

Ozobot is a coding toy that anyone can get into and enjoy, especially newbies!

Morgan Andersen, marketing project manager and producer with Ozobot, showed off some of the new models with the Ultron skin on the tiny bot. Shacknews grabbed some sweet new footage of the coding tool, which looks like a lot of fun.

The toy helps kids (and everyone else, for that matter) learn how to code. Anyone can learn the basics of coding and programming, and it's all done with regular markers.

If you'd rather use an app, you can utilize an online coding platform with up to five levels of difficulty via OzoBlockly. You can load your code onto your Ozobot via your tablet or mobile device, and the programming will work with Ozobot without markers from there.

The product starts at $100, and you can find it at a variety of different retailers. The new Marvel line includes Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Captain America, and Ultron. The characters can even interact with each other, with heroes and villains responding appropriately to each other.
