Crowdsourcing Mornings: Ozobot Smart Robotic Game Piece

Geek Alabama Crowdsourcing Mornings

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings!  This post will take place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from KickstarterIndiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

They created Ozobot to bring social gaming back to game night. Ozobot is a physical game piece that can play with virtual worlds, creating a bridge between old and new, cutting edge and nostalgic.  While Ozobot loves to play, learning is also a natural activity. Imagine a group of school kids completing an app learning game using Ozobot’s SmartCodes. In the process of completing their game mission, they are also learning the fundamentals of robotic programming.

Measuring slightly over an inch in diameter and height, Ozobot is the world’s most compact smart robot of its kind and features some of the smallest components on the planet.  The possibility of bridging digital and physical gaming has been one of their most exciting frontiers.  Ozobot’s ability to operate in both worlds and autonomously navigate between them created a new realm which they call hybrid gaming.  Whether you are enjoying the thrill of a racing game or testing your skills on a strategic board game, the Ozobot hybrid gaming platform will capture your imagination and let you experience new and classic games like never before.

As of February 19th, this project has raised around $59,515 of their $100,000 goal.   This project only has 9 days left to raise the $100,000 or they will not be funded!  For a pledge of $25, you will get a permanent honorary listing on the Ozobot “Wall of Thanks” + Ozobot branded 8GB USB slap bracelet.  For a pledge of $55, you will get a Titanium Black or Crystal White Ozobot with a special designer skin.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1553662364/ozobot-intelligent-game-piece-for-physical-and-dig
