Anki wants to take Artificial Intelligence out of the lab and into your everyday life through consumer robotics products that are fun and friendly.
The company launched Cozmo Code Lab a while back so that fans could easily program the little robot. This allows both adults and children to learn to code Cozmo, whether they want to make him move, recognize faces, do animations, and lots more.
Learn to Code by Playing With a robot
It’s a tool that has helped to teach aspiring coders of all ages, turning them into better programmers.
Some of these kids are going to go on to do some really amazing things with the skills they are learning. Kids seem to have a lot of success with this program.
Now they can take things even further because one of the companies recent updates to Code Lab adds some great features.

The Learning Possibilities are Endless
Code Lab’s capabilities recently got expanded with the Constructor Mode. They have also added a score of other features, many that users have been asking for like: if statements, math operators, variables, function calls, and more.
There are new blocks and also vertically-oriented block stacks that more closely mimic the way text-based code is structured. Constructor Mode bridges the gap between the icon-based Code Lab (Sandbox Mode) and the full Cozmo SDK. The key here is that learning to code is fun and you can see immediate results from the coding that you put in.
You can do all kinds of fun things like conducting a symphony with Cozmo, turn Cozmo’s Cubes into a light show for dancing, play Hot Potato, use Cozmo as a Fire Truck alarm, and more.
You can even remix the code any way you like and submit your own projects to be showcased in the Featured Projects section of Code Lab.
In short, Anki’s Code Lab is the driving force behind making Cozmo fun and making it possible to learn quickly and efficiently (and cool to be a geek).
