Codi the robot will try to convince your kid that cleaning is fun at CES 2019
It's a robot meant for your kid obviously and it's meant to help reinforce good habits.
It sings songs, it tells stories.
And the stories are meant to be educational and the songs are meant to enforce the things you want you to be doing anyway.
It has a few different buttons and a few different functions, and one of the cool things is, that if you're out and about you can actually call and leave a message on CODI, and then your child can actually play that message back on the robot and then respond using the robot as well.
So it's a very interactive and kind of cool toy that is meant to help your kid learn while keeping them entertained.
As you can see it's very colorful.
It also comes with a number of different costumes and a couple of different buttons, which your kid can use to offer feedback to the robot.
After the robot plays a song or tells a story for the first time, your child can use these buttons to indicate whether he or she liked the story.
It will then use that information when giving the parent feedback via the app so that the parent knows which stories, which lullabies to queue up next.
Your child can also give voice commands to the robot, but unlike an Amazon Echo, Codi isn't always listening.
That's intentional, the company didn't want this thing to be creepy.
Instead, the child just presses and holds that button, and then it can respond if the robot asks a question.
Codi's actually available right now for 100 bucks, and as you can see, there are a number of different costumes it can wear, too.
All of those cost $10 apiece.
So if your child wants a colorful toy, and you want something that's gonna reinforce good habits, the Pillar Learning Codi could be worth a look.
