Poles invented Photon - world’s first interactive robot that grows up with children while teaching them programming.

Photon is an intelligent and interactive robot that teaches children how to code. Through engaging storytelling, experiments and heavy use of gamification the robot is able to explain the basics of programming in a digestible and most importantly: fun way.

“In four years there will be a gap of over a million computing jobs and candidates available for grabbing” says Marcin Joka, the CEO of Photon Entertainment. “We want to take part in closing that gap and proving that with a proper set of tools even a six year old can successfully learn how to code, and have a huge advantage in his or her future career”, he explains to Linktopoland.

Photon Entertainment has successfully collected funds for creating Photon on Kickstarter. Special challenge-tied stretch goals include backer exclusive accessories for the robot (such as a jetpack or mouth allowing for speech visualization) as well as donations for various child related charities (cancer wards, orphanages and others).
