Pokety, a pocket robot
|Short Description:||The purpose of the project is to produce a pocket-size interactive robot for the amusement of children affected by autism or dyspraxia. The robot has its own personality, which is displayed in accordance with kid's movements.|
Pokety was conceived with a view to those fundamental requirements a commercial child's toy should satisfy: being cheap and entertaining. Since the project's target is mainly constituted by individuals mentally disabled or suffering from mobility impairments, including children throughout infancy and early childhood, greater focus and effort must be employed in order to reach their different, though unique, sensitivity.
