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.
