Jewelbots – cute friendship bracelets that teach kids to code

Jewelbots

In a world increasingly ruled by tech, teaching kids to code can give them a headstart in life. The Jewelbot is a fashion bracelet for older girls that introduces them to coding through simple interactive play.

Coding may sound like complex work for tech nerds but innovative products like Jewelbots are changing that perception. Through fun play with friends, girls who have a Jewelbot learn to code without even realising their favourite fashion piece is educational. It’s the toy equivalent of sneaking greens into their mac and cheese.

A friendship bracelet for the iPhone era, the Jewelbot works with an open source iPhone app that programs the bracelet to do just about anything. Your Jewelbot can alert you when Dad arrives to pick you up, notify you of a new Instagram post, or even fly a drone. Creative kids will love devising new ways to use this great gadget.

Jewelbot communicates through flashing lights and vibrations that can send alerts or messages via languages such as morse code. At its most simple this is a fun fashion piece that can link friends together as a communication device. Check out the video below for more details on what the Jewelbot can do.

Jewelbot are running a Kickstarter to get this brilliant bracelet into production. They have already well exceeded their goal of $30,000 with pledges now reaching over $130,000! But you can still pledge and grab yourself one of the first Jewelbots released. Get in quick because this is going to be big.
