A dancing, laser beam-shooting robot aspires to teach kids how to code

The Codeybot dances, plays music, changes colors and even shoots laser beams — all to entice little tykes to start programming.
The coding toy from Shenzhen-based startup Makeblock is just the latest on the edutainment bandwagon taking things up a techie notch. It joins a talking, projectile-firing robot, a remote-controlled origami robot, code-teaching drones, and even a crawly “Code-a-Pillar” in a trend of code-teaching toys that seems to have become all the rage in the past few months alone.
