Step Up: Help Your Robot Get Its Groove on With Free OzoGroove App

STEM Learning Has Never Been This Fun -- You Cue Up, Then Code to Your Favorite Music and Turn Ozobot Into a Dancing Machine

REDONDO BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - December 01, 2014) - OzoGroove, the newest app from the makers of the world's smallest programmable robot known as Ozobot, proves that robots can glide and dance with grace. Until now robots have been getting a bad rap for their mobility with humans doing The Robot Dance. Techies, kids and game enthusiasts can now download the free App from Google play or the iTunes Store and cue their music, then code their amazing buddy.

For anyone not familiar with the hottest smart toy in augmented reality, Ozobot can be programmed for action in thousands of ways. Packed with a tech-y wow factor, the one-inch wonder has earned buzz from The International CES to mom bloggers and finally awards from the toy industry. Dr. Toy gave it two of her 2014 honors -- 10 Best Technology and 100 Best Children's Products. Just this week Ozobot made headlines as a Toy of the Year (TOTY) finalist in the Most Innovative Toy category in the Toy Industry Association's "Oscars," and last week earned The National Parenting Center Holiday 2014 Seal of Approval.

Anouk Zisa, VP, Marketing of Ozobot's parent company Evollve, appeared at The 2014 Luxury Technology Show in Beverly Hills. The glamorous and the geeks were enchanted with a preview of Ozobot's graceful grooves. As she explained, "This tiny robot can read 1,000s of static color code commands on paper or tablets -- and more impressively can be programmed on tablets to read flashing light codes, remember and perform up to 500 of them. With this new App, OzoGroove, everyone can learn to program while choreographing their own routines to their favorite music. The robot reads and 'learns' the code created moments before, then dances."

OzoGroove is the latest App offering created just for Ozobot. For best results, perform dances right on an Android or IOS tablet. If one robot is cute, two or more robots choreographed simultaneously are simply amazing! Robots are sold in a Single Pack, $49.99 or convenient Double Pack, $99.99. For youngsters 8 and older, the all-important STEM curriculum has just become seriously fun.

Not sure where to step first? The app comes with built-in demos, versatile dance tools and even a help desk. Simply download, cue your music and sequence a few moves. Over time users can master their skills and create uber cool moves within the app's PRO editor option. Choreograph one or multiple bots. Gather your friends and their Ozobots to create a dance troupe!
