Ozobot

Ozobot is set to have a big year in 2017. It just raised $3 million and showed at CES 2017 Marvel-themed Ozobot Evo robots thanks to a new partnership with Disney.

Details are somewhat sparse at this point, but the company said that in 2017 it will be "releasing a rose gold robot, which is part of our larger initiative to get girls to code. For every 100 rose gold Evos sold, we will donate an Ozobot classroom kit to a partner organization. We will also be launching level five of OzoBlockly (based off of Google’s Blockly), which will give players full command of the color language. You will be able to reprogram the color commands to have different meanings, which gives you more programming possibilities than ever before with Ozobot. You will also be able to create your very own Ozojis to send to friends, taking the social features of Evo to the next level."
