Stereomedia teamed up with Site Projects to develop educational curriculum for kids. And I was thinking, how are we going to get kids to make progress and stay focused?
Easy: robots. What better way to get kids to be compliant than to let them mess with the best robot toy of the 1980's?
Armatron is better than R.O.B. (the nintendo game bot that could only be used to play Gyromite).
There were a few other robotic toys from that era, but none of the ones that I can remember actually do anything. Problems with armatrons is that they break. thats why its good to have 2 nonfunctional ones for parts.
