Learning starts at an early age: this is the precept that has guided the making of our Opal. Her design is wholly innovative; Opal’s unique shape was created to intrigue young learners, yet maintains simple, easily understood mechanics. Opal’s focus is to bring programming languages to young audiences, by making programming immediate and rewarding; a few lines of code are sufficient to make her move. Opal further familiarises learners with 3D printed technology, multiple sensors and cameras. We believe that life-changing technology should be accessible to everyone, which is why Opal’s design is easily recreated in Fablabs and opensource.
