Do you want Roamer to Speak Another Language?
Today we launched a Korean speaking Roamer. Thanks to Paul Lee and his colleagues who taught Roamer to speak the Korean Language. Roamer has the ability to speak any language on the planet. Do you want to teach Roamer to speak French, Welsh, Italian or perhaps you want it to speak English with a Yorkshire accent. Why not contact us and we will make your Roamer help you transform your robot.

Project Full STEAM Ahead
Honoured as Superintendent of the year 2014 Dr Kevin Maxwell is now in charge of Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) in Maryland USA. Dr Maxwell is a strong believer in the arts. In 2010, the Arts Education in Maryland Schools Alliance honoured his efforts to improve arts education. It is perhaps not surprise he has made arts integration as a key strand in his PGCPS policy. Add arts to STEM and you get STEAM: Science, Technology, engineering, arts and maths. Earlier this year saw the launch of a Roamer pilot project called Full STEAM Ahead. This follows up on earlier Robotic Performing Arts™ work done by Valiant. Continue reading
