Can you explain a little more about Scratchjr and Zowi? Sounds fascinating but just would appreciate some more context.

Basically Zowi is a biped robot for kids to play with, it comes accompanied with a simple mobile app that provides basic interactions and games to play with the robot.

The purpose here is to build on top of that and create a biped robot that could be programmed and controlled in different ways using scratchjr based app.

So a use case would be that a kid would open scratch, create a new project, program using the intuitive scratchjr based interface that when the robot comes near an obstacle, he can execute a dance then turn around and walk the other way. Other use cases could have some sort of interaction between the physical biped robot and a cartoon character on the screen, so when the biped robot sees an obstacle, the digital character could make an animation and sound warning him of the obstacle thus creating fun interactions between the physical robot and digital world on the mobile device.

Superb explanation here. I see the first step is listed as Establish Communication between Scratchjr and Zowi.

Can we get this moving? What are the steps involved and estimated time to complete? How many people do you need to help you? When would you like to work on this?

We need to setup the environment for those who didn’t do so already. Someone should take the task of making the Bluetooth connectivity and control between scratchjr and Zowi, it shouldn’t take more than 2-3 days.
