TacoBot's Story

Why Design TacoBot?

TacoBot is designed by Qingfeng, Helen and RoboSpace Team. We are a group of makers, designers, and engineers. At the same time, we are also the weekend maker teachers of children in community schools.

In the process of getting along with children, we find that preschoolers have shown a deep passion for technology and creativity, but with weak hands-on ability, so they encounter many difficulties when learning with existing blocks. We hope that there is a product that allows children to interact more with the product on the premise of freely combining product functions, so children can better learn knowledge and experience the fun brought by technology. This is the original intention of Taco’s creation.
