This time around, two kids, Oluwatobiloba Nsikakabasi Owolola and Fathia Abdullahi, have successfully built robots used as assistants at home during chores. This was after just a year of learning how to code.
Owolola invented a robot he named the robot grabber. The robot functions as help that moves things around the house. In an interview with BBC, Owolola said:
“This is the robot grabber, I programmed it to identify an object and take it to another position.”
Abdullahi invented a robot that functions to assist people after laundry. The robot folds clothes perfectly According to her, she decided to build the robot because that was the problem she had at home. She said:
“I decided to build a robot that folds clothes because that is the problem we have at home.”
Owolola revealed that he wants to become a robotic engineer while Abudullahi said she wants to become a food scientist. The little man said he started coding at ten while the young lady revealed she started coding at the age of 11.
