Roybi Raises $4.2 Million Seed Round to Produce Educational Robots
JULY 2, 2019
The two-legged, pill-shaped robot—upper half green, lower half white and small enough to stand on one’s palm—starts its lesson with a greeting. Designed for children ages 3 to 7, the robot, Roybi, aims to teach kids at home a range of early-childhood developmental skills. In a rare demo of its abilities, Robyi’s founder and CEO, Elnaz Sarraf, listens to the robot name colors, animals and their accompanying noises while displaying pictures on its torso. Roybi the robot.
