From the automated revolving door to programmable cookers and coffee makers, auto-vacuum cleaner to pedestrian sensors, we deal with robotics everyday of our lives. It’s no longer just about the nasty Terminator or the ever-efficient assistance Weebo from Flubber. Today, there’s a new breed of robotics that fit just right to your palm but offers a whole lot more in terms of learning and fun.

Ozobot Evo vs Bit

The basic difference between Ozobot Bit (Ozobot version 2.0) and Ozobot Evo is that Ozobot Bit is the first robot and Ozobot Evo is the second one which is manufactured from Ozobot.

When thinking of introducing your kid to the awe-inspiring world of coding and robotics, learning about miniature pieces from the Ozobot’s line will definitely rock. To start, here’s a brief overview between Ozobot Evo vs Bit, two of the brand’s award-winning coding robots.

  • Create challenges and DIY activities, or even design your own games to share with all your friends and the amazing Ozobot community.

Big surprises they say come from small packages– and that pretty sums up the essence of the Ozobot Bit Coding Robot. The first generation fit-in-you-palm coding robit from Ozobot offers never-ending fun and discovery with robotics.

Coming in either stark crystal white and midnight black titanium color, the Bit is a small robot companion that helps ignite one’s senses to learn about coding.

Upgraded Ozobot Bit 2.0 now has a bevy of apps that help enhance the Bit’s performance. Now with Ozoblockly Editor, you can program the Bit via a downloadable app for perfect maze maneuvers or to do digital dance-offs.

Ozobot Evo

Further revving up the world of miniature robotics is the app-connected coding robot– Ozobot Evo. Still sporting the same shape and size as the Bit albeit with a clear cover, it offers astounding new upgrades in terms of coding enjoyment. While it still retains the ability to perform commands on a piece of paper or cardboard and on top of a mobile device, it can be manipulated via a downloadable app.

The Ozobot Evo Coding Robot is built with more interactive sensors that respond to outside environment, speaker and lights. This multi-awarded coding robot can help to unleash creativity and imagination of children as young as 8 years old.

It can be coded via Code Evo online via the Ozoblockly editor or via the Color Code marker. Since it’s app-connected, games and creations can come in heaps– and updates are also available! That sounds like endless fun!

With these astounding features in mind, which one to pick then between the Ozobot Evo vs Bit? If you want something that will wean off a child from playing with gadgets like say a tablet, the Bit is definitely a wise choice.

It is also great for beginners who are still new to coding. For a more advanced child, the Ozobot Evo will make sense as it’s jampacked with more advanced features. Regardless, buying any of these two robotic sensations will definitely give the best bang for your hard-earned buck and most enjoyment to your child.
