Meet the robot that teaches coding

A robot which can be programmed to walk and talk has been developed by a US start-up.

It hopes the Play-i robot will encourage pre-schoolers to try coding, at a time when youngsters may be avid consumers of technology but have few of the skills needed to work in the industry.

The company has hit its crowdfunding target but it remains to be seen if the robots will be a hit with the public.

Richard Taylor spoke to founder Vikas Gupta.
