people ❤️ Chatterbox!

  • "As technology CTO and mentor to lots of kids in robotics, one of my biggest challenges is explaining to people what AI and Machine Learning really can do. Chatterbox is a great way to demonstrate this to kids (and adults!), sparking interest in one of the most important technical revolutions in our lives."
    Steve P.
    CTO
  • "Chatterbox is more than just an environmentally friendly, clever and cute DIY smart speaker. It’s that and so much more. It allows children to expand their creative thinking and personal interests in programming by connecting with AI on a new and secure platform."
    Sylvie R.
    Librarian and Media Specialist
  • "Artificial Intelligence is all around us. Giving children the opportunity to learn about how it works — and giving them the tools and power to create and control it — is an essential skill for our times. Chatterbox brilliantly enables such discoveries in a super fun way!"
