Fortune-telling robot "Urara-chan

Winning Robot Fortune-telling Robot "Urara-chan

I created this robot because I thought it would be nice if it could tell fortunes for the day before going to school in the morning.

When you tap your hand, the spinning roulette stops, and when you get a big fortune, it makes a sound.

The middle course can only use a sound sensor, so it was very difficult to come up with a mechanism that makes a sound when the robot reaches the "big lucky" spot.

We devised the connection of the buzzer and touch sensor, and adjusted the programming to complete the project.

The prize-winning student "Yuka Fonjo," 4th grade elementary school student

We operate "Robot School" under a franchise agreement with Human Academy Co.

Using educational materials provided by Human Academy and our original guidance and approach, we have the largest number of students in Japan, focusing on "enhancing self-esteem and fostering the ability to play an active role in the future".

We will continue to offer free trial classes every month as a company that helps children grow through "STEAM education".
