The Wonder Workshop robots are educational robots that are designed for children to understand computer science and grow ready for the new jobs that are coming in the digital age.
The Cue robot is designed for 11 years of age children.
The company has been working on the robot for years and has designed natural language processing in this.
Cue is compatible with iOS, Android and Kindle applications.
“We look at the right experiences to build for children of all ages so they can be the architects of tomorrow’s technology and robots,” says Wonder Workshop CEO Vikas Gupta in an interview with VentureBeat. “That is the mission on which we founded the company.”
Vikas Gupta said that one million jobs in the technology sector in the United States will be vacant in 2020 because we are not training enough people to work with them.

Gupta sent a text message to the robot, saying: “Tell me about your face lights.” The robot responded through the text: “My face is composed of 12 white LED lights that can be turned on and off”.
Gupta also asked: “What sensors do you have?” And the robot shook the sensors.
