EMYS has developed a friendly robotic head that teaches foreign languages to kids ages 3-7 through regular, fun interactions, focusing on simple vocabulary and expressions. EMYS appeals to multiple senses and uses language children already know, using their favorite cartoons, toys, and items from their surroundings. The robot can move, speak, recognise faces, and even express emotions to foster bonding, and uses rewards to reinforce learning. Currently the robot is equipped to teach kids English and Spanish, but the startup is developing capabilities for other languages. Founded in 2016, EMYS has already raised a pair of undisclosed seed rounds.
