Create Anything You Want with Robotics of Things
LUXROBO, founded in November 2014, is helping people create such devices, limited only by their imaginations, through “MODI,” its independently developed modular electronic device. Last year, LUXROBO has signed a supply contract with Technology Supplies, the UK’s largest educational materials supplier. The UK has one of the most advanced coding education systems in the world, and MODI will be supplied to some 1,000 British public schools to help students learn basic coding skills.
