Ben is a lifelong Nintendo fan who likes to build websites, and make video games. He buys way too much Lego.
Alice from Wonderland has recently mentioned a new piece of software by Microsoft called Boku. I have tried looking all the obvious places but can find very few references to it anywhere.
Bokuâ€™s programming model is extremely simple as it does not use a textual language or wiring diagrams. Kids use simple behavior cards to enable a small virtual robot to navigate its world and achieve specific tasks.
One of the developers on the project has a blog on Live Spaces so you can read a little more about the project there – but the information is very limited. There is also a small amount of extra info on Wired.com, along with some screenshots.
I think the idea of this system is great and would love to see if grow into something much bigger. If anybody knows any more information about Boku I’d love to hear it.
