Codie named most promising startup

Hungarian startup Codie was named the most promising startup at this yearʼs Hungarian Innovation TechShow (HITS), the event organizers told Hungarian news agency MTI.

Codie is a tiny wooden robot that teaches kids the principles of coding with custom-built visual programming language. With the usage of an “intuitive, creative and colorful” visual coding app, users can code a toy robot. Developers say that Codie is “a creative tool, a companion that augments other toys and games.”

The company was able to raise $82,000 for its project on the crowdfunding site IndieGoGo. Currently eight people work in Codie’s development team.
